What's a Stinger For ?
Stingers serve many purposes. This is a picture of my stinger:

Remember mine is much taller than it actually needs to be. Stingers should not interfere with your approach angle, so the angle of the stinger varies on a lot of factors. The easiest thing to do is to use a sheet of plywood, against the tires, and lift it up until it hits something, your stinger should not be in the way. A stinger can be used to prevent you from going over when coming down steep obstacles, if can also be used to ramp up steep obstacles in cases where the tires might not hit the obstacle first. In the event of a roll-over if your stinger is properly braced, it will protect the radiator.
