Hi tornado96, I was just wondering, could you make a separate tutorial on how to make a micro knex coaster cobra roll? I really need some help! Thanks
Tornado96 (author)  Wdptimmy20101 year ago
Making instructions for individual elements is not something that can easily be done because unless they build the element at the exact same scale, it'll be different to what you want.

My best advice is to build it in sections. Are you using tubes or box supports? I'd highly suggest starting with box supports as they are much easier to work with. Work on the first half-loop until you're happy with it. Look at heaps of pictures of real life cobra rolls and try to make it as close to the real thing as possibe. Maybe even try looking at other knex cobra rolls. The hardest part of a cobra roll is the valley between the two half-loops. make sure it's no too tight or the train will lose speed.

I hope that helped. Good luck with your building! :)
Hi, I know I have asked this question before, but I forgot the answer and can't find where I asked about it. :P What is the difference between green and orange (or other) colored micro K'nex roller coaster track? Thanks again. :D

Well there no difference between one coloured track over another. BUT the track you get in newer sets have plastic tabs as supposed to metal pins.

I just noticed you are 0% featered.That can't be possible! I think almost all of your Ibes deserve to be featered...
Tornado96 (author)  sathothy2 years ago
yeah... Instructables feature people don't seem to like me :(
Maybe.... Maybe your next will. Also why didn't you posted(not instruction way) Overdrive?
What is your next project ectually? You cancelled(I think) your recre from superman. And you are starting/planning your inverted coaster. Right?

BTW. I'm also Sathothy from SSC.

Yup the inverted. I've had my half-yearly tests and then I had a youth camp. So I have not had a lot of time. :)
