Default gst ramp

does anyone know how to make a cheap ramp (not dirt) that will hold up to my gst and give me good air?

Just find some wood or go to the hardware store and look around. Be creative. Its not like your jumping a 1:1 car. Alot of different materias will work.

Have fun doing it also.

i found a curved peice of wood and screwed it to some more wood and it launches my savage about 15 feet in the air at 30 mph. it os only about 16" tall and it works great. just use some scrap wood and screw it togather and hope it works. It doesnt have to be too extravegent, just make it work.I cant imagine a ramp breaking from a gst or savage or anything unless you use wimpy 1/8" thick wood.
