I was wondering if some of yo do this differently, when going for a decent sized jump you know you can clear easily do you glide into the jump and then brapp the throttle comin all the way up to the top or do you gas it to the face and glide up it. I have seen many do different things but just want to see what everyone else does

It all depends...I kind of go between the two depending on the jump and the situation...usually I try to approach the jump as fast as possible and adjust as need be. if my speeds fine I just keep it steady all the way up the take-off, if I need to go faster to clear it I'll gas it more on the take-off, if I'm goin too fast I'll let off a bit, scrub a bit or whatever...there you have it

i prefer to gas it up the lip. i find myself (as terrible as it is) sometimes letting off a little bit before jumps just so i can gas it all the way up. im talkin track though when there is multiple jumps in a row.

if your trying to go really fast, and you have alot of speed up before the jump, then you should back off on it. even use your brakes.
sometimes ill do this, depening on what the landing ramp is like. in some cases its faster to just hold it wide open and hit it as fast as you can

for me, on the track it depends on the run up to the jump, if i dont have a very big run up i will gas it up the lip, but if i have a big run up or lots of speed i will basically roll off the lip

Like everyone has said so far, it all really depends. For me alot of the time its the run up to the jump, comming out of the corner and what not, if its a smaller jump i usually jump glide off of it, but if its a bigger jump i tend to gas it
