    Now that I have some measurements from BlazerFest, I wanted to figure out my score. I know there was a little Java applet somewhere (maybe POR?) that you could plug in the ramp angle and either the height of the tire, or the distance up the ramp and it would calculate the RTI for you.

    I did a spreadsheet that calculated RTI scores based on the wheel height, but my measurements are for "distance up the ramp" so I need to see the original formula again to re-do my cheat sheet.

    Anyone know where the link is...? /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    Hey Greg, Don't forget, if you measured from the end of the ramp, add 12 inches, cause that would be where the ramp theoretically starts, but distance travelled divided by wheelbase times 1000. easy /forums/images/icons/wink.gif /forums/images/icons/smile.gif /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    Leland,

    The degree of the ramp somehow also has to be in that calculation too....?


    I could drive forever up a 1 degree ramp! /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    BTW -> I accounted for the 12" extra length, and scored an 822. Not bad for an "offroading newbie"....!!!

    Tori,

    That pic is COOL! It sure didsn't FEEL level when I was doing it, but that's probably just 'nerves' from the bad Friday afternoon experience.....

    822 with stock length front shocks....imagine what could be accomlished with a few bumpstops, limiting straps, and a set of 9012's up front? /forums/images/icons/cool.gif

    Thanks for getting the pic. I'm posting that one at work!
