Heck yeah! Some of my friends and I are making a couple of ramps this summer a big one, and if we use your idea then we could scale it up to make it bigger.

Yes! Looks pretty nice. I suppose I could wait for the 'ible, but how did you curve the plywood? (I'm looking to make something for my RC car to jump. I bet my RC car could grind the rail, too!)

well it takes a lot of screws and a special technique of mine. leave it out in the rain all night on your patio or drive way and then wait for the sun to dry it and then you pick it up you will see that the back is damp that makes it possible to bend it.

Yes, looks good, I was thinking of making a linear one, no curve for a specific purpose... I'm going to jump something in my street, only it may end in death... Also kiteman's law applies, thou shalt post, I'll dig out the link...

Well one involves about a twenty foot drop and the other is about 10feet edge to edge, with about a 30 foot run up, I might be able to get the speed, I cna get shifting pretty fast but...

Often one of the stumbling blocks to living a simpler life is our inability or unwillingness to change how we play some of the games that got us into these complicated lives in the first place. Elaine St. James in other words: what Kiteman said.....

I could vote 8 more times maybe :-) So, you are saying, if 7 more people want you to, instead of 8 more, because you are one short, you will deprive those 9 people and the rest of the world from your instructable?
