Default truck frontflips

How do i stop my truck from frontflipping. Is there anything I can do with the throttle? Its very annoying to have to flip my truck back over everytime i jump.

thanks

Do you hit the brakes while in the air? Basic rule of thumb, hit the throttle...front comes up. Hit the brakes front comes down. You might be hitting the jump wrong also. Make sure there isn't a lip on the jump that is making your back wheels get caught on and sending it into the death rolls. Anyone else agree that's why, or could be why? Thats just my $0.02.

I dont have any brakes. the company sent me the wrong linkages so I had to cut the brake linkage to use the throttle. when I get home I will try to stay on the throttle. I dont hit it in the air, so that might be my problem.

as long as you dont land full throttle , which is VERY hard on the whole car/truck, you can use the throttle in the air.

also check some weight distribution, probably not the cause but could be part of it.

OR keep the wheels on the ground,

tighten your front shocks... it prevents nosediveing

adjust your suspension and weight plays a big factor in it alos hiting the throttle is a good thing in the air helps to level it out

If you're getting Huge air, only one word. Corrections!! Correct when the front end drops, gas it! Vice Verse..
