Default Should I buy a ramp or make one?

Me and my dad (STL-BLK Revo 3.3) each have nitro rc cars. I have a 2007 nitro rustler and my dad has a revo and I'm tired of using my friends ramps so what do I do, buy it or make it?

Default Ramps?

I am not aware of pre-made ramps you can buy.....most people build them...just get some scrap plywood and 2x4s...

Classic. . .

Should point out Tom is only 11, but he does have to buy any parts that he breaks or any accessories he wants. Might have to start charging him gas money to go to the Hobby Shop though!

We will get up a formal introduction and pics this weekend. Plenty of time to run the cars!

Walmart has these bicycle/skateboard ramps but for the price you can get some plywood and make your own .
