    Race Ramps?

    Any interest in Race Ramps?
    New product line I am thinking about looking into if there is enough interest.

    They look really nice, better than the crap ones I have right now that my firebird can't drive up. How much would they cost, didn't see any price?

    I like em, the 1 piece 56" ramps are ONLY $214. Where I do think a set would be nice, I can get other ramps for cheaper...

    I will agree, some people go nuts over these things but honestly as a consumer...the price for ramps is HIGH.
    wanted to get a feeling if anyone else would be interested in a set.
    They do offer a lot of different ramps and could see getting a set if I had the volume of cars that would support the investment.

    I love the 12" wheel cribs, talk about getting some good clearance under the car on all four corners. Just don't care to swing $100 for pedestals lol!

    Now wanna know what I could buy? These:



    They are called Max Jax. They are a portable lift system, pretty kick ass if you ask me. Just put em where you want, lift the car, work on it, lower, and stow the lifts any where you want out of your way. More info: http://maxjaxusa.com/features.html

    I don't have a ceiling tall enough to make proper use of a lift though

    Just saw the stuff for the MaxJax, yes it needs to be bolted to the floor, but it is a pretty cool setup nonetheless.

    After having a lift for some time now, I would never lift a car with a set that wasn't bolted to the floor.

    Ah, I see now. You leave the studs in the floor and lift them off them by the wheels.

    Yeah the first time I set mine up, a few of the nuts weren't tq'd enough and one of the legs started to tilt, then my car was stuck in the air for a couple hours 'till I got it sorted. Scared the crap out of me.

    Either way, I find that the lift doesn't get in the way much, except when parking between the posts, have to be careful of opening the doors.

    See I think for home use those would be kick ass. Although, Id like to have a regular 2 post lift so we can park 2 cars on one side of the garage. Apparently the dealerships around here sell their "old" lifts every couple years, and you can snag em up for like $800. Our house is 2 stories, and the ceiling in the garage is like 15ft, which is more than enough clearance.
