Ramp Travel Index ?

Just curious if there's anytype of conversion for measuring RTI scores
from a 20 degree ramp to a 25 degree ramp to a 30 degree ramp on the web?
I scored a 640 on a 25 degree ramp was curious what that equates to a
a 20 degree ramp and a 30 degree ramp!

Re: Ramp Travel Index ?

Do a search on the Short Wheelbase BBS, I posted some stuff awhile ago about RTI's vs RHI's (Ramp Height Index).

Just doing the math really quick, 640 on a 25, I'm assuming 80" wheelbase, is

789 on a 20 degree ramp
691 on a 23 degree ramp
540 on a 30 degree ramp

This question is why I want to convert from RTI to RHI, it negates the use of the degree ramp. I also gave instruction on how to calculate other RTI's from your present RTI. It's a lot of discussion, and I didn't want to post it all here.
