    run stiffer shocks with thicker oil, and learn how to drive.... there is some way to finesse it so it doesn't flip when airborn. i have no idea how to do it

    if your flipping backwards then drop the power but if the front drops then add power.

    suspension set up helps some. It's like jumping a dirt bike, if yer front end dives, give it some throttle, if yer rear end drops, hit the breaks, if you wanna do a back flip, keep it pinned thru the jump and in the air, and you will back flip

    Steady Throttle at jump face and adjust with brake and accel if needed. It takes some practice and some broken parts but it is all part of the fun right?

    Try not to hit the ground a full throttle - one sure way to shread your diff ;0)

    Throttle in mid-air = back flips
    Brake in mid-air = front flips

    hold it steady and the car will go pretty much the same trajectory that you left ramp on. When racing on a track, try to keep the throttle steady for smooth landings. Add throttle and the tires try to spin faster - no resistance from the ground causes the inertia to transfer to your, spinning the vehicle (backward if the tires are roll forward). Hit the brakes and your wheels suddenly stop spinning. The inertia is again transferred into the car b/c there isn't the resistance from the ground and the car will flip forward.

    Heavy tires will cause more inertia - so Dirt Hawgs will have your car doing 10 flips under full throttle where stock tires will have you clearing 1 or 2.
