Ok playas, the main reason why I created this thread is to get some recommendations on what setups I can use (mainly shock setups) to start jumping with one candidate from my RC's (my Lx comp Buggy, or possibly XXX-NT I just picked up)

So what recommendations would one of you make?

Joey always builds in some insane Grand canyon type jumps! The local hobby shops love when he comes to town and builds a layout

So what recommendations would one of you make?
The LX Comp is one of Ofna's cheapest buggies. It has potmetal front hubs. These will break the 1st time you land front end 1st. Jumping a 1/10 stadium truck is done by very few people. They are somewhat fragile when it comes to "going big".

This isn't the world's biggest jump, but it's taken by everyone lap after lap for 45 minutes.
