So this is why TrackMania 2 died...

I really wish I had done this first, but jet's are impossible to get started with at this point. If you're late to the party, just have to put up with exploding constantly if you want to level up jets to a reasonable level. Still, it would be worth it if you came up with this strategy.

EDIT: also, BF3 is over. Please return to your trackmania 2 stations.
