Well, not off at all, if that part is designed to be nearly vertical. :)

Having problems with lateral Gs in the 0g roll and the corkscrew. Left side fails the test on the 0g roll and the right side fails the test on the corkscrew, even though both go the same direction.

^ Oh somewhat looks like "Manta" because of a long MCBR and low turns! (Flat Spin included!) :)

NEW PROJECT!!!!! This time we've got a Gravity Group hybrid. Inspired by Voyage, Ravine Flyer II and the Jungle Trailblazers.
It's got a lot of ridiculous airtime.

A twister section

And a (pretty clearly) yet to be supported flat spin / corkscrew thing.

I'd keep the supports as they are on the corkscrew. It adds a nice "headchopper" effect

Change the wood color. It looks like a varnished dresser. Otherwise, what you have so far should work. Gravity Group corkscrews appear to have lats at the entrance and exits with a snap over the top where I'm presuming they want to minimize upsidedown time.

Also why is your transfer track and storage area not horizontal?

^ Better question is why is the transfer track the first set o brakes?
What are these for?

The transfer track was pretty much a temporary thing to measure what the minimum length is that I need the transfer to be to fit the large train. I just threw it in where it went to get that part done with.

The supports are gonna end up being steel, so that's why the color looks so out of place.
