Take a serious inventory of your financial situation right now, because you may just have to have this jet-engine powered custom-crafted go-kart.
First test run of the Boeing Jet kart with the new nozzle. Burning in the nozzle paint as well. So far the new nozzle exceeds my expectations with great flow and heat dissipation. The thrust pattern seems to be tightly concentrated and pushing power has increased. Afterburner might be in the works next. This jet kart is FOR SALE.. Many types and styles of gas turbine engines are for sale. Custom fabrication and engineering services. Turbine powered vehicle design and installation.
The kart is said to reach speeds of over 160km/h, propelled by more than 90kg of thrust from a reclaimed Boeing 502-7 gas turbine engine that the kart features spun aluminium fuel cells, a digital speedometer, a new N1 gas producer tachometer (which indicates turbine RPMs) and an auxiliary start kit.
Kettleman is currently working on a new exhaust nozzle that he claims should further increase the top speed, and has offered to build an afterburner for the new owner — mostly just for the flames and smoke it would produce.
