Luckily for me, both of Great America's do have ratchet lap bars, but they are some of the only ones that I know of that don't fall on you. In fact, Viper has a special shock on every lap bar that prevents it from falling. Someone cares over here!
One benefit of the G trains on the Beast would be the lack of headrests... Now how bout some nice lazy boy like MF trains! mmmm!
I personaly do not like the g-trains because of the type of lap bars that are used(my knees slam into the side of the bar). I think the best fit would be on the racer if they use them.
what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard.
Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it.
I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

Rob, always ready to argue :)
Billy, always ready too!
Well... I think the helix may be about 600 feet of track? So less than 10%, maybe?
The ride has so much straight track. Hey, I'm no fan of G-trains, but if it's gonna happen...
The ride doesn't have much 'twist' to it. I dunno...
Or does Intamin Fan have the 2 million handy to give them new PTC's?
Chuck, who hopes they remember the brake fins are on the left side of G trains and not on the right like PTC's.
Intamin Fan said:Over at Screamscape, someone posted pictures of both of these trains at KI. I can't imagine the Gerstlauers on the Racer as one of my friends said after riding Villain a few days before that he'd rather be on the Villain after riding the front-facing side, and that wasn't a compliment.
Who said anything about Racer? they are going on Beast. The old Legend train may be modified like the MBH trains to fit SOB. The park is very impressed with how they are running on SOB and more important, That there not tearing it up.

I see no reason why they would use them for RACER The only turn on the track is the far end and where it meets back up with the outbound run on the return, No articulation needed. Just grease the turns.
Chuck, who was suprised, Almost any place that got new track on Sonny will probably not need any work for next years opening. It was that smooth in those areas.
