Screamin Serpent Boomerang

Saturday, March 2, 2002 3:02 AM
I'm trying to make a Vekoma Boomerang with my SS kit. I have everything planned out but I can't seem to figure ot how to make the anti-rollbacks work forwards and backwards. Any ideas?

We already talekd about this.....no. Whats the reason for it? How do you make the chain drop out for the train to go the other direction?

Also the latch only hooks on one way. How are you going to do this?

At least I dont call a vertical loop a "loopdie-loop"!

Just build an incline without the chain and pull the train up manually and then let it go.

I've come up with a lift system and tested it. However, K'nex won't be selling individual Screamin' Serpent parts until it's a year old. In the mean time, it will just sit and collect dust.

I was thinking of doing the same thing (building a boomerang) and I was thinking if somehow you could get it so that the chain drops slightly when a lever is hit by the train while accending the hills. Be a nightmare to work out, but it would be way cool if it worked. BTW for those of you looking for a Screaming Serpent set (or two or three) I saw a crap load of them down at Le Target for 79.95. You way want to check out your local Target store. Our local one had like 10 of em.
