Race Ramps

I am looking to order some race ramps to make working on my lowered 5th Gen Camaro & my already low enough 2015 Nissan 370Z. Anyone have experience with these? I looked on the site & am not sure which is the right product for me. I'm thinking I need the extenders to make the ramp more gradual especially for the Z, but not sure how much height I need to comfortably work. I am also thinking about getting the storage ramps to prevent the tires going flat-sided especially over the winter. Any input/experience appreciated.

I bought these and absolutely love them. https://www.amazon.com/Race-Ramps-RR...e%2Bramps&th=1

The two piece is great for when you have to get to the side of the car.

To determine if you need the extenders or not do the yard stick test. Push one end of a yardstick up against the edge of either front tire. Raise the other end of the yardstick until the yardstick just barely touches any part of the car anywhere along the length of the yardstick. Don't bend the stick since this will produce an incorrect test result. Using a tape measure or suitable ruler, measure the height of the yardstick at the tip of the raised end (the 36" mark). If this height is at least 7.25" then you don't need extenders. If the height of the raised end of the yardstick is less than 7.25" but more than 5", then you will need extenders.

I'm lowered 1.5 all around and we have race ramps that I use to check turbo stuff and change oil. Works really good for my c5 corvette which is extremely annoying to get under neith.

Race ramps are definitely a good buy

They are the best ramps I've ever owned. Highly recommend them for cars with low ground clearance.

No they won’t. They’re flat on the bottom and will not dig into anything.

Do they tend to slide when you drive up on them on smooth concrete? Or is the ramp incline such that it is not a problem?
