Like 2 pallets under the ramp or have 2 pallets next to each other and take off the bottom of the dropin and prop the far pallet from drop in up for a ramp? Should I just prop everything up with cinder and the place pallets under? Should I cut the pallets at a rounded angle if they go in the center and not under?
So what I did was steal a bit of what the Msnow dude did here:
...but the transition (on the one I built) isn't nearly as smooth as his... (I'd take a pic but it is sort of disassembled in the basement right now). I think the speed of the Msnow sort of makes up for the fact that my transition isn't as smooth. Mine looked a lot like yours initially, but the way mine was built (more wood in structure). I just cut what I had and sort of hinged it at less of an angle toward the bottom....so it goes from maybe 55 degrees to 30 degrees to flat rather than an abrupt 55 degrees to flat like it used to.
On your setup that would be tough to pull off so I think you could do something more like the mSnow video above where he climbs some plywood (probably two pieces) and mellow out that steep to flat tranny to more rounded and less abrupt. Seems like you could shim in a similar manner. It wouldn't look as clean as what you have now, but it would be functional.
Maybe other people have better ideas, but it seems you could get away with it pretty cheap with a couple small pieces of plywood and some blocking underneath.
