I enjoy catching up on some youtube videos at times and seeing other parts of the country people are off-roading at. I found this 4LOW BC channel this evening. In this video at the 8:50 point, would the buggy have not nearly flopped over if it had more up travel?

Seems as if this buggy has 14-16” travel struts but maybe 4-5” of up travel.

I've only watched the two points mentioned in the video, but it seems like he doesn't seem to have much travel, up or down, for a buggy. Flipping over I think could have been avoided regardless with better line choice and going slower. I think he would need a LOT of rear flex to keep from tipping on that rock, particularly with how fast he came off the tree.
