I decided to go full rahtawd and work for the Charger. I've gotten most of the miles stuff checked off and am now working on the time trials.

EDIT: joeys video and muffins advice are the way to go

Drive off top of top notch. Easy

Just to note when you land flat like that, you lose momentum/speed. Hold W in mid air to aim down, get the right angle and you get a boost providing it isn't flat land.
Landing flat, high deceleration. Landing flat while boosting, slight.

Also boosting in mid air doesn't increase your speed or momentum so it's technically wasted boost, but even I'm prone to boosting in the air to regardless.

Just a tip.

check and check! top notch was an annoyance, but hawk hill and the right angle like you said, did the trick

one step closer!

I did the 720 spin on the first try with this, but failing at the 1080. I switched to my fastest boost roller and trying to bounce off that rock, but....

Edit: I keep landing on the rock below and cant seem to get enough boost to clear it. If I did, Id be able to complete a 1080

i did it! I did it by spinning left instead of right. It let me slowly veer to the left as I spun and clear those rocks.

You can do it right outside the fast travel point in San Francisco (the one that's under the broken bridge, don'tknow the name). There is a valley right next to it that usually have some dark matter emergencies in it and it has ramps all over it - can get more than 1080 easily if you jump in that valley.

Probably the easiest place to do it is the top of SF downtown.

It's kind of a fun easter egg as well.

Seconded. You can do a 3240 off this thing on a runner. :p
