    Somewhere between 40 and 60 mph. I've caught twice that much air with 3 other people in the car and not bottomed out. When they say the suspension is stiff, they mean it. You'd almost have to TRY to bottom it out.

    I don't jump often but no problems resulting from it. All but one have been little jumps like that.

    How about having someone stand by the road and video tape you jumping? That way you can see how far you go.

    I jump just before the intersection and land just after the far side of it. And don't worry...maybe 2-3 weeks and there'll be a small compilation of jumps with lots of different angles. Probably mostly different ways through that intersection, with a spotter/cameraman to make sure it's safe, of course.

    If I find where my big jump was, I'll take a hard look at it and try low speeds to see how rough it is...don't wanna break the car or anything. Hopefully, it's smooth...when I caught air on it, I got several feet....loooong jump, unintentional then.

    No worries...nothing high speed here. I think the fastest I've ever gone into a jump was 60 mph...and I didn't mean to then. This road and others like it are common enough that I have the hang of it. A small jump is no big deal to me but if it's intentional and especially if it's on camera, I use a spotter to make sure it's safe. No reason to risk anyone else.

    If someone wants to "out-do" me, they can go right ahead, but I would hope they take the precautions I do, if not more.

    Anyways...thanks for trying out the poorly lit video. Better to come later.

    Done that...4 people in the car. Got SERIOUS air. Jumped, see sky...seem to float, see ground, land hard but broke nothing.
