Hi, newbie here... Jordsta's the name! How're y'all doin? :)

I'm an Aussie bloke who is about to make some DJ styled ramps for BMX. I to, wanted to know what is the optimum height but I also want to know a couple of other things if you guys can help, please?

This is for a local festival Expo my groups/companies are putting on for our town's 150th Birthday celebrations in march next year.

I intend to make a triple pack line of jumps finishing with a vert quarter pipe at the end. I figure we will start from a take-off ramp for rolling start to a 4'er- gap- to down ramp, then a 4' Table Top then a 3'er to down ramp and on to the Quarter pipe to return.

My questions are;

What are the optimum transitions/radii for each of these ramps and how do I best set up the down ramps? Should they be just flat trans like in a skate park or like FMX or should I put some radius into them?
would it also help if when I do the tar lining bit, could I put in some 1/4" rubber instead for a softening of impact effect?

Also for the 4" of vert Q-pipe, what is the best trans for this. It will probably finish at a height of 6' or 7' there abouts...


Any information will be greatly appreciated.

Cheers ;)
