    I found a website last year that had a chart on it that would allow you to punch in the wheelbase of your vehicle and the heighth the tire was off the ground and it would then calculate the score for you. You could also put in the degree of the ramp. I haven't been able to find this site again. Does anybody know where I can find it? Thanks.

    i dont know where the website is but it you have a ramp you can use this equation to get your score.

    distance up ramp/wheelbase x 1000 = RTI

    good luck.

    I'm guessing the "distance up ramp" is in inches??

    For a Blazer(106.5" wheelbase) the formula is Distance of tire off ground x 27.456= your RTI on a 20 degree ramp for a 25 degree ramp divide the RTI by 1.236666.Brady

    You may also want to take into account spring rates, shock length, tires ect.
