    Inversion tracks will cause problems with some vehicles.  There are three reasons Inversion tracks may cause problems.

    The first and most common problem is the speed of the vehicle.  If the vehicle is not fast enough, it may fail to complete the Inversion and fall off of the track.

    The second reason is fairly common, some vehicle bodies extend too far forward and lift the pickup shoes off of the track, or extend to far back and lift the drive wheels off of the track.  Formula I style vehicles tend to have the first problem.

    The third reason is also fairly common, some vehicles do not have strong enough traction magnets to maintain attraction with the track.

    The fourth reason is not as common, but some vehicles do not have enough flexibility to maintain traction through the loop sections.   AFX Big Rigs suffer from this problem with or without their trailers.  The mud flaps will drag and lift the drive wheels off of the track.
