Default dies after jumping

I need help gents. I have a torpeda that I recently put a xtm 24/7 in it. Well, I have put 12 tanks of fuel through her and decided it was time to do some jumping. Here is the problem, after landing the jump the buggy dies, just shuts off. I have put a new fuel tank and fuel line on her but to no avail. So I checked the carb to see maybe it was loose, but it was not. Why! Why! does this happen. HELP

I thought about that to. I replaced with a new one and made sure it was good and tight.

ok, re read your post, it runs fine but only dies when you jump?  Does it start right back up?

yes it does. One or two pulls. It runs great until I start hitting the jumps.

possible the carb is closing from the jolt of the landing? i would say plug but you changed it already.

thats a great point. I will check the carb and make sure the gap is correct. Later today I will take a jump and then check the carb to see if it closed. Thanks bro. I hope this is my problem.

Just wondering if the lid on his tank isn't popping up on the landing causing him to lose back pressure

Idk if it would stall that fast if the tank lid pops open but hey you never know. Also maybe when you land hard something pops threw the chassis and hits the fly wheel and stops it from turning. Iv seen it happen a few times.
