But the PTCs that are on it now aren't engineered for an inversion, correct?

Just thinking through that particular scenario....

Wooden "plussed" helices (min. 540*), in order of preference:


KG's Twister


American Eagle

(Old) Rattler

Son of Beast

Hurricane: Cat 5

Please note, my opinions are official. If yours vary from mine, then you're plain wrong. (*winky*)

Hurricane at the bottom of the list looks about right. What a miserable waste of trees/charm.

The trick was to surrender to the flow.

I'd rather they stay away from alterations like that as well, just wondering if it's a "Keeping up with the Jonses" kind of deal

Just catching up on this thread and wanted to pass along that it's nothing of the sort. It's something Will had always hoped to do.

Just when I was OK with waiting to find out, Paula has to stir the pot again. :) I'm pretty excited to hear what's going on.

There's the new announcement. I find it curious that they are having GCI do it and not Gravity Group.
