Draken is now testing:



Interesting to note that this seems to be using the old B&M restraints instead of the newer vest restraints.

Yeah B&M continues to go back and forth with those restraints... I wonder why that is. I honestly don't prefer one over the other. I think they're both nice.

Probably because of the clearances between the track and supports that B&M thought would be much more convenient for them if left alone instead of recalculated for the larger clearance envelope of the newer restraints?

It's essentially a Griffon clone but it's not an exact clone. There are some differences in the track design.

That entrance is pretty cool, also it's neat how the second immelman is practically in the parking lot.
