Topics I've Started

12" high Race Ramps w/cradle top platform and 5 degree initial slope

18 March 2018 - 04:57 PM

A couple of years ago I started selling the 12" high RLL-78-2 ramp in response to requests for a higher ramp. It is basically an oversized version of the 10" high 67" RR-XT-2 ramp. Unfortunately, that means the ramp is too steep for a GT-R. Some customers use the RR-EX-14 extender ramps (intended for the 67" ramps) with the 78" ramp. 

With a 12" high ramp, it's more difficult to get a floor jack under the rear of the car when the front tires are on the ramp platforms. In some cases, with long wheelbase vehicles, it's possible to use Roll-ups or Trak-Jax under the rear tires to make more room for a floor jack. With short wheelbase cars, there's usually not enough room to use Roll-ups with anything longer than an 80" ramp.

Other considerations with 12" high ramps and low ground clearance cars are the possibility of scraping the tail pipes when driving up the ramps or ripping off the front bumper when backing onto the ramps.

I will be featuring a new ramp model at the 2018 Spring Carlisle Car Show next month that addresses some of these issues. It will not be an inexpensive solution and some forum members will probably scoff at the design and price. This RLL-116-3 ramp is a three section ramp with three progressively steeper inclines. The center section has tapered ends to make it easier to remove once the car is on the ramps. An optional extension will be offered for longer wheelbase cars. All the sections are less than 48" long and the ramp can be transported with a mid-size SUV or short-bed pickup. This ramp was developed to meet the requirements of customers wanting to inspect very low ground clearance cars in the field.

This ramp will only be available in a heavy duty version (2500# per tire capacity). It will feature a double textured bottom surface and will include a pair of Race Ramps wheel chocks.

Pearl RearVision - the logical choice for a wireless backup camera system

06 April 2017 - 02:34 PM

Reverse Logic is now stocking and shipping the Pearl RearVision wireless backup system. The system installs in 10 minutes without any cable connections.

 
The system consists of three primary hardware components, the license plate frame, the OBD2 adapter, and a magnetic cell phone mount. It displays the rear camera image on your iPhone or Android cell phone. The OBD2 adapter generates a WiFi signal that allows the cameras to communicate with your cell phone.
 
The system does require you to launch the Pearl RearVision app on your phone before an image is displayed. In practice this small inconvenience is not very annoying since you are probably handling your phone to mount it in its dashboard holder when you first enter your car. 
 
Reverse Logic will be demonstrating the system in Building T at the Spring Carlisle Car Show on April 19 thru 23 later this month.
 
More details are available in the Reverse Logic online catalog.
