Steel Python Knex Roller Coaster- Instructions

Picture of Steel Python Knex Roller Coaster- Instructions
It's back everybody- Steel Python! 
    This model is the recreation of my older design, with a few minor changes, since I never had specific pictures of the original. This design of course has its flaws, so you may have to fiddle around with it until it works correctly. As for me, when I made the instructable the track's adjustments became warped and then it didn't work any more. Sorry that I couldn't get a parts count for you, but deconstruction started right after I finished taking pictures. It sounds dumb, I know, but this is my first instructable.
    So after some requests, here it is! The instructions for Steel Python.
    Enjoy, and remember to leave a comment, and feel free to post your version of this coaster. Thanks!

Step 2: The lift Hill

These are the three modules that connect to make the lift hill of the coaster. Pay close attention because it's easy to get lost!

Step 3: The Motor?

This is a small step, because all it is is the motor system! 

Step 4: Drop Support Tower

This is the tower that supports the drop and also the rest of the lift hill. There are two modules in the making of this step.

Step 5: Extra Base and Supports

This step shows you how to build the base that leads up to the corkscrew and that maintains the bottom section of the drop. There are a total of three modules that must be connected together to create it.

Step 6: More Base and Supports

Turn your model around, because this step is added onto the other side! Finally, something on the other side! Your almost finished making the base of the Steel Python!

Step 7: Even More Base and Supports

This is the homestretch! Your'e thiiis close to laying down some track! 

Step 8: The Chain Lift Track

You have finally reached the stage of putting on track! Yay!

Step 9: The Drop

Cat + ball machine/roller coaster (usually) = chaos

Thanks!
your welcome
Is there an other way to connect the track? I don't have that many flexy green rods, and none of those neon yellow track connectors :(
Jag56 (author)  dr. richtofen1 year ago
If you convert the supports to micro than you would still need the neon converters.... But you could recreate the supports and make them like those on Serpent Spiral, which uses the converter rods instead. :)
Ok, I'll try sometime. I haven't built a RC in a VERY long time. Thanks for the tip :)
Looks good, I like it!
