Default how to do great jumps?

Just wanted to know how people do all these cool jumps..sure you can drive off a jump but how are people doing flips or while in air the truck moves forward, are you pulling throttle at certain time and stuff or can someone explain how you do these awsome jumps? I want to impress my buds! haha

first of all get a big jump. then full throllte makes your car tip torwards the back then the brakes make it tip forwad so full brakes then fronts flip the full throttle = a backflip

Altering the truck with the brakes and the throttle is known as a gyro. Huge impacts on the gyro are tire mass and drive wheels. a 2WD truck won't have the same control as a 4WD truck in the air. One last thing before you jump, just as the truck hits the ground, let off the throttle. Trust me, your drivetrain will thank you.

There is a cool movie of a guy who jumped his house with a 1/8 scale buggie. It's on www.BeatYourTruck.com. If I find it I will post the direct link.
