Suggestions for car ramps

I have an 04 Cobra. I like to change the oil myself to avoid someone else making a mess.

I always have a terrible time getting this car up onto my ramps. I have to use extra boards to keep the front from dragging. The car pushes the ramps out from under it every time. I bought new ramps with a slightly lesser angle but same results. I know it sounds crazy, I have changed oil on my Mustang GT (95) with no problem. Is this car more front end heavy??

Any sugestions??

Tie a long small rope freely at the end of both ramps going past the car and let your front tires follow the ropes. That way the ramps will not slide by the weight of the car holding the ramps still. Not the best example in the world but it gives an idea.

Just make your own with some 2x12's. If you have a really low car, you can make them long so that the front does not drag.
Stack 2-3 together like so:
