try a little more preload spacer on the shocks in the rear. That might take care of the problem.

Drop down to the next lowest rate spring in the rear and see if it helps. You are going to have to learn to control the buggy in the air using the throttle. When jumping hitting the brakes or letting off the throttle makes the nose dive. More throttle makes the nose raise. Keeping the throttle steady usually makes the buggy jump level.

Also make sure your breaks are not hanging up at all, even a little bit. One other thing that might help is more front droop or less rear.

This is usually a function of driving style (or lack thereof...lol)

try letting of the throttle before getting to the lip of the jump...the theory is to preload the shocks and unload them at the top of the jump....seems more like the rear is kicking up rather the the front nose diving...

I agree just give it some throttle right before the top of the jump, or go full throttle while in the air for a split second. I aslo agree add more rear preload

Could also have too fast of rear rebound. Make sure the front suspension arms aren't bound up from dirt. Heck, check the rear as well. But, if the rear shock oil is too light or low on oil, your rebound could be too quick.

bozz, i add inserts(preload) in the rear shocks,adjusted my front and rear droop to max but balanced,changed my rear shock oil from 30 to 35, and squeezed the throttle trigger "abit more",,,at the same time controlling the car while in the air. All in all i just combined all the good tips i got since i started asking for help. Really it made a big difference yesterday and Saturday at the track. thanx for all!!
