I'M BUILDING A ROLLERCOASTER

How long would it take for 1 car weighing at 600kg or 1,320lbs to make it around a 22.3m loop? What speed would the car have to be going to make it completely around the loop without exceeding 4gs?

Is this a vertical or horizontal (relative to the ground, ie gravity) loop?

@Krumple,
It would be a vertical loop I think, as it would be on a rollercoaster.

You'll need to reconstruct the links. I don't know what constitutes a valid (won't be deleted by a moderator) link at this place.

@markr,
far as I figure, useful links by known posters (not spam, not selling something or other, not bots) are ok. I recognize your username and avatar and the mods probably do too.
