    Back Flips

    Do you need a huge ramp for a backflip, od is it more of a throttle thing?
    Every battle has it's casualties, so pick up your teeth and go home. A crash isnt a crash unless theres 30 foot of shrapnel......

    not necessarily a huge ramp, just one with a steep incline and give it some throttle right before you go off the top of it. check out the video of teamOTG made jumping their jato and savage

    There's basically nothing to it... Just hold full throttle till the car completes it's revolution and let go. Remember that if you choke and decide to abort halfway, your car WILL suffer more damage than if you follow though.

    And you do need a ramp with some "pop". a flat piece of wood lying on a chair ain't gonna do it.. The jump needs some curve.
