Introduction: Knex Ball Machine Lithium W/ Instructions
Lithium also has 6 tracks and 6 new elements. It also contains martb95's spiral panel stairs. All of the new elements (including martb95's spiral panel stairs) will be posted on my guide plus a few extras. So be sure to check it out.
Lithium is the biggest project I've ever made instructions for, so if you have a question or are confused about something please leave a comment. If you like it please vote for it in the Toy Contest. Enjoy the video. p.s. The first song is by me.

Step 2: Building the Track
The track is what the cars will run on. The bottom turns are the ones that don't have the grey rod, the top ones do.
Step 3: Building the Support Towers
The support towers will... uh... support the track. First you will build the left one. Then the right. And finally the middle.
Step 4: Attaching the Support Towers and Track
Step 5: Building and Attaching the Base
Step 6: Building the Quarter Arm Lift
This lift was originally built by CassisDude98. I just modified it a little.
Step 7: Building the Support Tower and Loading Mechanism
My ball loader is a bit different then Keggore1's.
Step 8: Building the Ball Loader, Main Paving, and Basket Lifter
Step 9: The Left Side
Both the left and right side contain 3 levels.
Step 10: The Right Side
The right side is almost the same as the left.
Step 11: Extra Supports
Just a couple extra supports.
Step 12: The Top
Step 13: The Tunnel
The green tunnel part is not a necessity. It just makes it look cool.
Step 14: Track 1
Step 15: Track 2
Step 16: Track 3
Step 17: Track 4
Step 18: Tracks 5 and 6
Step 19: Attaching the Roller Coaster Tubing
You can use thick or thin roller coaster track. You may have to trim it a little shorter once you put it on.
Step 20: Building the Cars
You can build as many cars as you want. If your using the older boxier motors make sure you take off the battery covers and put some tape around it so the batteries won't fall out.
Step 21: All Done!
Remember to check my guide out for those new elements. Hope everything was clear enough.
