I don't understand why so many people find it hard to accept that K'Nex is using Micro pieces more than originals nowadays.  There's over 10 million people in the world who build with K'Nex, and if they were all against Micro pieces, they wouldn't be making them.

Not bad for what you're capable of doing with VV track, though.

Why would you want him to post it?

You can make it by making all of those blue rod boxes and adding track!

FAIL

shadowninja31 made it! (author)shadowninja312009-05-05

Why not? Why cant I like the way he built his. Plus, I could maybe give ideas if I had it. And that "FAIL" makes you look like a noob. (not to be mean)

author
Owenmon made it! (author)Owenmon2009-05-06

I didn't say that you can't like it.

How am I being mean? Is saying the word "Fail" frequently a bad thing?

author
Randomguy65 made it! (author)Randomguy652010-01-05

Well it is solid constuction whitch is hard to do with micro scale

author
Owenmon made it! (author)Owenmon2010-01-05

Yep. that's why regular K'nex are better.

author
shadowninja31 made it! (author)shadowninja312009-05-21

to a degree. I'm not personally offended, its just others can be, its a bad habit, and I MIGHT GET MAD if you keep being "stupid". If you don't get what I meant by that, don't take it personally.

author
Owenmon made it! (author)Owenmon2009-05-21

Okay. Please forgive me then. :-)

author
shadowninja31 made it! (author)shadowninja312009-05-22

ok

author
Jesus. made it! (author)Jesus.2009-05-21

well no but you were saying his coster was a "fail" and that is not very nice.

author
shadowninja31 made it! (author)shadowninja312009-05-06

and how might that be a fail?

author
The Creatornator made it! (author)The Creatornator2009-05-22

Not micro knex, small size

author
shadowninja31 made it! (author)shadowninja312009-05-23

They are called micro knex. I know what I have, and I know my vocab.

author
The Creatornator made it! (author)The Creatornator2009-05-24

The size of the roller coaster.

Tom Buckey made it! (author)Tom Buckey2009-04-30

I will as soon as i get my GCSEs otta the way with could be a long time sorry!

author
shadowninja31 made it! (author)shadowninja312009-04-30

ok well i guess thats fine.

author
Owenmon made it! (author)2009-04-18

)-: Micro coasters stink. You should get screamin serpent sets.

author
coolknexcreations made it! (author)coolknexcreations2009-04-19

No they don't, they can do all sorts of loops and turns that screamin serpent could do.

author
Owenmon made it! (author)Owenmon2009-05-05

Can they make 45 degree turns?

author
Tom Buckey made it! (author)Tom Buckey2009-05-20

No they carnt

author
Owenmon made it! (author)Owenmon2009-05-20

Oh. okay.

author
Tornado96 made it! (author)Tornado962009-12-30

Now they can

author
Owenmon made it! (author)Owenmon2009-12-31

Okay... But their still nowhere near as flexible as the Screamin' Serpent tracks.

author
Tornado96 made it! (author)Tornado962010-01-02

Unluckily I only have an rr and an sm. But I have a lot of micro track

author
coolknexcreations made it! (author)coolknexcreations2009-05-05

Maybe i dont know

author
Owenmon made it! (author)Owenmon2009-05-06

Okay then.

FAIL

Madrias357 made it! (author)Madrias3572009-05-08

Is that all you know how to say? Learn some more words, add them to your vocabulary, and then post in a civilized manner. You are the failure here, Owen-mon-82397.

author
Owenmon made it! (author)Owenmon2009-05-08

Is there something wrong with liking the word "Fail"? If not, please correct me. ;-)

author
lemonie made it! (author)lemonie2009-05-11

He means that you have failed to communicate what is wrong with this. In posting a one-word comment you have simply said "I don't like this", in a word. Saying why you don't like it, or what is wrong with it would be more helpful / intelligent. L

author
Madrias357 made it! (author)Madrias3572009-05-12

Thank you, Lemonie. You beat me to it. I was going to state that I had nothing wrong with the word Fail, but that there are other words, and better ways to explain why you don't like something or what the person did wrong in such a tremendous fashion that warrants stating "Fail" in all caps and bold.

author
Owenmon made it! (author)Owenmon2009-04-19

Except, there much more flimsy, and you can't make smooth turns. And all you have to do for the supports is make boxes out of gray rods. And they don't look anywhere near realistic. Compare your coaster, to this one : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xWZNUvYmWyI See how realistic and smooth it is? Compared to yours, your coaster stinks -.- And the screamin serpent set comes with much more pieces. :-)

author
shadowninja31 made it! (author)shadowninja312009-04-20

Well too bad man. If he likes it fine. I do too. If you want him to make some with the screamin serpent sets, buy him one... or two. (I hope you realize thats sarcasm) Dood, you can get all $%&@#$*% at him for making something.

author
shadowninja31 made it! (author)shadowninja312009-04-20

Plus, don't compare a really good coaster to one that's still being developed.

author
Owenmon made it! (author)Owenmon2009-04-20

It's still being developed? O.o

author
shadowninja31 made it! (author)shadowninja312009-04-20

oh, i dunno. maybe... its probably his first anyways.

author
rrr67 made it! (author)2009-10-31

did u build this from an idea in ur head or did some 1 build it 4 u?

author
Tom Buckey made it! (author)Tom Buckey2009-11-03

this is 99% my own idea.
the 1 % is the top bit where the chain goes under the track

author
rybubbles made it! (author)2009-08-30

author
Mr. Muggle made it! (author)Mr. Muggle2009-09-12

Knex sells only crap lately, I even heard the company is bankroot, does anyone know if thats true

author
Lowney made it! (author)2009-08-14

I still prefer the screamin' serpent style track
