theabortionatorI wouldn't worry about having too much speed. Most people are always looking for more speed because they build them too small. And there are ways to slow it down if needed.
As far as angles there are some steep and mellow ones I've ridden that are both nice. Mellower is a little easier to set for a trick, and the transition is slow so you don't have that hit at the base, but they can also be slower.
If it's steep make sure you still have a decent transition though so you don't lose your speed and get thrown off at the base.
yungmoneyThe first angle is only gonna be like 4, 5 feet long before the next angle-- I'm trying to make a rough quarter pipe drop. shit will be niiice and curvy and smooth
I think what I'll do is make it pretty steep for that extra speed, then make the flat part of the tranny longer, giving more time to prepare after dropping. win-win
