The YouTube Inventor Colin Furze known for his mildly deranged mechanical creations has again something very impressive a turboJet powered scooter.
This project hich has already racked up more than 2 million views, sees him enthusiastically race a turbo-powered scooter – sans safety equipment – down an uneven track at 40mph.Watch the video from colinfurze for more info:
The Jet is alive and sounds and looks AMAZING!!So the turbo is at fastturbo to get some new seals n bearings then once back I need to try work out how to afterburner this bad boy.
Furze documents the manufacturing process leading up to the daring test drive aboard the turbo scooter, fashioned from an old BMX bike.The extra work comes in the fact the engine is 2 separate pieces ,the flame tube and the housing. making these fit together nicely takes a little more time than just rolling sheet metal pulse-jet style.
