mine most insane thing was to build a 4ft ramp out of card board, I got tons of air but the ramp colpsed uder it right about when it left the ramp which some how made it flip over and aver and I broke a gear and my body, oh ya one time I jumped over two of my friends laying down long ways off only a one foot bike ramp, and made it over landing perfectly on the landing ramp

sorry, I sneezed and somehow sent that one, I wish I could build a better ramp but I took apart all of these boxes and made a very sad excuse for a ramp but I do have a 6 inch dirt ramp on this oval I raked out in my backyard that I get about 4'6" feet off of

I wish I could do the insane stunts mentioned above, but my truck would burst into 5 million pieces...although it did make it through jumping 4 steps and repeadidly jumping 3-4 feet up and landing in all sorts of not good angles.

why can't you? it takes nothing to do a huge jump.. just a good car.. the stunts are more difficult.. tech driving as I like to call it

I took my B4 down to the local skatepark, got some HUGE airs, but beware... set the car up as stiff as ya can, and DO NOT go without a camera.... I was there about 5 days in a row... broke a shock tower... a rear turnbuckle... and finally the last two days, a motor each day... shattered the magnets in both of 'em. But the air was really cool... wish I had taken a cam tho... it was crazy!! The biggest thing I did was a transition from a small pool into the larger one... prob'ly 25 feet in the air from the lip of the pool, ya just gotta make sure you get the nose pointed down and land on the transitionm in the secong pool. (I leveled the car and landed FLAT in the bottom of the pool) POW!!
Anyway I have promised the wife I wouldn't go back. But I fight the urge everyday EVEN after the breaks!! It's THAT good!! LOL

you just have to learn how to drive skateparks.. I drive them a couple times a week when I go ride.... haven't broken my xxx in about 20 battery packs or more.. I should take a picture of how I setup my xxx.. it's my ramp car.. I do not race it
