The suspension on this thing is quite fun to watch. I did some tweaks to the suspension set up and it handles small bumps like a dream as well as larger jumps. I've seen some complaining about nose dives and to be honest I only experience them when I floor it off of a short, steep take off. I've seen videos of real class 1 buggies and even trophy trucks nose diving during races. If you ask me, this thing handles very realistically for what it's supposed to be. You can even control your throttle on the take off of a jump in a way that prevents a good amount of nose diving. Not really meant to be flung off of massive jumps at full speed.
