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.
looks fine from the outside right now
but the rear body mount broke clean off at the posts
another look
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!

overall it was an awesome way to finish friday.
