Talking Off Road Freestyle Jumping

I used to love RC when was a kid, finally got one for Christmas after a 20 year drought (Traxxas Bandit VXL), it's more fun than ever. For whatever reason BIG AIR jumps (and actually LANDING them) is what floats my boat. I was looking for videos on line and i'm not finding many. Know any good ones?

there has to be some on YOUTUBE. I even recall seeing a guy who jumps his 1/8 scale buggy over the single story garage side of his 2 story house starting from the road to the drive way and over to the back yard landing on all 4...lol!

unfortunately a bandit wont handle too many big air jumps.

I took my losi 8ight-E to a local bmx track to give it a thrashing a while back. it took 2 or 3 clean jumps off the first step up well over 25 feet. then I gave it the beans trying to downside the next jump AFTER the step up. 62 foot jump and I landed it on its roof shattering a gopro camera case. car was unscathed.

then I launched it out of the 9 foot tall asphalt berm like a ramp rather than a corner. 80 feet. the chassis flexed so hard when it landed that the rear drive shaft popped out of the center diff. nothing else broken.


get a 1/8 buggy or truggy for BIG air.

Couldn't get the youtube to embed, but I always loved Lutz massive back flips on the psycho nitro blast track.
