well, i have some time to type now, so i can explain a little more. the event is hosted by Mike Fisk of FHF racing and this is the third year he has run it. the website www.rcxgames.com (http://www.rcxgames.com) pretty much explains it all.
i was in the long jump, and i have some pictures of my truck. you got 3 trys over menards mountain with an added lip on top, i made 2 attempts and my truck died for the third. the first time my truck was rich and didnt reach full rpm's so my backflip was lamded body side down, and i broke the rear body mounts. the second time i missed the lip and went off the side and lamded upside down, denting my roll bar. there will be a video out soon, but here are some pic's. enjoy.

and failing to land body up resulted in this

i also fried the slipped so i removed the spring, added washers, threadlocked the nut and washers, and super-glued the spur gear to the entire assembly. and it held!
