Ok, so while on line for this ride at Hershey Park, one gets to read: "12.0 ton coaster weight" "2.5MW" electric launch About 208KW / Ton 0-72MPH, in "less than 2 seconds" Storm Runner Front Seat POV 2014 FULL HD Hershey Park - YouTube Tesla PD's 2.3 ton 0.45MW (w/"L") About 195Kw / Ton 0-60, in 2.8-3.0 seconds Dig deeper, and you find the coaster gives an equivalent 5MW launch, aided by nitrogen gas and oil compression ( Top tech roller coasters | Network World ). "When we designed Storm Runner, we were looking to design a linear induction motor system, but we did the calculations and we were going to turn the lights on and off in Hersheypark," Bachmann says. "What we ended up doing is knocking the power consumption down by half by using nitrogen gas and oil to launch the 12-ton trains." Pretty neat, that weight/power between the car and the coaster aren't that far apart. We chopped a second, from the P85 and 85D. All we need for another, is some nitrogen, oil and traction :biggrin:.
