If you want to run 4 Z (or Y) motors with RAMPS, it is possible. To do this, you must have a 24V system (so each series motor gets 12V). This allows you to stay within the current limits of the drivers, without having to use larger drivers if you were running all 4 in parallel.

Ultimate Test

Wire as in picture. That should work.
