About: I'm a 16 year-old guy who loves to build mechanics out of knex. my main interests are ball machines and roller coasters. My real name is Matt and I'm a christian. I live in Australia or more commonly known a...

This is my first micro tube supported hyper style coaster. I used some pieces to use to guide the track. I got the idea from sscoasters. Credit goes to bballer347. You will be able to notice the track guides in almost all the photos. The pieces used in the track guide are yellow connectors, black rods, red connectors and using different length rods to shape it how I want to. I will soon be making an instructable on how to use this style of track guide soon.

    Hey Tornado96. I really like your coaster. I am working on a micro k'nex coaster too (B&M looper) but I use normal k'nex for supports, which works good. Could you give me any advice about a micro k'nex coaster?
