The dollying stuff is ironically pretty minimal in the video, but still feel free to give it a watch. Check it out here!

Pretty much what I would have said here, instead filling it with this.

I have plans for buil;ding a dolly also, but I would think that thick PVC would prove effecient enough.

I don't want to turn this into a internet connection topic, but I live in Southern Virginia, and to the Washington DC server I was 6,459 download, and 1,151 upload. And I tried downloading his video again, same slowness. I'm just trying to put it in perspective. His server has, for some reason, always been slow for me (other's have complained in the past). So I don't know why it's going slowly for me and not for you and Bryce. Ah well. It's something I've told them about, but if they've since switched and it's quick for everyone, then it's odd. Maybe I'm picking the wrong times to download it? I doubt it though.

I used the Seattle, LA, and San Fransisco servers (Seattle being the closest to my area).

It would actually called a Segue Cut then Atom. You know those annoying two wheel scooters that were supposed to revolutionize the way we traveled? That's a Segway.

Hahahaha, your hyperlink didn't take the "(plumbing)" into account. Well that was good fun. A dolly might be the next thing I build, followed by a jib. I'm getting a new camera before I head off to college, so I'm all about some DIY stuff right now.

I'm talking later years, such as in Dusk til Dawn. I don't think he's still using a wheelchair for Sin City 2

Someone I know stole a wheelchair from a hospital for the purpose of using it as a dolly. I wasn't too happy. Plus the footage was actually pretty mediocre - from that experience, wheelchairs do NOT make good dollies.
