Best/biggest jumps

Whats the best/biggest jump or gap you guys have ever done. I've never tried one on a BMX, I mostly mountain bike, hence the name.

On the jump I was just working on today, I can get some pretty good air. It's maybe 1.5 feet high, you go like 3 feet up and 6 or 7 feet across.

I don't have the confidence to do a table top or anything in mid-air yet.. I've hit it maybe 10 times today, so maybe sometime tommorrow I'll try a trick.

I tried about 1340873496 times(aproximatly) to clear this 8 foot tall 15 foot gap dirt jump. Every time I would go up and I would think I was going to make it, but I would case it every time. The bigest problem was that the run-up was horible.

Why...a lot of the mountain biking being done relates to bmx style.
