Hahaha Nice vids dude. Those guys dont mind you jumping back there? I BMX too but our trails arent that open so it's a pain when kids come down to play around. They get in the way more than anything. But that's cool.

I believe it's the 1.0 truggy.

@joeyhatch11 - they don't mind, I used to move some dirt around back there about 10 years ago when I still rode.

Nice dude. Let us know when you get another one shot. Some of those jumps in the back look interesting. I think the Truggy can handle it. Hahahaha

Nice jumps! amazing vid quality! Next vid can you please zoom out a little so that the buggy/truggy is in the center of the scene. Still great job!!!

How do you keep the buggy from nose diving or landing on its wing? whenever I jump most of the time it either lands on its nose or its butt.

When jumping if the front is pointed down give it gas, if the front is pointed up tap the brakes.............. I'm still new to RC's but I've been reading up on jumping and been practicing so this does help when doing so in a jump........

Heres a good instruc. vid:

the title of the thread should be "3 vids of me kicking the S$$T out of 3 great 1/8 scale cars". those cars are race cars not "how far will these jump cars". its like watching a corvette off roading. Just my .02

Cool! nice vids I'll practice that as soon as the weather allows

@tonydig: how do you expect anyone to jump their car on a track if they don't practice earlier on? and these cars ARE meant for off roading and jumping, unlike your corvette (excuse of a race car) off roading.
