Originally, the tire drive used the mechanism in the "Leave Me Alone Box" instructable but since the cars had trouble pushing the switch, I had to completely remove it and think of a different station mechanism. I have used this mechanism before which five cars operated at the station but I wanted to keep it simple as this instructable was mainly put up for the tire drive.
As you can see by the video below, the design is still a little glitchy but not too bad. I fixed these problems in the bonus step 11 for people who are experiencing car stalls.
IMPORTANT!!!- You must have vertical vengeance and loopin lightning coaster to build this!
ALSO, the pdf file is corrupt for some reason, it just shows a blank page so unfortunately, you may have to view this
on the site alone which torqued me off so much!

Step 3: The Station, Motor, Tire- Drive and Chains
Step 4: The Station Roof
Step 5: Main Support Structure
Step 6: Lift Hill Support and Track
Step 7: Other Supports
Step 8: Track Part 1
Step 9: Track Part 2
Step 10: The Chain and Pulley
Step 11: Having Trouble With This Version? Try These Modded Versions!
These versions are made with metallic knex which make the coaster look nicer.
