  1. Today we loaded the "new" smart (2016), and my bride declared she doesn't like the DCT for driving up the ramps. She never flinched loading the "old" (2013) car. So, I'm investigating winches. My plan is to get a winch with at least a 50% overkill factor. My issue is, I don't know how to calculate the "pull" needed to briong a 1800# car , plus driver, up a ramp with a 3-1 slope. I'll mount the winch to the tow eye provided with the car, so no rollers, fairleads, or fancy fixtures will be necessary. (Thanks for the idea, Darryl.) I know, there's only one tow eye. Not concerned about it. Given that the tow eye is designed to pull out a stuck vehicle, I'm counting on it being robust enough for this task.
