You're so wrong it's funny <3
Either way, even IF Stealth was the fastest accelerating Accerlerator (it isn't), the two S&S launched coasters in China are both faster as well.

Kingda Ka does have a lower acceleration than Stealth... But it doesn't feel it. Ka is intense as ****.I am he said:Ben said:^LOL.

Either way, even IF Stealth was the fastest accelerating Accerlerator (it isn't), the two S&S launched coasters in China are both faster as well.
Ok then, lets look at this from a mathematical perspective:
Acceleration = (CHANGE in speed (m/s)) divided by (Time taken (s))
Kingda ka reaches 128mph in 3.5 seconds, 128 mph = 57.2211 m/s
so: 57.2211 divided by 3.5 = 16.3 m/s squared - this is Ka's acceleration.
Stealth reaches 82mph in 1.8 seconds
82mph = 36.7 m/s
so: (36.7 divided by 1.8) = 20.4 m/s squared!
There you have it:
Kingda ka acceleration: 16.3 m/s squared
Stealth acceleration: 20.4 m/s squared
SOLVED!

But plenty of Intamin Accelerators feel more intense than Stealth, so I'm skeptical of the accel claim it makes anyway.
And trust me, the 0-82 in 1.8 that Thorpe advertise is true...the maths works out if you substitute those values in to find the launch length.
Thorpe replaced Stealth's trains which improved the acceleration
but my point was that statistically stealth is faster :--D
Ben said:NEWSFLASH, THIS JUST IN.
Kingda Ka is not the only other Acclerator in the World... *shock* So, even IF Stealth accelerates faster than Ka, that does not mean it's the fast accelerating one in the World. Xcelerator and Storm Runner are two that come to mind as being faster accelerations.
Xcelerator - 0-80 in 2.3 seconds, Stormrunner - 0-72 in 2 seconds.
And it's widely accepted that the claim Thorpe made about "increasing" the acceleration, was ****. The "2 seconds", "1.8 seconds" "3.5 seconds" etc that parks feed out are very, VERY flimsy pieces of evidence in this sort of discussion. You need other evidence. And even "I've been on it" evidence is more water-tight than what the parks feed out, really.
It's cute how much you want it to accelerate faster though as some sort of desperate attempt to make Stealth seem better <3 Might as well say that blue and white are nicer colours than green for all the weight it would hold.
I dont really care about Stealth, my point was that it has a faster rate of acceleration than Ka, which I have proven.
And trust me, the 0-82 in 1.8 that Thorpe advertise is true...the maths works out if you substitute those values in to find the launch length.
Then surely the "original" launch was mathmatically impossible?
If the values the parks give are wrong, then you're saying every accelerators stats are wrong, including Ka's?
Especially since they advertise it as going to 80mph, not 82.
2mph makes a ignorable difference when calculating acceleration.
Thorpe replaced Stealth's trains which improved the acceleration
They really didn't.
but my point was that statistically stealth is faster :--D
But, your point was wrong. And getting wronger by the second.
According to the stats that parks give out, and the maths, yes, Stealth is 'more intense'. Thing is? It's not. By any stretch of the imagination. Even ignoring the fact the numbers your using aren't quite accurate.I am he said:Unless you can prove my point wrong using maths, there is no point arguing. I could make many claims, but the difference is I have actually backed mine up using evidence - you can not provide any mathematical evidence.
My origional point was (If you go back and read my comment) Stealth has a faster rate of acceleration than Ka, nothing else, I also said i thought it had the second fastest in the world, I mentioned one in Asia that had a faster acceleration.
If you don't make some quick calculations now and prove me wrong, there is no point in replying.
Ok, I really don't see the point in arguing if you think the data is incorrect...I can only use the stats the parks give...If you think they are all lies, than to whichever one is faster is anyone's guess.Ben said:Haha.
Your maths is based on incorrect data though, so why should I believe it?
I've already told you there's actually three S&S coasters in Asia that are faster, but, you just skipped over that.
Your maths is dodgy and incorrect, since it is based on incorrect values to start with. I can't do the maths to prove it to you because we DON'T have that data. Sorry if the amount of letters instead of numbers in my post meant that you couldn't process it <//3

Joey said:I don't understand why a longer launch track would increase intensity.
The taller drop towers are often less intense.

I just thought I'd point out, even if you use Stealth's origional 0-80 in 2.3 seconds, It still comes out just as fast as Ka.
