Very interesting. I had a one time started a Phantom's Revenge model, maybe I should start it again. Also, if you plan on keeping this for a long while, it would look awesome if you painted your K'nex the actual colors of X (if you really want to paint your K'nex).

That's way cool man, although I would lose the poll reminder following the mouse and the X logo as the background, as its kinda painful to look at and makes your site look 10 times more busy then need be. Simplicity is best.

If the shoe fits, find another one.

It was 6-7 feet tall and he left out the interlocking corkscrews. It just took that dive of the brake run(straight away on his) into a turn to the lift. He also made this bird house like station(probably was a bird house since it still had the hole in it ;)) The model worked sometimes but often ran out of speed but that dive loop cacn look really tempting with K-NEX but not as much as X's raven turn, now give me mor pictures, PLEASE

Wow, great work. I need to buy more Screamin Serpent kits so I can work on something different like that. Keep up the good work!
