I guess that is good if you are going under the car from the front. But, what if you want to go under from the side? I like to go in from the side to get my drain plug and oil filter off. Do the longer ramps interfere with side access?

Nope, both longer and shorter 2 piece race ramps have removable lower sections...

When I take the lower ramps off, I leave a note on my seat to reinstall before starting car. You’re probably thinking, seriously, who would drive off the ramps before installing lower sections? I almost did it a couple years back .
I started the car, checked for leaks, let the car fully warm, checked for leaks again while I listened to some tunes. I was so pleased with my success, I decided to go for a ride, put the car in reverse, hit the gas and the car wouldn’t move. Then the sinking feeling , the only thing stopping the car from ejecting itself off the upper platforms is the rear wheel chocks.

Not true. The 67" are also wider and support tires up to 12" wide. The 56" race ramps are only rated for 10" wide. This was the only reason I went with the 67" ones when I bought my ramps for my 1LE.

Yep, you’re correct on that.
