I 've already seen all his vids , I love this guy. inspiring skills !

proline show their 2wd monster truck make a backflip in their vid, so its possible

actually, backflips are easy : it's all a matter of power ! I do them with a 1/8 buggy

frontflip are more tricky ! for them you need more skill. But I love them ! love the silence during the rotation. With a strong brake and good timing, you have a fast rotation : this lets you some time to do small corrections before landing !

cool! I am going to check out more flipping stuff. I just drive 2wd buggy, mostly at a indoor track, but have a few ramps for our front yard - good enough for some whips. looks like you need a good size ramp for the hang time... might have to make a bigger ramp, possibly get a stampede.

A 2wd setup as 4 gear mid motor can do them pretty easily. 3 gear mid or rear motor, you can try.
