Default Air Response

What would i need to adjust on my controller to do this? An example of what i mean would be pressing the brakes to put the car nose down. Its not doing it fast enough. So what do i adjust?

I am by no means a pro driver or anything but I have found the best way to get the car to jump nose down is to let off the throttle just before the top of the jump-as for adjusting in the air you need more brakes but you have to consider how it will effect you on other areas of the track and decide if you want to make the change or not.
Hope that helps

If you come off the lip in bad shape there may not be enough brake in the world to correct the issue which is what I'm guessing is happening. If your pick up the car, give it gas and hit the brakes and the tires stop almost immediately you have enough brake. I rarely leave a jump on power.

buggy is harder to control in the air compared to truggy thanks to smaller wheels.

practice, practice, practice.

however nose down is easy on buggy compared to nose up.

you have to adjust your budget to get a faster throttle servo

Im sure my throttle servo is plenty fast. Its a Hitec5985. And im not talking about coming off a jump. I see guys jump and is the arent going to land smoothly they press the brakes and the nose goes down pretty quick so that they land smoothly

How is your brake bias set up on the linkage? Sometimes that helps if mine is not reacting in the air the way I want it to.

They have that control because they are coming of the jump close to neutral; if you arent able to do the same it's because you're coming off the jump with too much throttle; you dont have to believe if you dont want to...

yup i let go right at the front wheels leave any jump helps the car stay level in mid air i also add panic throttle in too when its a flat landing at mid air right before she comes down burp the throttle clear it out and land flat.

with my eight i just go almost full throttle to hit the biggest double, thats so i can downside it ,now sometimes i can get to exited and go full throttle and i
kind of overclear the jump ,as for the brakes il tell u want only hit the brakes a little not much if u really want to downside it ,as for the letting off a little when you appoache the top of the jump it depends on the kind of jump it is cause the jump at my track its kind of hard to do that u really have to slowly gain speed and point and say in it ,i just say in the throttle it seems like at least with the eight if u let off ot defiely likes to go nose up

if you let off it goes nose up? something is wrong with that if you let off the car should nose down a bit or stay flat

sounds to me like maybe the idle is way to high or something. That is the only time I have seen buggy's have trouble keeping the nose down. I agree though the best adjustment though is probably more practice and jump timing.

Default nose down

i would say PRACTICE , honestly i dont use brakes unless if im going to hit something like others cars pipe & etc.,remember when you jump doesnt matter if its single ,double,triple, quads you will let go the trigger (da throttle so that it will neutral position) that way you can see your truck will nose down ,but if your finger still on the throttle you will end up the rear end of the truck hitting the ground or it will not land flat ,so if your new to this hobby ,just like me try to practice more & also start using the BACKSIDE JUMP,that way you dont brake your truck ,i see peeps over shoot the jumps they land perfectly flat but damn i can hear the chassis slapping the ground & end-up replacing parts ............hope it helps

It sounds like you are coming off the jump wide throttle and with that the nose is pointed towards the moon, this will by far make it less responsive when hitting the break, second, adjust your front break alittle, when you hit the breaks in the air your wheels should come to a stop, the faster they stop the faster your nose will come down, but you are going to have more stopping power on the ground as well so you will have to account for that.,

Its just something that you will have to figure out but setting up and PRACTICING
