Well, i built this jump so i could get better at jumping, the tranny is wayyyyyy to close, you land like 4 ft away from the tranny, anyhow i just thought i would post a few pics ;)

BTW i notice when i resize pics w/ paint the qulity gets screwed up, what else do u guys use to resize pics?

This is a very easy question. Its hard when your building doubles to know how close or far to put the tranny so heres my suggestion. When I build a jump I always make the tranny long maybe about 10ft long or less. This allows me to jump as far out as I want. I like to try to put the tranny as far away from the jump ( this helps in prove skills) but not to far away just enough that I know I can hit it if I try hard,if you under shoot then get some dirt and add to the back of the tranny until you are were you know you can hit it.

Nice. Looks like youre progressing along fine. I think the tranny could be longer/further from the lip.

Still rockin the reflectors I see?

I went back to that jump today only i find it trampled and knocked over, this is the 4th time ive had to rebuild it, so...i found i giant curved piece of cement and burried it under the lip along w/ a diaongally sawed off tree stump for the landing. anyhow i made the landing like 2 feet further away from the jump but its still too close.

Oh yeah, and the refelctors, they will never come off , they pimp out me rims :cool: .....like chrome............only uglier :D

sorry got to correct it.

the tranny is the transition from the ground to the lip also known as the curve or in-between space.

what you aer reffering to is the landing. the tranny is part of the landing.

sorry, had to do it.

other than that, looks like a good pratice jump.
Corbin, that was lame. :rolleyes:

I always referred to what you're talking about as a "GAP" and the landing has always been called the "tranny" or "transition". Transition as in the root word transit, which has no descriptive properties of "space".
Sorry. Had to say it.

you correct. passage from one state, stage, subject, or place to another. between the two piles is the gap but what i was refferring to was this:

you see you go from the ground and transitiion via the tranny to the lip and vise versa on the landing.

it's ok though, you didn't know.
