Great tip! I have often experienced the problem you describe.

I usually place a spare wheel flat on the floor behind each ramp. It's not only to keep them from slipping, but I'm always scared senseless that I will somehow overshoot (shudder ). Having something to land on in case it goes wrong gives me confidence. I once witnessed a friend put a ramp through the bottom of his old rotten Mazda 323 by driving to far. Not pretty but very entertaining .
