I built a dirt ramp in my back yard about 3 feet high but I went off the ramp at a bad angle and hit a tree which broke my camber link and bent the king pin on my front right wheel... but I did get 15 or 20 feet high

I made 2 different ramps out of snow.

The first was on my driveway, about 12" to the center of the peak and 12" high. got about 4 feet in the air and did a few cart wheels and blew a shock

the other was about 18" long and 6" high, I blew a show on that too.

nearby my house i have a bunch of places to jump. These motorcycle jumps called Bearcat (off of Bearcat lane ) But anyways, they have this GIGANTIC maybe 6 foot jump out there.... actually last time i went with my neighbor with his Hyper 7 PCR and I had my T3(the motor was whack, it wasn't running good at all...) and this jump.... well...... it wasn't pretty... but Jarod(my neighbor) launched his Hyper off this jump.... damn it HAD to be about 20-25 feet in the air and went probably..... well it landed on the last landing of the rhythm section... so it must have gone a good 30 feet.... IT WAS AMAZING

Lately the only thing I've done (only running nitro because my electrics are all in need of something...) was jump off a 3 foot jump that launched down a hill and bent my front right axle and broke a turnbuckle....

I've been running with a bent dogbone for nearly 2 gallons now, bent it during break in, and still haven't replaced it.

I wish there was some good place to jump my truck(and my friends) around where I live.

and buggies kick ass!

Buggies DO kick ass! I really want a Hyper 7 PCR but i can't afford one of those to save my life!

Also my cousin has an Emaxx with dual Hacker C50's... we took that to his school and you can walk up a ramp and theres the roof of the bottom story. simply step over a 2 foot wall and you're on the roof! well anyways there's about a 50' run towards the end of the roof, and theres a small lip at the end.... WOW it got soo high, like 30 feet in the air and we got it to land perfectly! it bottomed out with the powerstroke suspension(got a prototype set awhile back, my uncle was doing somthing at the Pro-Line hq)

his emaxx is awesome, he copied the Hacker body that is in the Hacker brushless ad in RCCA...

I didn't mean to but I set part of my tl-01 on fire, what I think happened was on a turn the batt's wires hit the ground and starte touching because I saw some smoke came from under the car but I thought it was from the tires considering that I did a full throttle 180 turn at about 45mph, My body has a huge hunk that was burnt up and by batt lost the connector completely. It all the sudden on the straight lit on fire so I put it on the side walk and it sowly smoldered out and so I'm going to get a connector

a guy at our local track had hit batts and everything kindof rigged.. like taped together with masking tape and etc.... one night while racing the e-maxx which all this stuff is rigged.. it went into a ball of flames.. it was the highlite of my week.. it was burning up and he still drove for a half lap and finally stopped and had a mini blaze going on.. it was crazy
