    But at the same time, YOU (yes, actually you!) don't generally have either the engineering degree/skills or the computer programs to be able to know that your average casualty death rates stay beneath that margin. So you have to do your best with what you must work, and sometimes that means sacrificing originality in a place where originality isn't all that necessary in order to convey realism.

    You're never going to please everyone, particularly people who are way too nitpicky in relatively minor areas. Just go with whatever you like. :)

    A113, I think his drop supports are fine. Because if you look here, http://www.rcdb.com/4253.htm?p=23265. You will see that Diamondback has almost no drop supports at all.

    Thats true, but that point in the track has quite a bit of deflection when the train goes over it. Simply putting a support in that place would eliminate a potential hazard. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6KnRKwHW7bA. Watch for it at 0:36.

    ^The track spine is thicker in that section, and it's made to "bounce" forwards and back like that.

    Ok, it just seems like adding a support wouldnt be too much to ask?

    ^I don't see anything wrong with the way it's currently setup. Every track will flex somewhat, even if it is in the mm range.

    Yeah that makes sense, but it's still possible, and it can work that way.
