I am guessing Claude and Walter used computers as the transitions etc are way to smooth to have been done entirely by hand. (bu that's just a guess).

Moose, I am hoping you know that I was joking about Walter and Claude using plywood cutouts to engineer their transitions...I think you did.
Interesting stuff, I liked the long straight-away after the two loops on Demon when I rode it on the Midwest Tour, the tunnel was epic! It'd be cool with two airtime hills there instead of two loops though.
