How to build a wooden ramp for rc's
ramp.jpg

Box 1: Make 2 pieces of ply wood cut like this in your own desired shape/size/angle
Box 2: Stand the two up and connect the sides with 2x4's
Box 3: Put a thin piece of plywood on it and screw it on the edges of the ramp
Box 4: Make a "U" with the wood and screw it to the back like above in red
Box 5: Thats all. Hope you build it. Hope you like it.
Attention!- In the second step screw the plywood to the 2x4's on each side.

post image of the ramp that you make in the comments so I everyone can see them.

That will make a good solid ramp, me and my buddy's use to make skate ramps similar to that when I was younger.

I'm in the process of makin a jump now..... but its just got a consistant incline without a kick so i can get used to takin it off jumps for abit......(some off you probably think I'm bein soft but my buggy has spent 90% of its time since i bought it off the road n busted) but for the part of the ramp the buggy runs over will be perspex cos we thinkin off doin videos therefore we can stash a video camera inside the ramp for the videos....what ya think bout that ida people????.... but once i get used to jumpin(which hopefully will only be a few runs over a day or 2 then i can adjust the jump with a kick for more fun, which will be easy because its made from perspex........

let me know what you think????? any tips would be greatly appreciated.....

I'm having trouble uploading pics here so ill post a facebook link to check it out.....here is the link......

if by 'plexiglass' you mean 'perspex' then yes it is gnarkill......
i know it needs more vert big jilm, which ill do sometime real soon after have a few runs over the jump the way it is.......and then ill be able to undo the screws goin through the perspex and add more underneath to create more vert.......but grab that piece of perspex you got and get building...... this only took bout 30-40 minutes to make....
