    That's a good one

    On a 23 degree ramp last year my k5 ramped 867

    This year with the new set up and s-10 body- ramped 516
    (Yikes) A bit on the stiff side :(

    A while back someone gave me a formula for calculating an RTI, I htink it was 6.2Blazer.

    The formula is:

    RTI = Inches tire lifted x 27.456

    **This is only for a wheelbase of 106.5 on a 20 degree ramp**
