KNex rollercoaster pics

If any 'buzzer's are interested, I've just put up some pictures of my KNex coaster here: http://home.insight.rr.com/seward/knex-main.htm

Just my way of taking up a little space in the vast wasteland of the internet :-)

I hope you enjoy them!

Good Work.

That's an interesting idea for a station.

For brakes, I wrapped several rubber bands around the green pieces that hold the track together. The black wheel assembly rubs against the rubber bands and slows it down.

Interesting... I made an Impulse coaster (V. 2.0) out of my set. Anyone want to see it?

It basically sucks and doesn't actually work, but hell, I was bored with my old Screamin Serpent.

Hey, it looks good... that would be tough to get to work. All you need are some electromagnets and a dedicated line to the substation! :-)

I'm sure there's a way though..........

Let's put it this way Jim, it's quite obvious looking at your coaster and mine, that a lot more time went into yours, lol.

I built one with the old Knex coaster, an impulse, it's in my room. It really works! But, it doesn't go up the other hill, so you have to pull it to the top of the straight track and let go. The cars are made like the Invertigo cars, but not exactly, I tried though! ;) It took me a day to do it! I'm trying to get a stand up coaster, cause just flip the earlier inverted cars that I made for single 4 riders, upside down and you got a stand up car! But the problem is that I got not enough wheels! If I did have the Screamin' Serpent set, I would be going off everywhere!! ;)
