Default Tips for jumping jumps with steap faces

So they recently redesigned my local track and as it stands now the faces to all the jumps are very steap. I have not gotten to throw any laps down on it yet, but setup wise should I change anything? How about driving and approach to the face of the jump.

It looks like they are so steap that you'll bottom out if you approach to fast.

I hope to get some practice in friday, but was wondering if I should increase/decrease ride height, stiffer or softer shock oil, etc.

You should have a baseline setup for your local track. Try that and adjust accordingly.

You will not get much useful advice on here when you post no pictures of the track, what buggy/truggy you run, tires that work, etc. There is so much that goes into a setup, it's not like someone can come on here and go "oh, steep jumps, run setup x". Find something that works for you by making one small change at a time. And make sure you're running the right tires before you start turning wrenches.

Thanks. I usually run the Adam Drake Silverstate setup for my 8T 2.0. Tires I am thinking of running calibers and if not hooking up going with the Gridiron Mediums.

Sorry, but I didn't get pics.
