That's a friends truck. If you decide to get that body, I would shoe goo the heck out of it. His first time out he split the body (top of rear fender where it meets the bed, all the way up to the back of the cab).

Well it's working your esc, potentially in a bad way when just sitting still. This trim doesn't have to be left forward all the time, just when you want... go up on the stand dail in what trim you already figured out you needed and start the race. This won't hurt any ESC, but if you have push control use it... it doesn't work the same but it is close and you can leave it on all the time. I only race, so I'm not worried about it.. I pick my car up walk it to the track turn it on toss it down walk up the steps and start racing. When the race is over I shut it off and toss it on the table. There is no idle time in my case.

So I agree if you have push control use it, expecially if you like the way it feels.

Just wondering? Not being a smartass. Are you staying on the power @ the take off lip of the jump? Also, if the nose starts to dive did you try and hit the throttle? If you peg the gas, the gyroscopic force of the tires spinning, usually will bring the nose right up. Especially with a 4x4.

Brake or throttle, I would assume its the same for both.

This is not good advice according to TEKIN.
We all know sensor wires are frail and just like the frailness of Neu motor wires they should be tied down as not to get damaged.
Tekin includes it in your motor/esc combos for a reason, USE IT!

That can also happen if the painter scores the body to deep through the liquid mask...

I personally dont like pinching my sensor wires into the little hoop, So to alleviate any sensor wire woes, I run a Super Soft CRC wire and its never flinched once. Ran it all last year in my 1/8 and all this past winter in 1/10 TC. Imo the wire tekin includes along with almost every other ESC mfg, Is too Stiff and its only a matter of time till a wire breaks causing issues (1/8 especially)

Hmmm.... No but I don't see how a body could fall apart any other way on its first run. Or it could have been trimmed wrong around the rear. Lexan doesn't normally just split in two no mater how thin

As long as it is tied down is my main suggestion, however you do it is up to you.
But, to say the sensor wire stays in all by itself and not to see a need for a clip or tie-down of some sort is another thing all together (which was the reason for my 1st post on this).
Either way the clip that TEKIN includes works for me but I know what you mean by all these sensor wires being too stiff that causes the most problems.

I had a eRevo land on my SC10 and split my 09 Champ body at the cab first two laps out. Even more reason for me to hate Traxxas.
