Reon wrote:I'm going to start working on Project wildcat again, but I have a few questions first off:

1)How do those first gen boomerang lifts work? I'm thinking of doing something like that for the back spike.

2) Can I safely include fluffy, fluffy bunny filled with medicine and goo hill in the ride using only top wheels, and a bigger wheel on the underside, grasping to the two main rails?

As for the layout, it depends on question 2. I plan on making the basis of it two verticle spikes, with some trick track in the middle. Depending on how gravity works, I might make the trick track into a curving hill, resulting in a S shaped layout. Also, I'd like to make the front spike past-verticle, but I dont think thats possible unless I modify the carriage with a set of undertrack wheels.

As for the actual track, I'm thinking use 2x4s and such for the base of the track, then cover it with a few layers of plywood to smooth things out. The verticle spikes will come out by linking the track pieces up at a constant rate of 18 degrees per increment. (It should take 5 segments to get it smoothly from horizontal to verticle.)


So whats up with project Wildcat?

Ive been watching this thread for a while and I'm glad to see its returned.

I'm honestly clueless right now :cry: I'm toying around with a few possiblilities, including, but not limited to:

1) Focus first on buying a steel drum to play some gigs and help raise funds that way.
2) Possiblity that I won't move back home after college, thus making it useless to build something THERE.
3) On a similar note, concidering the lack of time I have at home.

As for the coaster itself, I constantly research construction, the physics, and possible layouts for Project: Wildcat. It's just a matter of deciding how I want to go about this...

Don't worry, everyone. I never said P:W was cancelled. Its just...suspended until I can figure out some definate answers. I don't want to spend a bunch of money on something that wont work, right?
