Specific Building Help
- Orientation of parts - Be sure to check and re-check orientation of blue and gray connectors. If you are unclear of the orientation on one page, go to next page to see what hooks into the pieces in question - this will help you place them correctly.
- Track pieces - Connectors should attach to the track pieces with a firm snap. This will happen each time if you are sure to have each track piece oriented as the page clearly shows before attaching the connectors. If your track pieces keep popping off after you have attached them to the main structure, it is likely you have not "snapped" the connectors onto the correct side of the track.
- Chain - Be sure that your chain is threaded through the track pieces in the proper spots at the top and bottom gears. Chain that is not threaded properly may be too tight and break or bind (you will hear the motor clicking), or be too loose and not pick up the car properly. Your chain may also occasionally get caught on the black Chain Guides. When this happens the chain will stop moving and you will hear the motor clicking. Simply re-position the Chain between the Guides to stop the problem. Also, be sure to count and make sure you have the appropriate number of chain links put together. You may actually get a piece or two more included in the bag than what is called for in the instructions!
- Page 8, Step 4 - the long orange rod that seems to span the 2 level structure is an optical illusion. It is actually made of 2 orange rods. One orange rod goes from the blue connector below and slightly to the right of the #4 (at the bottom of the structure) diagonally up to right to hook into the blue connector on the same side. The 2nd orange rod goes between the yellow connectors on the top part of the structure.
