Very nice. That's some quality Intamin shipping with the mini-track the trains rest on.

This means one thing, and it is two words..."pull through"....

Not without a middle and back car. If anything, I would worry most about clearances with the back car and its big tail. But yes, after that is done, then I think we could see a pull-through.

Never do they pull a full train through, and they will do a pull through with just the first two cars. The purpose that the pull-through serves is finding clearance issues in track and with supports. By the way, there will be at least a ten - twenty foot clearance between the back 'spoiler' and the support. Cedar Point has done a two car pull through for the last couple coasters. Here's a pic of MF... http://www.guidetothepoint.com/gallery/h-mfconst309.jpg
*EDIT* If you get a leeching problem, its the 3rd pull through pic in the MF gallery.

Why just the first two? It will be with the front car, one car from the middle and the back car.

Your comparison doesn't really work. There are only 2 styles of cars on MF. Lets compare it to Xcelerator, which has different styles of front, middle and back cars. Dragster is the same.

Well, they're certainly not going to assemble the train in the wrong order and they can test clearances using a wooden cut out like in the MF pic.

Do all coasters have to do pull throughs before they can run or do some manufacturers just let her rip and hope nothing goes wrong?

I believe every coaster will go through a pull through, company mandated or not. I would hope to beleive that the park would have enough sense to do a pull through on their own, not to damage or hurt a part to force themselves to pay more to get something repaired...

Beemers dont do pull throughs to my knowledge.

Now, that you said that Brett, I can't remember one time i've seen a pull through on a Beemer...hmmm, wierd. Although Beemer layouts are not usually heavily supported or intertwined to have clearance issues in supports. If the coaster were to valley, that wouldn't be much of a hard task to get back...but repairing damage from a collision with supports could cost some...
