Thats really cool Btw you should look into making the swings more even (it seems to dip to one side longer then the other)

Yeah, I tried countless variations, making it longer and shorter and this was the only one that really worked.

Hehe, this is pure amusement. Here in Holland, there is a ride in the "efteling" that looks much like this. You are making a big chance in that contest. Btw, I your new avatar image looks nice!

OMG, I have an 8th of the parts needed to build. But, even if i did have enough to build this, i dont have the mind to build non-knex gun stuff like this

Neat! It looks like that gearbox could not take too much more pressure, but I guess it works. Good Job!
