From Russell Meyer on July 30, 2014 at 8:22 AMB&M did not design the launch system on Hulk, it was created by Universal Creative. The track and trains are B&M, but that launch system (the only high-speed friction launch I can think of) is not B&M.
Thunderbird is the first coaster by B&M where they designed it with a launch.
From Philip Cowley on July 30, 2014 at 11:01 AMThere is a video of the Universal Team working out the launch system. It was kinda basic but it did the job.
