Looks awesome, did you break anything?
What batteries are you running?

Default reply to above

Hi there iwas running 2s lipo 4000 25c x2 in those videos but have some 2s 5000 35c x2, 3s 5000 35c x2 on the way for more action videos.

I only broke one lower front arm and one upper front arm coming out the front of the concrete bowl at speed, 35 feet into concrete some thing had to give, but over all changed the parts out and back to bashing in 10 minutes.

Awsome place to play with a truck the skate park and the 360 degree bowl was fantastic fun for me and the kids watching on.

NOTE TO ALL SAVAGE FLUX OWNERS : make sure you get some velcro straps for the battery boxes as the rubber clips come clean off during hard bashing and jumping, i learnt the hard way when one lipo hard case came clean out of the truck and split the casing which is ok but in a heat shrink bandage now, it pulled clean out of the deans plug thank god.

Default back flips

It was harder to control it in the air with a brushless motor, the backflips are a given with the flux, when you hit the brakes the nose dives hard so i was just getting some control over it in the air

looks like you had too much speed going to do a backflip... you gotta save rpms for the air..

next time roll up about half throttle and then when your just off the lip peg it... it will come right around on your..

if you hit the jump at close to full throttle you wont have enough rpms left to get he truck rotating.
