No, Im not on the throttle until I hit the ground. Everytime you jump and land you are in gear, so its no more stress on the tranny. Most of the time I dont use the clutch at all, but sometimes I do on accident...You also have to understand that I dont land on a straight away. On this track I have to start to turn out of the jump as soon as I land. Thats why I need it in 1st gear...If it were a straight shot after landing I would have enough momentum to stay in the gear I jumped in. ..Originally posted by M3zy6@Mar 2 2004, 12:53 AM
Lude, when you downshift, are you on the throttle when you land
or do you grab clutch? Seems like you'd be putting alot of stress
on the tranny if you land in gear.
B) feels pretty cool dosent it.....you dont have to use the clutch if you dont want to.....its works just the same.Originally posted by TrX450rKiD@Mar 3 2004, 06:51 PM
I started down-shifting the same way, by mistake.....
I was just ridin today and the down-shifting in mid-air really helps you get goin a few feet after you land. I hold in the clutch for a split-second when I land, then let go and nail the gas! Let er' rip!!
