Ugh all I need is one stunt jump and I can't do it

It's the one in the canal near Franklin's garage where you have to jump over 3 lanes of traffic and into a parking lot.

I grab my Carbon RS and upgrade the engine to max speed and I keep coming up short.

It's frustrating.

Derp that is a bike isn't it... Grab a modded adder maybe then, I found that for some of the jumps a car worked better even though you would expect the bike to always be superior (pier jump 6 comes to mind...)

I have no idea why but the only way I could do that jump was if I pulled back on the stick just before the jump and did a back flip over the highway. It seemed like I almost went double the distance.

If you let go of the accelerator when you hit the jump you go a further distance.

I agree with Organic Meatbag, doing a backflip definitely makes you go further. I've done this jump on a fully modded Bati 801 and have overshot the helipad and landed in the water when pulling a backflip!

Yes, some of them are immensely frustrating. A lot of the ones on Elysian Island, for instance, are maddening. On the bright side, after that is the spaceship parts, I'm guessing. They're much, much easier. Make sure you use the Buzzard to get at the one on the bridge strut.

The 3 at the port were also problematic and I was so relieved when they were done.

You have to land on the roof and I either wasn't going fast enough or I would overshoot into the water.

But this last one in the canal is giving me a headache.

How did you end up doing that one on the roof?

That is the one I am stuck on right now!
