QUICKTRACK ROLLER COASTER TRACK SYSTEM READY FOR LAUNCH

Bridging the gap between the Hardware Store and World Class Roller Coaster model

Mooresville, NC, 8/22/2017

– The quicktrack system provides all of the parts that aren’t readily available from a hardware store to produce a World Class 1:32 Roller Coaster Model. Quicktrack is primarily a low cost rail tie system and ride vehicle that utilizes many readily available items such as PVC pipe, water pipe and standard bearings used in many RC vehicles. Conceived and designed by two active mechanical engineers with over 30 years’ experience in bringing consumer products to market, the quicktrack system will allow educators, hobbyists, makers and roller coaster enthusiasts to produce a model limited only by their own imagination. “Because the quicktrack System isn't a kit with a fixed finished outcome or limited number of interlocking parts, it allows you the ultimate freedom to go through the creative process and reap all of the benefits it sows. By the time you finish the first few feet of track you will know infinitely more about Physics, rollercoaster design, and design in general.”– Steve Guilmette, Co-Founder

 

With a passion for S.T.E.M and it’s place in the current education system, Steve and Lee plan to build an online community and provide a place for the roller coaster designers of the future. The forum on the website,

http://www.coaster-track.com, will launch simultaneously with the Kickstarter where backers and fans alike can begin the communal creation process.The co-founders aren’t simply going to administer the forum, they have committed to sharing all of their accessory CAD files for free, so customers with their own 3D printers can print the parts themselves. “As product development engineers, not only do we understand the ins and outs of designing and bringing a product to market, we also understand the fulfillment of design. It's an iterative process, you try, fail, modify and try again, the learning and progress that comes from this is not attainable any other way.”

– Lee Williams, Co-Founder

 

Quicktrack systems purchased through Kickstarter will include track ties, a working train, and all required hardware and specialty tools. Systems will be available in configurations for everyone from amateur builders and seasoned enthusiasts to educators and entire makerspaces and S.T.E.M facilities.

Being a HUGE fan of Arrow and model coaster building, the fact that this project was canceled makes me sad. However, I was thinking - if there was some (feasible and legal) way to make the track compatible with both K'nex and LEGO supports, this thing would really become worth it. And probably gain a lot of traction.
