K'Nex launched shuttle

Tuesday, August 26, 2003 12:27 PM
I want to build a shuttle coaster out of the new K'Nex Rippin' Rocket set, something along the lines of Superman at SFMM (a reverse free-fall type ride) but am having trouble figuring out how to make this work. I want to make the tower real tall (about seven feet or so), but I would probably need about 2 or 3 boosters to get the car up that high. That, of course, means that, once the car goes up, it won't be allowed to fall back down. Have any engineers out there figured out a solution to this problem, or found a way to make one booster shoot the car that high?
