Overbanked as in what? That term means different things to different people.

I think Nitro's hammerhead has a banking of nearly 90ยบ but never goes past that. It's certainly not as banked as the Intamin hypers or even Silver Star's far turnaround.

It is not overbanked no, overbanked is over 90* I believe.

Of course it's not overbanked. What posessed you to think that? Gosh!
