    I scored a 845 on a 20 degree ramp tonight. I thought that was pretty good since I have 33's and no lift at this point. The only advantage I had was the swawbar disconnect. I am doing a four inch lift on Sunday, so we will see how I do at next months meeting.

    Sounds cool. I have no clue how ramps are judged, but I do know the top is 1000pts.

    I'm pretty sure the way they score it is to divide the distance up the ramp traveled (before you lift a tire) by the wheelbase of the vehicle and multiply by a thousand.

    Ya doing it on Sat or Sun? I wouldn't be able to do it on Sat. but maybe Sun. I'll pyle the family in the Blazer and take a road trip. Will your kids be there?

    I was going to do it on Sunday, Monday, but now we are going to do it on Saurday and Sunday. We will be doing it at the house, so yes the whole familly will be here. I think this is going to turn into a Blazer lift party![​IMG]

    Well I've just been informed that I have a "party" to attend on Sunday. But I'm still gonna try to get out of it and go to the BLAZER-LIFT party. I'll let you know.

    Hey that's a pretty good score.
    Congrats!
    Morphed86k10 has the right answer on the rti
    the degree is the steepness of the ramp.
