Default Biggest air/longest jump

Ok lets have a new contest. Biggest air/longest jump.
April fools day the voting can start.

I also want this to be open to the dealers also. I might have something good but will have to say bye bye to the redcat lol.

I'd say no, because if someone is willing to destroy their vehicle, they should have just as much rights as others who land on their wheels

Well than you should make classas becouse pepole with tornados will be at the back of the pack as the pepole with avalanches will have the biggest jumps... so you should make classes.... tornado class, Volcano class, tsunami class, and on and on! so it is more even

Agreed, there is going to be some HUGE advantages for some people, Making some more categories/classes would be a perfect idea, Then just split the prizes up..example.. Biggest air for Tornado: (so and so)..Longest jump for Valcano: (so and so)...Unless these contest are more directed towards and advertisement point of view..as in.. "Hey!, Look how much of a beating this thing can take!"..If thats the case then....ya....... And also, I've been trying to say do a picture contest for the people who don't own a video camera, And please don't say "Just got out and buy one, there only 170$"... If we had the money to get one, Don't you think we would have already? some people just aren't as fortunate to have all the toys and gadgets. I am not in anyway bashing anyone here or these contest that are set up for us, They are a great idea! Gets the Redcat name out there more, TONS of fun and just down-rite entertaining!..Just would like to see these things thought thru a bit more. My 2 cents

no classes. 4 less shocks means harder impact not shorter jumps. Every car has a chance at breaking somehow and i doubt the winner is going to be someone who jumps 10 feet. If the weather was better id do this contest cause it sounds awesome and id launch my tornado off a bmx track and win this contest. Plus i think with the prize breaking one thing will be worth it

Im not calling you a liar but that seems kind iffy cause i used to jump my tornado of a 4 foot jump and it would fly for about 15-20 feet and only broke rear hub carrier

heres proof http://youtube.com/watch?v=eNviw_7isjg Just keep the volume down cause the dogs will drive you nuts
