Nooooo!!!! Don't buy micro K'nex. They break so easily. Stick to regular K'nex pieces. And get coaster sets like the Screamin' Serpent. :-D

Hey, if he wants to build with micro K'Nex, let him do it.  I've started experimenting with them myself; they don't always break so easily, and they're pretty cool when you know how to use them.

Also, Micro sets cost a lot less than SS's, unless you buy them from eBay (and even then, you can still find cheaper Micro sets than that).

KCIG (don't know what else to call you): I'd buy a VV-style set, build the one in the instructions, and figure it out from there.  If you have ideas for various layouts, you should be pretty well set.

Well first you will need to buy a kit from Knex.Try to find the cheapest one or you can by pieces from the extra piece page.Buy buying a kit is much cheaper and easier.You can build one of the two models or if you already have an idea in mind start building.But when it comes to the moter and chain lift go to the instructions

Well, if you want to make an all micro piece coster you will need alot of micro knex pieces for maximum performance. If you want to make a bigger coaster than you need normal size pieces connected to micro track.
