at the top of the loop, the force between the track and the wheels becomes zero when the centripetal acceleration is the same as g g = v^2/R = 9.81 m/s^2 so at the top v = sqrt(R g) now we need the speed at the bottom of the loop that will give us that speed at the top ...

I suspect you mean ∫ dt/(1-7t)^7, u=1-7t so if u = 1-7t then du = -7 dt or dt = -du/7 so we have ∫( -du/7)/u^7 or -(1/7) ∫ u^-7 du -(1/7)(-1/6) u^-6 (1/42) u^-6 + C 1/[42(1-7t)^6] + C
