And world beating is 14/15 inversions.
If an inline twist, tower times team  would not hide ¡¡¡

I think the eurofighter with otsr are somewhat painful because, being a much more compact rail transitions and inversions are very hard, but being 4x4 is much better suited to transitions and will not be painful.

Anyone else find the little wheel in the middle directly below the smiler logo quite interesting? I've never seen one of those before - possibly for special effects similar to the seat rotation rails on X2?

Here's my two cents:

Whoever designed that train needs to be shot. I mean, shot right in the face. It looks DREADFUL!
Image
I mean , look at the promotional art! It gives the trains a menacing, experimenting look - as if you are sitting in some lab apparatus. But what do we get instead?
Tacky, (wrong) coloured, basic, not remotely menacing nor actually good looking plain-ass metal.

Artistically, that is probably one of the most horrible looking trains I have ever seen.

That would be the wheel from the other side of the row, just the angle it was taken makes it look as though it was in the middle

No one seems to have mentioned the fact the trains are in a green-screened room... Could this be as part of the TV advert or for other promo images?

I really cannot picture in my mind that chunky blocky carriage going around that tight twisted track yet? Not a fan of the style of the train at all.

... the name was annoying at first, but at least we appreciate it's classic british sarcasm of not being smile-inducing at all. But this?

This won't grow on me at all. I'm the kind of person who has a go at lecturers for writing notes in Comic Sans.
