I'm in the web searching for a good ramp that less me go at the bottom of the car. Looked at autozone advance auto both cheap and useless. Does anybody know if these ramps are any good Race Ramps RR-56-2 56. They say it work good with corvettes, which is a low car. And that's why the autozone and advance auto ones didn't work it was hitting my bumper so I couldn't even get the car up on the ramps

Race Ramps have a method to determine the ramp you need based on the rise/run to clear the front of your car. Scroll down to page 5.

http://www.raceramps.com/uploaded-files/media/RR%20Catalog%202012_KC_FINAL.pdf

56” and 67” Race Ramps:
Place one end of a yardstick at the front inside edge
of the tire contact patch of either front tire. Elevate the
opposite end of the yardstick until it touches the bottom
of the front spoiler. Measure the vertical distance from
the ground at the elevated end of the yardstick. If that
distance is greater than 7.25”, your car will clear these
ramps without a problem.

I'm in the market for some new ones myself. My current ramps are steel but they have a raised lip (for strength I assume) that hits the front air dam. The RR-40 is in my price range, but I have to measure it to see if my Forte5 won't scuff.

Looks like there is a lightly used ramp saie on their site, http://www.raceramps.com/ltp-products.aspx

OK, so I took a yardstick and performed the test Race Ramps suggest. I took the yardstick and measured from the tire and lifted it until it hit the bumper. Then measured from the end of the yardstick to the floor, and it was about 11 inches.
Using the formula Sin (x) = Opposite / Hypotenuse I get Sin (x) = 11/36 = .30555555 Take the Inverse Sin of .305555 and you get an angle of 17.79 or 18 degrees.
SOOO, I am pretty sure the RR-40's will work for my car at least. :D To be safe, I'd do the test for your guys cars just to be sure.

I need to get out and do that since I am lowered. I want a ramp thats going to lift the car higher then what my ramps do now. Since I am a bigger dude I need that lol!!!

Here is mine, sinC=7.5/36=.208=12°, hmm so to achieve 10" of lift my the incline of the ramp would need to be 50" long lol
