The end with the ramp is stabilized by the ramp. Take a cereal box lay it on it's side and push down an slightly forward near the end of the box. See how easily you can tip it. That is the motion your car will apply to your ramp when you drive up and apply the brakes. You don't want your ramp to flip forward.
      It will make your cuts a bit more complex. Just my opinion and its worth what you paid for it.
