HI!
Many people have seen Shadowman39's Ball launcher lift from his update of Cataclysm. In the comment section of that forum topic he said he would make an Instructable of that lift when he finished Cataclysm. I have the booster from the Rippin' Rocket set but I didn't feel like taking them apart unless I knew what I was doing. One day I was fiddling with the booster from the Lava Launch set and a friend of mine pushed the ball through the launcher and hit my cupboard pretty darn hard. I decided I would do some adjustments and make my own Ball Launcher lift. After two days of building this is what I got. Remember This is not my own idea but a different version of Shadowman39's Ball Launcher. Here's a video:

Once you have gathered the pieces proceed to the building!

This section holds the part of the track where the ball will go through the booster. Just follow the pictures and keep your model in the same position as the picture to make it easier to build.

100% knex? What do you mean?

Tornado96 (author)  Dawson.J2 years ago
It's up to you. Post if you want. Personally I like to use the booster because it give a lot more height.
Tornado96 (author)  Tornado962 years ago
WOW! What motor did you use? That would require a LOT of torque. Anyways, it's up to you to post or not.
