Throphy trucks are amazing, so much fun to be in one, I raced 1400 series trucks and just learning how to load the suspension going into turns was super fun. Check out Ultra 4 and ultralight racing too it’s super fun to watch also

Those landings look so sickkk! But I suspect these don’t even weigh half as much as our Jeeps do!

One one landing you can see where the driver loaded the suspension wrong. He brakes before hitting the ramp and transferred too much weight forward the truck came down hard on the front. The same dynamics apply to our everyday driving, even at safe and mundane speeds for example, brake hard before a speed bump and it will hit a lot harder due the the front suspension loading prior to impact. Load the front suspension prior to making a hard turn and the vehicle will handle better, as long as you don’t oversteer it.
