I had to copy and paste since the link didn't work. But that looks awesome, did you need more than one set to make that?

You outta have your site listed in CB and this posted to News here.

I have a few questions about your Deja VU?

Is your coaster a working model?

Do you have problems with the train valleying?

Does it work better tahn the real thing?

The video of X is a little disorienting. It takes about 5 seconds to navigate the entire course. But that's just physics.

Good job. The models look great. Try the Ghostrider next :)

Impressive. I didn't know K'Nex was that versatile. Maybe I'll invest myself.

One suggestion, though: change the site's background. It's extremely distracting.

If you can film a video of this thing in action, I'd love to see it.

DCARCT - So what your saying is basically that your model works just as often as the real ones? Maybe you can make afew million off it too :)

No, then he'd be sued for not having them opened on time or because of poor design :)

That coaster is awesome. I guess that must've taken a long time to build. I bought K'nex's first rollercoaster model called "K'nex Rollercoaster." It sucked. I couldn't even get the thing to go through the loop, since the loop was taller than the drop. Now, it's in one straight piece of track across my ceiling, with my own inverted train w/ the K'nex motor in it that goes back and forth and hits a stick when it gets to the end to reverse the motor. By any chance, did you use that set, or the "screaming serpent" set? I really want to congratulate you in your accomplishment.

VOSM, wow, did you even look at the directions? The loop should definitely not be taller than the drop. I got mine to work 90% of the time.

TOGO!

I was at VOSM's house and helped him build it. He isn't serious about the loop but it wouldn't make it for some reason and we were mad because it took so long to build. Actually it made one successfull run and 2 that made the loop but then came off the track.
