    Biggest Slash Jump Ever?

    Anyone interested in seeing if their Slash can fly?? I just found this location a few days ago and I can't stop thinking about launching my MTSlash off the ramp at 60mph...haha. Strength in numbers is always nice. Let me know if you're interested. This is in Orange County...


    The small yellow arrows show the ramp. It's a smooth transition from flat to 3.5-4 ft. Here's another pic of the ramp.

    I am going to guess flood water retention.

    That would be a sick jump, but i do not think your car would be in one piece after it lands.
    With great brushless comes great responsibility.

    If you got that on video, it would still be worth it!

    Yeah it's for flood water retention...

    The ramp is plenty big to launch the truck who knows how far. If I do it, I'll for sure get some video footage. As long as it lands on the tires, I don't think anything will break...

    If I still lived in temecula I'd hit that jump with you but I'm in sandiego now so that's a far drive to break something forsure haha, hope you get to jump it and post a good vid that would be sweet to watch, even if you land on your tires I see bent pins, snapped hub/bearing carriers and definitely bent shockshafts

    Good luck hope you don't break to much.
    Personally I'm more interested in faster lap time's and less breakage.

    Maybe try duct taping the body from one side, under the chassis, and onto the other side to help stop the air from getting under on the flight.

    Anyone ever watch the bridge jump on skate park pain?
    Those are some radical wild men.
    I think this thread might be better moved to a different forum tho.
    Maybe after you make the jump you can show us the video,and get opinions on the best repair options,lol.
    Go for the gusto!!
