No option for "scared S***less to even think about trying, even if I DO own a savage*

+1 to that ^

What!!! You have a savage and you haven't even tried a backflip? We did a backflip with our savage x 4.6 (my son and I) the very first day it was broke in. I've tried a double but haven't landed it, so I have to clam 1 for now.... not forever though. I've also tried front flips, which ended up nose dives. My favorite are the "missed the ramp" spin around in the air and land on the wheels ones though.

Landed 1 on the good ole electric Stampede.

Almost got two, but the moment of landing was right when the front was going to come up to flat again, and I broke both front body posts. (6-7 ft air, so it's bound to happen)

yeah, i have only reallyran the truck good 3 times (got it JUST as it was about to start winter here in ottawa, and havent had the right conditions to run it much since..)

the second time the truck diddnt work so well (needed to do a lot of fixes i diddnt see the first time)

and the third was light bashing on snowbanks



as I grow into the truck, I will probably attempt a flip. or in my case, a flop. haha

Flips in general are a good way to break stuff

should you land wrong, um, do front flips count???????? pulled off a SINGLE front flip with my 18MT (no power mods, just luck), and with my neighbors savy, was able to pull off a SINGLE backflip

this video takes the trophy for back flip champion. in my opinion. so sick. he has a few others with some sick air, front flips and over all cool stuff. some skilled driving as well.

I've done single backflips lots, but have yet to pull off a front flip [:@], or even find a ramp big enough to try a double...

Of my Savage, LST2 and Muggy, I think the Muggy is the best jumper, and the most likely to pull a double.. A double and a big fat stylish front are my RC new year's resolutions...

the 2.5 chassis Revo is the backflip kind, put a high powered motor in 1 of them and there insane, the short wheelbase just keeps that thing spinning at a rediclous speed lol

I have only landed a double with my RC18 , have done singles with my JATO . Dont really try it with my monsters cause its on a track and the jump is not really made to throw the truck vertical like a stunt ramp .

nice pics patrick. Like you, I want to start pulling off front flips. Huge, laid out front flips look cool.. I've only landed one, and it was a 'accident'.

zud00, funny how we are both airmaxx fanboys. this spring you need to make it back up again and throw down a huge bash session. bring plenty of spare parts...heheheh

Airmaxx23 has the same set-up as me(motor/truck) and I am yet to pull off a triple backflip... Yes airmaxx is a god when it comes to bashing vids.
