I thought countersunk screws would be enough on mine, but these psychos from Michigan tore four of them out 🤣🤣 so now I am using 10-24 x 2” bolts with fender washers and nylon locking nuts on the backside. 🤣🤣💪🏻💪🏻

Put 3/4” ply woods on the side. A bunch more screws and I think it’s good to go. I’m getting a feel for it.
If you’re worried about weight, you can cut some large holes in the side panels to add lightness. Use a large hole saw. Circles will not reduce the strength much. But it can lighten quite a bit.

It’s pretty light. I can handle it by myself. It’s all 1/4”‘s so it’s not too bad. I will definitely remember the tip!

I started hitting the backflips after my camera woman went inside. Kraton is pretty agile in the air.

Oh and I hit the fence all the time. That stupid fence is not secured at the bottom. Your wheels will go under it and get stuck. Pisses me off haha.

I would go cornet to corner and get more run up. Also those trees are begging for a kiss 😘
Those trees have been kissed a lot over the years. Many broken parts from tree hugs. They mark my figure 8 in the back yard. The ramp is for my Moms pasture and for the park. I don’t have the room for an adequate send. I’m a tree hugger, and kisser haha.

Gonna be sending the mail this weekend!
Looks like you may need a longer flatter approach to your ramp. If it’s any thing like mine it’s gonna be brutal

Looks about like mine. I’ve had a blast with mine as have others that have tried it. Seems like the Michigan Sunday Funday guys like it. 👍🏻
