Building a ramp

Post  xanthra on Thu Jul 01, 2010 10:36 pm

I want to get some good air with our Maxxes but I'd also like our Mini-Ts to survive landings in a parking lot.
What do you guys think would work well?

Its not so much about the take off... as it is the landing... plan for a landing on a slight decline and it will allow you to get more air because the landing will be smoother and easier on the trucks...

xanthra -- I will try to get the support strips cut this weekend.

I still think we go 30" wide, 2.5 to 3 car lengths long and a 20 degree incline....

Does anyone else have suggested dimensions?
