THE RTI RAMP
Another spectator favorite. The RTI ramp is a test of a vehicle’s articulation. Articulation is the term used to describe a vehicles ability to twist the suspension. Greater articulation allows a vehicle to keep all wheels on the ground keeping traction.
The ramp is a single wheel ramp that a vehicle drives up either forward or backward. The vehicle proceeds up the ramp until a wheel lifts off the ground and looses traction. A score is derived from the length up the ramp divided by the vehicle wheelbase. Typically longer vehicles will score lower due to the wheelbase.
The Twisted Willys equipped with a split frame could almost drive off the top of the ramp. Definitely fun to watch.
