il will get that box than i was looking at, the rc8t champ editon but i want something easier and not so squirry to drive and why pay $500 for the rc8t kit when i can get the d8t kit, for much cheaper and it seems like its easy to set up also.

and it looks pretty good on the track from what i saw.

the one thing i dint see, though was in the manuel was a basic brake bias setting ?

yeah and were going bigger for jbrl because thats what the people like is to fly and haul a** so we give them that haha. I love the huge air because if you can control a buggy in the air and land right then you got a big advantage then just being fast.

im not the best lander sometimes, i can get perfect and than its so so lol.
truggys and buggys do jump, diffrent truggys tend to go nose up somewhat and buggys jump more level.

but i do like my truggy a lot better.

my track is on youtube, just put in hobby hut racing 2010 the one where the title says opening day b main thats the new layout.

i will check it out, all cars jump diffrent anything will fly level if you punch it at the lip and let off it will fly level so will a truggy unless u got wind, landing is tricky lick out table top u have to hit the brakes and nose it to land clean same with the jump on the right after the straight away.

yea the thing i do with the, truggy is just stay on the throttle to get the rpm rolling and hit the jump and sometimes i will land fine but a lot times it might overclear the jump, somewhat im still learing though with the truggy.

i dont use any drag brake by the way but, i did forget to mention my truggy jumped like that when i had a rich low end tune and it ran like crap.

yea the wind sucks when your jumping lol

im use to jumping like that with the buggy.

Yeah a couple guys we went club racing and traveled to revalation and they had some big jumps and it was windy if you wanted to clear the jump you stay punched but one ur tires left the ground you were slammed on the brakes cus the wind, lets just say wind and buggys dont mix and there was alot of broken buggies that day. Like when u were on the brakes the wind would still pitch ur nose up and u would always land hard on ur back wheels id not wheel it was wing and u really broke stuff when that happen.
