i usually dont download circuit tracks like this because im what you guys would call a dragger. but i downloaded this track because i saw the loops and didnt think it was possible. Im sure other people have gotten around them but i cant. But either way its a great, fun track and i hope a lot of other draggers will give it a try.

Completing a loop can be frustrating with a stock truck since it takes considerable driving skills. So yesterday, I built a few custom trucks specifically for the purpose of being able to drive inverted more easily. They look kinda nutty but they handle perfectly for their intended use.

I suggest running with cockpit view toggled on since you often have to make minor steering adjustments while inverted which's much more difficult to execute with chase far view.

The trucks/cars have been tested in profesional, intermediate, manual and auto trannys, in the rain and snow, forward and in reverse.

Amazing. I have to admit, I thought this could not be done. Now I have to re-think that whole "speed-of-light" limit thing.

^Well remember back when the game first came out the limit was dead-set at like 230 degrees or something? Fantastic to see that it's been done!

Pretty challenging to hit every loop complete. Only thing I dont like is the music file [:P]

Good grief. I tried this and had to use the "speed trainer" (available from the mtmg extra utils page) to get as far as a 120-degree loop. I haven't perfected how to get a really good loop on this track, but I've got three awesome ones - the only trouble is they get wrecked by being a little crooked.

Excellent track!

can you run this track with a stock or do you need one like liver and onions.

you can run the track with stock, i did the loop with my trucks (jumper's wheels) executioner and big foot.
I never could beat Mal's 2:01.09 but that's more because i'm a use to be than it is because of the truck. :D I never installed the trainer so it's doable without. Perhaps Mal can make us a replay some day?

The replay is in the download. I made that before we had the means to have replays so I included it in the zip. It was done with stock, but took me all night to get a nice lap. And Mal's time is more than I can do too.

Not being an engineer or a track maker, I do know in real life looping roller coasters, motorcycle stunts, etc., are not circular but a decreasing radius entering and an increasing radius exiting. A teardrop.
Do the real laws of gravity and momentum apply to MTM2 tracks? Would a real world shape help, hinder or be impossible?

I have completed a couple loops on this track, but not very many, and none gracefully!

In a general sort of way, yes. But if you roll off a cliff you'll notice your truck will right itself before hitting the ground. That can cause problems in a loop. The shape of roller coasters might be of help, I haven't tried it, but I had enough trouble making perfect circles let alone eliptical loops, hehe.

You really need to take a look at this technology -- it's amazing what they can do with computers now! :)
