Actually wouldn't Nylon wheels make it better (faster, stronger) because of the harder wheels? I'd think so? In either case, I still love that ride, but it's intensity really depends on where you sit.
Sorry, I should have been clear. I was referring to Medusa at Six Flags Mexico which had a different wheel set put on when they installed VR on the ride and it has apparently been running slower than usual due to this.
I'm thinking of Storm Chaser opening season - people who rode it with the nylon wheels generally didn't like it as much as people who rode with the polyurethane. Could be a warming up later in the season thing?
The polyurethane also runs smoother (the stuff saved the skateboard industry because of this).

Sounds like the new Skywarp may be one of the worst investments SF has ever made. SFOT and SFGadv, respectively, have been having tons of problems with their new ABC Tourbillion rides. But apparently you guys are having even worse problems with your new Skyline attraction. I hope SF doesn't end up regretting that they bought these rides.
