Make sure you dont give it throttle the whole timeduring the jump/ in the air.Let off the throttle at the begining of the jump and only give it gas to balance and stay even for a clean landing.

It's great that you're getting around the rest of the track well, at least!!!! When you roll up to the jump, and you think you have enough speed to clear it, give it a quick burst of throttle to pop it over the jump. If it starts "nosing down", just give it a little throttle, just enough to balance it, and try to land it as flat as possible. It is even ok to land a little more "nose down", than "tail down" because especially with 1/8th scale buggies, it scrubs off a little too much speed.

Right. Just give it enough to clear the jump, and then use throttle and brakes a little bit in the air to level it out. If you are trying to jump a double:

LIKE THIS........../\/\...............

Then when you get up to the jump, give it a quick tap of throttle, and tap the brakes a little bit in the air so the nose comes down first, and the rear end lands on the lower part of the incline. Otherwise, just try to keep it level.

Yes, see since you've been throttling in the air that brings the rear end up a lot, causing you to nose dive all the time.If you use heavy throttle through the air/entire jump, it's a good way to trip a spur gear or two.Hope this helps.

Correct. If you watch the real good guys, you can see how they don't get on the throttle again after leaving the jump (except for alt. corrections) until the wheels are back in contact with the ground. Easiest to see that watching 1/8 scale buggies. If you watch any motorcross you can really see it. If your tires are already spinning when they hit the ground they probably will break traction and you'll lose some momentum.

EXACTLY!!!!! You will know when you do this, because you'll hear a nasty smack, you'll slow down considerably, and every once in a while, you'll hear the wonderful sound of a stripped spur gear.....
