Eh, for some reason, tumbleweeds gather at our house during high winds. Where they come from, who knows? That Mazda should be honored that it's so loved by these random critters.

That lift hill is going to be steep, judging by that lift piece thingie.

I think that it'll be a steeper than normal lift, which'll be cool on a flyer

Cold!? By my standards it's never cold in the Los Angeles area. :)

Have I mentioned how awesome donkeys are?

It was 37F last night, that's darn cold enough for me! Saturday was pretty bad too, the winds were cool during the day, but then at night it just got worse and we were all cursing the stupid thin pants that Magic makes their employees wear. Oddly enough, Sunday wasn't that bad, even after it got dark.

Alana's father was in town today and he did some pretty interesting math. The first picture is a photo of the beginning of the lift hill for "Shakira". (I borrowed this from Eric's most recent TR. Thanks Eric)

The second picture is from Robb & Elissa's most recent "Tatoo" update.

If you do the math in opposite directions. One for standard track & one for inverted track you can see that both of the lift hills are roughly 45 degrees.

In conclusion, It apears that this thing will be hella steep. Like "Shakira".

That should make for a fun lift ride up.

^^ i changed my mind, after i posted that i realized that the peice was not level to the ground... it does actually look quite steep.

You're also not looking directly at it, but rather on an angle. But it does look steep anyway.

^That's why we did 3 different calculations on the peice of "Tatsu" track. As you move more toward paralell in a picture, that angle would tend to get steeper.

Without actualy seeing the piece of track. Alana's father thinks that it is possible to be as steep as 52 degrees.

I don't know about that... but I do know that "Shekra's" lift is real steep. You may even be pulling a full G going up it. :lol:
