The Joker: 4D Free-Flying coaster
--> View Instruction

Hi ! today i present my first roller coaster instruction and it's the joker who can be found at Six Flags Great Adventure, Six Flags New England and many more SF parks. Heres the video and an image

oh btw i won't do piece count because some micro knex will be used (not a lot though) and also i couldnt think of a 4D free-spin car prototype so i used the normal knex one.

« on: March 16, 2017, 11:58:52 pm »
Hi  :)
This is the post for the march's knexflux fan of the month and that fan is: Random_Builder from IL in USA !
Here are his answers to the questions

< How did you discover knexs ?
> ''I think my brother got a set and grew out of them then I grew into them.''

< Why are you still doing some knexs today ?
> ''They are very fun and you can made almost anything.''

< Are you working on any projects right now ?
> '' I want to try to make a ball machine that is smaller than any other one.''

< Do you think you can transfer this passion to your kids ? (if you want kids later)
> ''I hope I can!''

< Do you think that parents should encourage their kids to play knexs ?
> ''Definitely! It boosts creativity and gets them off their electronics. ''

That was the answers of Random_Builder and btw I congratulates him to have won the snowman constest.
Cheers !

General Knex Discussion / Knexflux fan of the month
« on: September 25, 2016, 05:59:29 pm »
hi everyone  ;D stoped the "fan of the month" concept and i think we could do the same concept on knexflux

i explain how it could work:

1: send a message that says "i want to be [month]'s fan" at an gmail account that i will create.
2:if you are choosed i will sent you an email whit 4 questions and you will have to send me your anwsers still by email.
3:your anwsers will be COPIED AND PASTED on a knexflux topic called [year]'s fan of the month.

i hope you like my idea and tell me if you are agree with this project thank  ;)

General Knex Discussion / a few knex questions (:
« on: July 06, 2016, 07:49:48 pm »
Hey  :)

Today I am in Africa and i just saw all my unread posts. After consulting a lot of topic, I have decided to ask you a few question

1. How did you start to play Knex ?
2. What was your first Knex set ?
3. At wich age did you recieve your first set.
4.(only if you are concerned) At wich age did you seriously start to play Knex  (It concerns me)

My answers

1. When I recived my first set, I reallllly likes the TV show: Wipeout i wanted to creates one but i did nt have enough pieces so after, I started to buy other sets whit bad deals (because i did nt know how did it cost) and after i started the instrucables community so I started to build ball machines.
2. The loopin lightning roller coaster
3. 6years old
4. 7,8 or 9 (i don t remember well)
