I agree. Criterion probably made the jumps so limited so as to make sure that the game's graphics engine does not get overwhelmed...having to render all of Paradise City when one flies off a huge jump... At least the Ski Jump is decent... No split ramp, though :( .

You just need to work out the right spot. I've got a 1411 off the top of one building so far.

I've managed 1331 at the same location. Pretty clear that a lot more is possible but I don't think it will compare to the dam.

On Maguire (is that the long road along Perren's Point?) at the switchbacks, there is a ramp that has a tree just off to the right. If you can jump off the ramp just right and clip the tree, you can get a pretty good flat spin going. It isn't a high ramp, so it probably wouldn't be as big a spin as at Rockridge on the mainland.

I only did it once during a stunt run; would have counted if I didn't land on a bus--insta-crash. I was spinning pretty good in the Dust Storm Superturbo, but I didn't get a glimpse at the counter.


As for barrel rolling, like everyone said, there really isn't a split ramp with a good run up. Closest thing, I think, is the mega jump next to the Ski Jump. I never got a clean landing off the split ramp there, though; haven't tried it but a couple times, however.

I got a x4 off the left crane ramp off the Holness with the Superturbo. I keep trying to do it with the 88 Special, but it keeps pulling to the right when landing on the crane plank.

I know exactly the tree you are referring to - I hit it by accident during a race. Definately some potential there but, as you say, it's lacking height. There are some clippable spots in the construction areas. Hopefully someone will find "the spot" for spinning before too long.

Yeah i got a 5x barrel roll with the XHR off that very jump. As for the split ramp next to the ski jump, well, you'll probably get a really fast barrel roll, but unfortunatly the jump just isn't big enough.

the top of the spiral building. clip the split ramp like you would in the airfield.
my highest is something like 1774 and I can easily get 1500 every time. and that's with a considerably slow spin. get a spin that would normally get you 1700 in the airfield off of that ramp and you'll probably near the 3000 mark.

also, both of the "convential" split ramps work.

and clipping any of the posts on the spiral towards the top with a toy car can also get 1500+


for barrel rolls, the toy 88 can easily get 4 off of the super jump at the top of the construction site, and gets really close to 5 almost every time, just a few hits and you should gt it.

I'm sure you could clip the inner or outer edges of the doughnut and pull a mad spin.

if you mean the 2nd part to the mega jump, i did that and got 1 barrell roll so i thought the amount of airtime culd lead to a few more if i didn't pull out. Managed it during a road rage i got a verticle takedown when i landed it's probably the best one i've ever scored in this game.
