 Not exactly hard, you just need to slow down the ball a little, and add guard rails on the sides of the ball(he never said you couldn't :-)

I haven't tested it yet, but I'm pretty sure the ball falls off if it rolls over one of it's orifices.

 Yes, but you could have something catch it.

That isn't realy the point of the rod-path isn't it? Could as well just build those guard rails.

I can make it go 2 grey rods, 3 grey rods maximum

now i need to figure out how to make it start on it's own (like in a zig zag thing)
