A corkscrew rail, like a roller coaster. You would be upside down while sliding it, and it could kill someone.
I don't deny there are bad things in the US right now, hell, 51% of the country to be exact. But god damnit, our country being fat is NOT a problem. I do't give a shit how fat people are. hell, fat kids are harder to kidnap, that means our country is safer.
I wanna build a quarter pipe rail. You get speed then It goes almost completly vertical so you trick off it then land on the rail again it will have to be a double barrel or even triple rail though cause it will be so hard to land in the exact same place.
there has been an O rail done but i think your talking about a loop like in propoganda but a rail...? if so i think it would be pretty impossible because unless you were gorilla steezed to the max then you would probably break your back on the rail with all the force
Yeah I think the whole 'Quarter-pipe rail' idea sounds tight...but it's been done before. Still pretty sick though. And the title of this thread made me think that someone actually did a loop-d-loop rail. AK BC SESH
Ive seen rails that are pretty close to quarter pipe, just like a launch at the end theres one at fernie out in canada or one of the canadian rockies resortsi think, if u tweaked it a lil you could probably land back on the rail. or. i think the loop would work if u made the loop reall small, like 5 foot diameter and just sorta sucked ur feet in rather than trying to maintain ur stance and slide it
you would have to be going really fast to complete a loop rail, you have to apply whatever you weigh to the rail at the top of it. if it's ever been done, i really want to see it because it sounds next to impossible
Its totally doable!!! It would have to be open ended, and fairly far apart so if u did fall u didnt fall onto the rail below you. I dont think it would be as hard as everyone thinks it would be, but the consequence would be alot bigger than most.
What is the colour of a mirror?
1.Your tails would catch when you are coming out of it
2.you would flip cuz of the force
3.If you dont have enough or too much speed, you kill yourself' -salomon_1080
1. youd have to build it so that the rail in the loop moves to the left or right, so that the ends are about a ski width a part. then there would be no tail-catch-age.
2. no you wouldnt. centripital force would keep you to the rail (if you have the perfect approach). you would get dizzy though.
3. i concur.
itd be difficult. balance skills dont really help in this case, because when you're upside down you can't really balance yourself. you'd have to have the perfect approach and hit the beginning flat part of the rail absolutely perfectly and with a lot of speed so that you can let force take care of it around the loop. a lot of speed. the only way extra speed would hurt is if it sacrificed your positioning of the rail. man you could get so fucked up tho. but if youve got enough speed and at least a decent aim and keep your feet on the rail up to the loop, youd land on your feet.
i think if you had enough speed and enough balls you could do it. and...according to physics you could do it. if a roller coaster can go upside down then i'm pretty sure a skiier could. i could have my physics teacher prove it if you could give me the wieght of the skiier, the diamater off the circle (or dimensions of a loop), the friction coefficient of the rail (probably close to nothing because they're slick), and any other info you might think pertinent
Are you feelin me? I'm on a killin spree.
There's nothing to lose when noone knows your name.
it would be very difficult to impossible to clean. i have always thought of a quarter rail though, which would be sick. you would have to reenter leanin a little on your back foot, because if you came down parallel to the ground it would grab you
depending on my mood, you might get a nice thoughtful responce that might make sense, or you might get complete jibberish that is not wise to even read. good luck

in anceint times, people tied up a goat in the the town square and blamed it for all their problems. then they killed it, and thats where we get scapegoat from
