Now don't laugh...
I found a very crappy pic from about two years.
It's not really a track (kind of a figure 8), but it was fun as hell.

If you can actually make out what's in the photo, it was made out of matte board.

btw: In a different configuration, we were jumping twice that distance with stock Zs..

Here's the other crappy pic showing a lower bank.
What's not shown are the quarter pipes for going up on the couch.
Ugly but fun!

Ken, I hope you'll give those mini-z's a dignified funeral when your finished with them :D Jumping with my loved mini-z in a ramp is not one of the first thing I'll do... ;)

ultrawide,
That was two years ago. Both Zs are still in great shape today.
Broken H-plates; motor clips; servo gears; antennas are unrelated to ramp racing.

Initial D,
Oddly enough, that carpet is a great surface for Zs. (super dense, short nap.)
The matte board offers descent grip too.


[edit] Start off small with ramps. A landing ramp is a must. Your Z will encounter no more than normal racing damage.
