Hmm. . . You can't modify the ball or the ramp. Those are two constraints that don't leave much room for improvement. Is changing the pitch angle of the ramp allowed? I suppose not. How about moving the ramp into a vacuum chamber? If you place the ramp and ball in a vacuum chamber and purge the air, you will eliminate -- or at least greatly reduce -- the friction due to air resistance. In a vacuum, the ball should roll down the ramp faster. How about blowing the ball down the ramp? Get behind the ball and, once it's rolling, blow hard! Better yet, get a hair blow-dryer and really give it a boost.
