How to Make an RC Car Ramp

If you enjoy playing with remote-controlled cars you probably like seeing the vehicle flip over ramps and fall off your furniture. However, if you do not have any ramps at home and don't want to spend the money on already-built ramps, it is possible to design and create your very own ramp with a few products you probably already have sitting around at home.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Remove the bag insert from any cereal box. It is also possible to use a cracker box or any other top-opening box. Position the box in front of you so the flaps to open the cardboard box are facing you. The front of the box should face the ceiling (the base of the box is furthest away from you).

  2. 2

    Cut along the top two corners, from the opening of the box down to the base. Do not cut down past the base or detach the side from the base. This releases one side of the cardboard from the rest of the box sides.

  3. 3

    Push the top of the cut box down to meet the opposite side of the box. Tape it down so it does not pull up. This creates a ramp as the cardboard curves up toward the end of the box.

  4. 4

    Apply additional tape along the sides where the cut box meets the still-intact sides. This helps secure the ramp when using your RC car. Once you have finished with the tape you are all set to begin using your new ramp.
