I am an IDIOT!!! Zl1 FAIL. Raceramp FAIL. | Brian Gabel

If you have a RWD car and you're planning to lift it up using ramps on the front and floor jack on the rear, watch this first.

I was planning to lift up my car using the same setup: ramps on the front, then jack up the rear to rest the tires on wheel cribs. On a FWD car, this probably would have been fine if you put the transmission in gear before jacking up the car. On a RWD car, both the drive wheels and parking brake is set on the rear wheels, so there was nothing to stop the front wheels from rolling back.
