    Dude that is quality, good control in the air to get it landing nicely. Viper I also have a Savage that I have to get abusing, mine is just new and not fully broken in yet, but I know of a disused slate quarry near me... ;)

    Call me a noob but how do you control it in the air :eek: Does it have weights in it or something?

    You control cars in the air with the spinning of the wheels. If you spin them faster it makes the front of the car rise up, then normally cars are weighted slightly forward so when the wheels are not turning the front drops.

    Edit - Very good vid there! Good control in the air i must say.

    Really good controll there. Nice video.

    Need to dust off my hyper 7 8 port thingy, but can start it until I get a new starter box :(

    As has been said you control the car with the wheels - give it some gas and the front goes up, give it some breaks and the front goes down. You can also steer in the air.

    Hmm don't really fancy changing the crank etc, I might just see if I can find one on the auction site. Not sure wich ones are compatible.

    Edit: Ouch about £40 for a hyper 7 one on auction site! :(
