Default Eight buggy flight controls

Wat up guys, I'm new to the forum. Just wondering if anyone is having problems controlling their buggies in the air. I had a race tonight and during I notice I had almost no brakes front or back. I think this may be my control problems. I know to tap the brakes to flatten out the car and stab the gas to bring up the nose. So anybody tell me do I have the problem located with brakes or is there some other parts that could cause these problems.

It's all brakes. If you don't have them then you SOL. All you have control of without brakes is your nose attitude. So I recommend getting the bracks sorted out.

you do need brakes to correct in the air still, but one thing i found out was if you have a adjustble wing mount all you do is move the wing back more i found out it helps a lot when jumping defietly seems to land more even.

now this was a high downforce wing i was using though.

A lot of people seem to look this over. Be sure to dress your brakes as part of your regular maintenance if you wish to have consistent, predictable braking.
