This is a problem with collosion detection.

once your vehicle is within an approriate distance from a spot on the ramp you will want the vehicle to no longer move horizontal with the ground.

You need some logical statement that rotates your car the right amount to make it apear to be running on the ramp.

I know how to get the if/else stuff, but how do you make it actually work. In my project I put if my vehicle got 0metres above from a cylinder, it would do my first method, but nothing happened
