We've all done a bit of it now and then, but how many of us have video's?

Here's one I ran across on google, it's not me:

There was a video posted a long time ago with an austrailian EA82 wagon that was apparently fitted with a WRX engine. It must have been at least 10 feet off the ground. Someone who saw it first hand said the landing was so hard it buckled the roof.

http://www.ultimates...=jump video aus

There's a video link in there from Junkie..

http://www.funonwhee...o/fossvidhi.mpg

Later in the post they mention that it crumpled the passenger side of the car, pushed the strut towers up into the hood, ripped the tranny cross-meber out of the frame, and bent the rear diff hanger.... probably more. The car was retired obviously... and the driver was real stiff for a while... lol

Over 2 meters of air.

I tried to jump my wagon today on the street, the rear end caught the most air, and the passenger side rear dipped and bounced alot cuz I need to put a shock in there.

some people carry spare axles,i had a trans...(i had to empty out the storage unit an no place to put it)finally got it out last week.

i normally don't try jumping but i figured i'd test my shocks and see if by chance i'd get air..
