Re: need to build a ramp for hot wheels car
A fairly simply way to do this would be to construct it out of aluminum flashing. You will need a pair of tin ships and a tin crimping tool. With a little trial and error you should be on your way. Here is a picture to assist you.

front wheels not positioned far enough forward
carer not paying attention to the ramp and possible risks
talk with disability persons equipment retailers as they have a good idea of the risks involved with wheel chairs and can advise you on how to overcome the problem
I cant take credit for this one, but I do have an improvement. do your ramps "skate" accross the smooth garage floor as you try to drive up them? Same thing in gravel? An old tie down or seat belt strapped to the top of the ramps and placed under both wheels on the same side of the ramp will stop it from sliding away. For better results, my improvement is to fasten the strap around the drive wheel so it is essentially a pully making sure the ramp goes under the wheel.
Note that ramps are really dangerous, make sure there are other people around, underneeth, infront, behind, or anywhere else. be careful, its easy to launch off ramps or put them all the way underneeth the car.
Alot of people feel just a little bit uneasy when it come to getting under a car when on car ramps. A little trick is to drive the car on the ramps, put blocks, or wheel chucks behind the grounded tires. Then using a jack, jack one of the ramped tires up enough to remove its ramp. Reverse that ramp and then lower the vehicle down. It can't roll down the ramps because it is wheel locked inplace. Please though reverse that prcedure to drive it off the ramps.
Please note, I selected Chevy as the manufacturer only because 'any' is not an option
Not likely. You need to be able to remove the wheels to separate the tie rod ends from the steering knuckle. That would be extremely difficult to do with the wheels on and the car on ramps. Also, the rack most likely will be coming out through one of the wheel wells.
varies slightly as u didnt give model, i run front wheels onto car ramps and block rear wheels, then in middle of blade is a large bolt hold blade with leather glove and unscrew, put new one on and tighten,
It can be towed as long as they lift it on the drive wheels. It cannot be towed on a ramp truck unless they remove the drive shaft first. Dragging your car even a few inches runs the risk of breaking the park mechanism and repair will require removal and complete disassembly of your transmission. Hire an old style tow truck that can lift your car to tow it and you should be okay.
If the car is situated in such a way as to prevent them from hooking up to the drive wheels then tell them when you call that you need a truck with "dolly wheels". These are wheeled ramps that your locked drive wheels can be placed on and the car moved. It may cost a little extra but not as much as fixing your transmission. Be there when they come to get it and make sure they do it right. Hope this helps.
1500Kg is more likely to be the maximum towing weight.
You should, in theory, be able to launch and recover a boat/trailer of this combined weight ok, but in practise you need to consider how slippery the ramp is and if your front wheel drive vehicle will be able to cope with it.
Use a long strop attached to the trailer and looped around the towing hitch, to launch and recover the boat, so your car stays well away from the water.
You could have some problems getting enough grip with your front wheel drive, when recovering a boat.
I have had to recover my boat from a rocky beach when I couldn't get it back to the launch ramp because of bad weather. I was very thankful that I had a four wheel drive car for that.
What ever you do, ALWAYS plan carefully exactly how you are going to do the launch or recovery and make sure you stop and think about it before doing it.
