Self Built Jet Powered Go Kart


Ever wonder what will happen if you strap a large RC jet engine to a go-kart! In this video I do exactly that and the results were nothing short of spectacular!

I had this idea for a really long time I’ll ago but I was originally going to use a homemade turbojet that I was going to build, however, the weight of this, the sheer size held me back from building it, also it didn’t look really pretty.I tried to keep it very compact, light and extremely simple, I think I succeeded.

As for performance it was pretty insane the acceleration from 0 to 20 was kind of slow but as soon as you had 20 miles per hour it’s a constant push once you hit 40 the push feels four times as strong and it starts getting scary really fast.


I’m totally going to set this up on a nice smooth stretch of road soon to see what kind of top speed I can hit, or at least see how it feels at higher speeds.Warped Perception
