thanks for the help guys.
right at the top of the ramp let off the gas (yes OFF). I've done it for a while and it seems to push the buggy off the top of the ramp. When i hold it wide open up and off the ramp it goes farther (but lower), if i let off just at the top, it pops it up in the air so i can clear farther jumps. try it. If it don't work, try something different.

Hey, that's a secret. You can't tell eveyone that! It takes practice but it sure does help on the longer bigger jumps.
