One of the only backyard coasters I have seen that makes it all the way around. It's ready for riders now and I'm sure more videos will follow. (if anyone should happen to care).

Pretty cool stuff. Watched the vids with no sound but got the gist visually that those truck wheels are the key to this thing. OH! And I so wanted the thing to be way higher

This is what happens when cool dads are unemployed.

Just kidding!

That's pretty cool, thanks for sharing.

The wheel assemblies and axles are indeed the key. It started as a straight coaster so the cart could be rigid. But Then I decided to add a curve and oh boy, that's when the engineering really started. Building the track is easy in comparison.
The worst part is, like anything I build, I already have a better idea for the car so I've doomed myself to another full weekend of work.

That's neat. Roller blade parts for the wheel trucks, huh? How'd you talk the Mrs. into letting you build that?

Looks like it could use an electric motor somewhere, because pushing it by hand might get old after a while.
