nice helix but i have done that too. the incline gives it a nice touch. heres a helix for ya. make a helix similar to your scrambler and make it do a roll part of the way through. slow yourself down though or you will kill some peeps

Yeah i figured that im currently working on that transition into the second helix maybe make it a bit wider to reduce the g forces.

I think im happy with the way it is now. Working on another coaster that should be better than this one.;party;
