For some cars with very low ground clearance, the 10.75 degree incline of the standard RR-56 or RR-XT (67") Race Ramps is still too steep. The GT-R can back up on to the ramps, but, the front of the car will not clear the standard ramps. For these cases optional XTender Ramps with a 6.8 degree approach incline are available. The XTenders are 45" long and about half of this length overlaps the primary ramp. So, the overall length of the ramp is increased by about two feet when using the XTenders.
Reverse Logic Limited requested Brute Industries to manufacture a modified ramp design which incorporates a 2-stage incline into the ramp section of the RR-56-2 and RR-XT-2 two-piece Race Ramps. We started shipping these new ramps at the end of January.
Some customers have been asking what is the value proposition of the two-stage incline ramps. A 10" high ramp with a 6.8 degree incline would be about 100" in length. That's over 8 feet long. It would require more material to manufacture and the shipping costs would be very high (not that they are not high now) since oversize surcharges would apply. A two piece 100" long ramp would be awkward to store and transport. But perhaps the biggest disadvantage to a ramp with the single 6.8 degree incline angle is that the rear tires of many cars would reach the starting edge of the ramps when the front tires hit the stop on the platform. With the rear tires on the ramps it would not be possible to remove the incline section for access from the side of the car.
Two models of the two-piece two-stage incline ramps are available. The RLL-87-2 is 10" high 14" wide and 87" long. The RLL-72-2 model is 8" high 12" wide and 72" long. The price of $415 for the pair of RLL-87-2 Race Ramps includes shipping to any destination in the 48 Continental States. The RLL-72-2 Race Ramps are $305 and also include shipping to the Continental States.
See the attached drawings for the dimensions of the ramps.
