I know this has already been posted but i just wanted to let all the people know that said it could not be done.....Were wrong!!!! I have built a "coaster" is my back yard out of PVC and 2x4's. c2c has been weight tested at 300lbs and goes approx. 12 mph! The total cost of the ride with tools was only $200 it only cost 20 dollars per 10ft that is 2 dolars per foot Duh! Right now it is very short but i will be adding on this weekend. The final plan calls for two banked turns and a bunny hop. Here is a link to the pictures of it! One picture shows the ride with its future paint job red rails whit track. The car will be enclosed in the coming weeks. http://community.webshots.com/user/phatboyslim68

Congratulations on having the patience and determination to work on a project like that. I would imagine it took a lot of learning by trial and error, but sometimes that is the best. Hope it's fun!

Yeah it did take a really long time And had to find the perfect placement of the wheels. I have already made 3 seperate cars. *** Edited 4/23/2005 12:09:20 PM UTC by The Elf***

How the heck are you going to cut grass efficently around that thing?
Lots of time using the weed-eater!

I am goin to remove the grass from under the ride and put mulch under it.

Nice, Nice job. For a first time job thats awsome and having nothing to relate to it's pretty good. Now I don't know if this will help but I think you should put wood at an angle to each support. Good luck with the rest and I would like to see it.
