Issues with 10261 Rollercoaster and Power Functions
Has anyone has issues with trying to get the Creator Rollercoaster 10261 to run smoothly with power functions. Ive built mine and seems to work fairly well manually but once I try connect the M motor it seems to run smoothy a couple of rotations round but then seems to encounter issues. The cars either jolt on the main hill, but the worst issue is the first wheel at the top of the climb. This sometimes seems to cause the car to stick at the top of the climb and almost cause the whole mechanism to stick and creates the most dreadful grinding noises. Ive tried loosening some of the gears, but keep encountering the same issues. As I say its fine manually, but this only seems so obvious when the M motor is connected. Anyone got any fixes?? Its as if the M motor is not poweful enough to run the coaster.
Also having difficulties with trying to get the mechanism that propels the cars from the station to actually work at all. It moves the cars forward but doesnt seem to have enough power to actually get the cars to the bottom of the climb.
What am I doing wrong or are these just ‘issues’ with the design? Ive watched videos online and the coaster seems to run as smoothly as anything in these.
