Introduction: Meteorite Knex Roller Coaster

This is my first micro tube supported hyper style coaster. I used some pieces to use to guide the track. I got the idea from sscoasters. Credit goes to bballer347. You will be able to notice the track guides in almost all the photos. The pieces used in the track guide are yellow connectors, black rods, red connectors and using different length rods to shape it how I want to. I will soon be making an instructable on how to use this style of track guide soon.

Hey Tornado96. I really like your coaster. I am working on a micro k'nex coaster too (B&M looper) but I use normal k'nex for supports, which works good. Could you give me any advice about a micro k'nex coaster?

Mittie55 (author)Tornado962011-05-22

Okay. I've got a SSCoasters account (name: Newbie (lol.)), but I haven't post anything yet.

author
Tornado96 (author)Mittie552011-05-22

author
Mittie55 (author)Tornado962011-05-23

Okay, I just use www.uploadplaatjes.nl and that works fine for me :P

author
Tornado96 (author)Mittie552011-05-23

fail (author)2010-10-31

if i had that much knex i would build a really big gun

author
Tornado96 (author)fail2010-10-31

A gun made out of micro knex would probably snap A LOT.

author

i hate guns

author

why

author

there are too many of them
i don't really hate them but there are just too many of them
some are stil pretty cool

author

ooooooooooooo

author

I don't hate them I just think that they're are too many.

author

only 1 is cool:
the tr18

author

I have NO idea what you're talking about... :-)

Nice! I tried to build a micro coaster with tube supports,but it didn't work out :-(

author
RNB (author)Jag562010-06-22

why don't you try the coaster from tornado96? He's made an instructable of Electric Eel, and that coaster features tube supports. Good luck!

author
Jag56 (author)RNB2010-07-28

I will try,but I have to wait till Cataclysm is finished.

author
Tornado96 (author)Jag562010-10-01

lol, I'll lok out for the new coaster.

author
Tornado96 (author)Jag562010-06-16

Try big tubes. They're much easier.

mikstr2 (author)2010-05-14

Tornado96 (author)mikstr22010-05-14

Mr. Muggle (author)2010-04-18

DUDE awesome, make a video!

author
Tornado96 (author)Mr. Muggle2010-04-19

The only reason I could make a video of Scorpion's rock was cuz i borrowed the camera from a friend. But when I get back to Australia I'll buy one.

author
JMrocks (author)Tornado962010-04-22

Hey! Why didn't you ask me for it? I'll try to bring it tomorrow.
the coaster is good :)

author
Tornado96 (author)JMrocks2010-04-23

Hey if you don't need can I use it for my current coaster when it's done?

author
JavaNut13 (author)2010-04-21

People with too much spare time, keep up the wicked work!

You're getting a lot better! the crest is really misshapen try to make all your curves continuous. no flat parts and no sharp parts.

author

how is it misshapen? I want my coasters to be the best they possibly can.

author

Real hypers drops are made of a continuous curve like this

the green line is how it should look

author

a better way t make the track guide is to put the red connectors that hold all the rods on sideways so you can have 2 rods going through and make your own custom curves.

That will fix a lot of your problems try it on your next coaster.

:) TBM

author

there are three reasons i´m not going to do that.
1 i already started my next one
2 i dont have enough rods
3 i can make any type of curve with it. I'll be making an instructable on it later  
 BTW thanks for the advice.

author

maybe switch it to big knex or use big knex for the supports.

author

I thought about doing that after I saw Jogumpie's construction(demolition) pictures of speed o' fear
