Default So how many of you "Ninjas" actually JUMP your Rc's?

Does it live 35 feet in the air?

This sounds like a thread that should be in the Monster Truck section....I don't know of too many folks who will throw their buggy or truggy 35 feet in the air on purpose. Unless of course, they're going for a world record or something.

Now, my Monster Truck....that's another story. Those things are pretty much made for huge air.

By the way, the half broken wing, and "plumbers butt" on the guy driving really add to the video.

lol Was being sarcastic about the 35 feet jumps. But why no jump Buggy? Buggies are insects, I'm sure their more than capable of flying.

It's all good....

I don't bash with my truggy. It's reserved for track purposes only....bashing is what my modified T-Maxx is for.

One of those where you have to commit the whole way with no hesitation.

Here is the all time classic (older one). Josh Cyrul and the house jump!

Many Kyoshos were sold based off of this video, and he drove it away!
