There's been a good bit of talk comparing the lap bars on the trains recently. Riding Storm Chaser, Twisted Timber, Cyclone, Vengeance (and Lightning Run if you want to include that) all within a month I couldn't notice the difference.

Does someone have pictures to show the different design? They all seemed the same to me.

The big difference is how the lap bars appear to be anchored at the front of the car. The "older" style trains have an anchor on either side of your legs like a regular old U-shaped lap bar. The "newer" ones (Twisted Timbers, Steel Vengeance) have a single anchor in the center and they're kind of like a fat T-shaped lap bar (V-shape? Y-shape?).

Last june i was finally able to ride my first RMC (Wildfire), because in Europe there is only one right now.
But Wildfire did the job. What an impressive ride in an awesome location. And it even gets better in the dark and in the rain.
Than the trains are atleast 4 seconds faster around the track.

Next year I will be able to ride a couple more RMC's, Like Steel Vengeance, Lightning Rod, Storm Chaser, Twisted Timbers and the RMC conversion of Robin Hood.

Up till now Wildfire is my overall #1, but I think both Steel vengeance and Lightning Rod will be able to claim that spot.

Bold = new this year.
Edited to bump Railblazer up a few places after riding it and Twisted Colossus a few weeks apart

1. Steel Vengeance: Probably the most complete, well-rounded, and thrilling--not just RMC--but coaster I've ever ridden and it comes damn close to being my #1 overall. None of the others can match this layout or have the kind of sustained ejector air this one packs.
2. Medusa Steel Coaster
3. Wicked Cyclone
4. Outlaw Run
5. Twisted Timbers: The most intense and aggressive RMC. That ought to be enough to put it near the top, but the layout and ebb/flow of the pacing doesn't quite do it for me.
6. Railblazer: A whirlwind of abrupt airtime and intensity with surprisingly comfortable and fun-to-ride trains. It's too brief to rank higher, but could scarcely be any better at this size/length.
7. Twisted Colossus
8. Iron Rattler
9. New Texas Giant
10. Joker
11. Goliath: The only one I didn't like. It's honestly not even in my top 20 wooden coasters. Sure the airtime is very good, but it has none of the other qualities I look for like strong positive g's or a complex layout with clear, linear pacing. It was also uncharacteristically rough for an RMC when I rode it.

1. Storm Chaser - the most recent RMC in my collection. This is more what I was expecting from an RMC. I liked it notably more than the other three.
2. Outlaw Run
3. New Texas Giant
4. Goliath
