ok 4 feet is 4 feet.... its not scaled if you are driving a 1/18 or 1/10.... its not like they drive in a scaled world... gravity is still 9.8m/s/s (9.8m per second/per second) even if you are driving a scaled RC.

But put it this way, if you are bottoming out and your shocks are all filled its not a bad thing.. its better to bottem out then put all that stress on on the suspention, like i had my 1/8 buggy set to bottom out because with 20+ foot airs not bottoming out would result in broken axels all over the place. And yes i flew my buggy over 20 feet. you want proof ---->
