I don't see anything strange with those brakes. Maybe the one on the track on the right need to be put in place like those on the one on the left.

Nothing wrong with the brakes in the photo.. They don't have all the mechanisms underneath installed so that brakes are just sitting in the closed position. Once track is installed they will install all the mechanical stuff that operates the brakes. I am wondering if all the brakes are going to be pneumatic or if maybe there will be a set of magnetic.. I haven't seen any magnetic brakes yet but they may just not be here..
Photos came out pretty good hope everybody is enjoying the coverage.. I love it, I like to see how, and what they do.. More soon

As far as mags go, I don't think there'll be any. I don't believe any B&M flyers have mag brakes on it.

Actually, I take that back. Tatsu has a small set of mag brakes.

Florida Thrills posted an update here. On page two there is a photo of the beginning of the lift. Those anti-rollbacks are with wheel launchers, I wonder why...

Hmm. Interesting.

Never seen B&M mix drive tires with a lift.
