As I type this I realize that my issues happen when I land on the downslope, but if I overshoot the landing and land of the flat or the run-up to the next jump I am fine. Any idea what that can be?
You race in Sudbury. I think there are some Team Durango Drivers in your area like Rick Endler. Does he also race at your local track. Perhaps you can walk over and ask him for some help. I am sure he would be happy to help you out. What are you running in terms of setup? Perhaps you can ask Rick for a setup sheet, or PM me for one.
