my buggy jumps the best but you didnt ask that any buggy can be made to jump well big bores make a difference springs, oil weight. you need to find a balance or it will drive like crap but jump and land awsome..

ok so forget what buggy but is it true that whem it comes to big air you want less flex in the chassis and generally speaking with spring and fliud options the same a 18 mm big bore will be better then a 15 mm big bore.

well if your planning on jumping over your house, you dont want a tuned flex chassis for bashing, as far as shocks 18mm and 15mm will both do the same job with differnt weight shock oil.

the benefit is more oil in the shock which will take a longer time to break down hence you get a more consistent shock over long mains..

thats the main benefit

ok so then it only makes sense that if you are hitting alot jumps you would want a bigger bore so the oil doesnt break down , right?? one thing i always notice is that my oil tends to break down faster when i am at a track with big jumps or at least thats what i have always figured the cause was
