The drag racing lights on HS gave me the idea of racing two of these awesome machines. Do you guys like this idea or would you prefer just one big TA2K like the Japanese one? See, they would cost about the same (I'm guessing here). Which one(s) would you like to see at your home park? (Other than CP!)

A recing thrust air would be cool, because it'd be more Xtreme than Hypersonic. It'll be insane.

As long as the trains are so close to each other that you could almost reach out and touch the people next to you, I think that the racing thing would be good. It is neat to be on a racing coaster but when the tracks are seperated too much it takes away from the feel.

I think a duel track version ala S:TE or Gemini, along with slightly higer capacity trains would be the answer to high capacity, plus make the ride even more fun.
I don't think parks would want people slapping hands at 100+ mph, though. I was just thinking, I'm not going to speculate where it is going to go, but I read an interview with Stan Checketts and they asked what was next for the TA2K after Hypersonic. He said they were currently working on one that would go slightly over 100 mph (Fujikyu Highland), and soon they would start work on one that would go "WAY" over 100mph! Excited? I know I am!

That's what I was thinking that could be done at Cedar Point for a higher capacity ride. But instead of just dueling/racing, or a big one, how about both. :)

I like the dueling idea since the line has to be very long.

Peabody, S:TE already has dual racing tracks. Were you thinking of S:UE?

You misread. I said a duel track TA2K like S:TE or Gemini (In other words, a side by side racer sharing a superstructure)........
