They come off easily but you have to lay down on the ground

Agreed ^^^^^ I paid $300+ for 10" Race Ramps ( 3 years ago) that are light, long and work for my 3 cars . I pay more than $400 for a monthly commuter pass and parking ( so in comparison, not a lot of $ for the ramps).

The only down side I see with foam ramps is you don't want to drop them near the leading edge, you may damage them. As well, I always sweep that area of driveway to clear any pebbles, they'll dent the foam. Mine look brand new after 30 +/- uses.

I slide a 5 gallon bucket under the car to capture all 10 quarts. Easy peasy...

After having watched this video years ago I made the same extenders and to this day I still have and use them regularly. They are not quite as convenient as just having the long Race Ramps but they work and easy to build.

Can you please provide the Race Ramps model number that you have?
I presume they work for a ZL1?
I'm looking to purchase a set for oil changes on my ZL1.
I used the Race Ramp online calculator and they provide many model numbers that are possibilities.
I'm "thinking" the 56-race-ramp model would work?
I just would like to confirm what works.
Thanks,

These are the ramps I have. I’ll send a pic of the Z approach angle later today or tomorrow.

I have the 56" Ramp Ramps that I paid $235 for off Amazon and my ZL1 drives up on them perfectly with no issues.

As promised, here are the pics. As a note, for the ramps I have, you’ll either need use a small piece of carpet or rubber matting @ ~ 3/8” to the leading edge of the ramps. Otherwise, you may scrape the underside rubber air deflectors.

Good luck with whatever you choose.

So if the 67in barely clears the lower air deflectors under the splitter, how the heck to do the 57in work?

The angle of the 57” ramps @ 8” tall is exactly the same as 67” ramps @ 10” tall (10.8 degrees)

The only benefit of longer ramps is overall height.
