Do any other coasters currentlyl use this abomination from Morgan? Did any others use them in the past?
As of now, I do not recall any other coasters that currently run those "coffin" type Morgan trains.

I believe that SFAW used them because of liability concerns. Texas Cyclone had some close clearances that caused injuries to riders that stuck out their hands too far. Apparantly, warnings weren't enough to satisfy Six Flags or their insurers. But then again, they eventually went back again to cars that were not like this.

Also, the PTCs are short trains, only holding about 20 people. Pretty small for a coaster of that size, but perhaps they were trying to help minimize the forces of the trains tearing the track apart.

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.
