building an rti ramp?

Hey, does anyone have plans for a easily portable, maybe even collapsible rti ramp? I'm interested in on that can be taken to events without a lot of hassle, yet still be safe to use. I'm especially looking for one to use at Zuwharrie...any ideas or advice?

Re: building an rti ramp?

Well I don't have plans but I think we will fab one up at the
Fab fest! No event is compleate without one! How high do they need to be? 20Deg or 30? Is there a standard width?

Re: building an rti ramp?

20 degree is the most common, but folks are doing 30 degrees as the rigs are getting more radical. How about an adjustable one?

One thing that was mentioned after the Melt. RTI contests should be for Suzuki axle rigs and another for other type axles.

Build a 30* ramp. Many suspensions nowadays are easily maxxing out 20* ramps. Build a 30 and you should never come up short.

Re: building an rti ramp?

Well I think we will just make a 30deg one. how long and high do I make it? (In ft) How wide? I guess 1 ft would be fine.

Re: building an rti ramp?

I agree, an adjustable one would be cool, but unless you're running coils at all 4 corners on a tube buggy, I doubt anyone will max one in the New England area. There is a 23 degree one we play on locally, and so far I have gotten to 505 on it, and only seen a Jeep go to 800, but there was a custom coil Rover that maxed it out, so they are building a 25 degree one.

I can help with the design, I love working on stuff like this. It'd be fairly easy to build an adjustable one as well, you could use a bottle jack to change settings, but if you build it light enough, you could just do it by hand.

Re: building an rti ramp?

Sammis like mine or the YJ springed sammis should go over 1000 on 23 degree ramps. I scored 864 on a 30 degree and better after loosening my shackles but that doesnt count cuz i dont drive on the trail like that

Re: building an rti ramp?

you can put wheels on it and tow it to events with your sami, if its under a certain width you dont need lights or have to register it (like a log splitter for example)
