Has anyone built any real coasters out of knex? I have built Top Thrill Dragster, Dejavu, Wicked Twister and "X". Right now i am constructing Gemini...the dueling coaster at Cedar Point.... Here is my site with pitures of my coasters..tell me what you think.
no, It wasnt and X model, but i was trying to do the X style seats, unless thats what you meant. It didnt work at all after it turned 90 degrees once. I was trying to do it on a screamin squirrel esque ride.
i am currently building millenium force...it has an 85 degree drop but i can not find a way to get the quick cable lift as in the real millenium force. If you have a way please tell me. The dude with all of the coasters...with "X" it has 2 seperate tracks with the 1 on bottom where the trains actually ride and the 1 on top controls how the seats spin so you might want to take this into consideration when u build "X" and if u have already done it then you might want to redo it to make it better. I have made many k'nex coasters with both the first classic roller coaster of k'nex and the screamin' serpent modle. i have even done a rubber band launch like you talked about only it was a while ago. i built a virticle shuttle loop with a rubber band launch and this thing was awesome.
Can I PLEASE see a construction pic. of your Millenium force!! How tall is it! How much do you have finished??How many sets do you have? Can i see pics of your last models? ------------------ Millenium Force- 1 Wicked Twister- 7 Magnum- 7 TTD- 0
For the lift cant you just put a magnet to the chain.. and then put a magnet on the bottom of the train and then when it goes through they will attrack ------------------ Millenium Force- 1 Wicked Twister- 7 Magnum- 7 TTD- 0
ok first of all i do not have a digital camera to put pics on the net with. and second what would be the point of a magnet if there is already a chain and any way what i meant by that was what could i use to get a quicker lift because as we know the lift on millenium force is pretty quick and using a magnet on the chain will just move the same speed as the chain is going
The height of that was 8ft tall. Did you like chaos? If you want the chain to go fast put a different motor on the coaster and connect to the rodd that is on the gears... I wish you had pics! How much do you have done on Millenium Force...
dude the fastest motor i have still dosnt go as fast as i would like it but i guess i will have to settle with that...ya man i loved chaos...this 1 time i built a full amusement park...it had 2 roller coasters a farris wheel a swing ride and a few other things...i also had a crane built to mak it look like the park was under construction...i have about 1/2 of my millenium force done...also how many coaster sets do you have?
