New KNEX ball Element Answered

I have found out this new element that works at high speeds better. When it turns I recommend you keep a guardrail below. This is better when this is high up in the air because it will get more speed.

I know a mod to this!!!!! Add a black "Y" connector to the bottom of the red connector connecting the grey rod do it. See how it works!

I_am_Canadian, I think if you want to start a ball machine you should find a instructable for a ball machine and then get more ideas from ball machine guides. After you do that build off of the original ball machine. Thats what I did and I used this guide: The Ultimate Guide to K'nex Ball Machine Elements Then I used this ball machine instructable to build off of: "Deux" K'nex Ball Machine.

Wow, this is very strang, i was trying to think up a way for something EXACTLY like this, but i used black "y" connectors on my red connectors for a smoother track.
