  • 6:00 the car wont drive straight ... he is forgetting the rear wheels will be peeling out from the engine , so the tires wont have the normal grip he is expecting from rolling wheel set ups normally used in jet cars .... they have never done this , and it really shows ... MAKE THIS CAR INTO A GIANT RC CAR then test it at the track , BEFORE ! YOU PUT A HUMAN INSIDE , DON'T SAY NOBODY WARNED YOU ! ... i have tested rc cars like this on my channel for YEARS ! ... its no longer a jet car , its no longer a drag car , its a THRUST plus WHEEL powered car now , and its a whole new ball game ... (read my other comment , and CONTACT ME) - J from Jet Noise Huge Motors

  • Cleetus, in the Army Aviation world, the rotory wing shaft turbines run on JP8. It is basically a lower grade and slower burning version of Diesal I believe. If your in a pinch at the track, this my be a viable option. The main difference of a jet turbine vs. a shaft turbine, is a power unit is added to the aft end of the engine right after thrust. The thrust turns another set of turbine blades that are connected to a shaft that is inserted into a "gear box". So essentially remove the power unit, you now have a jet engine. Love your channel. Avid viewer and always look forward to your shennanagans. Stationed in S Korea!

  • Did you guys think about what happens, at launch, when the LS engine is dominant in power. According to my logic, the car would squat, therefore the angle of the jet engine would change from 1° downwards, to a couple degrees upwards. It would produce lift on launch and the early part of the pass. Thus decreasing grip and more importantly stability. Larson might not have thought about that because typically a jetcar doesn't have a combustion engine. Maybe you should point the jet engine a couple of degrees downwards.
