Hi Wayne. unfortunately SCTA does not allow jetcars on the lakes or Bonneville. your bet bet is exhibition at NHRA, monster truck shows etc. I had a J34 powered car for a while, great fun!

Sorry Wayne but no class for your truck. To be able to run at SCTA your motor must drive the wheels.

Asking questions is one's only way of getting answers. As a young boy I was always taught that there is no such thing as a stupid question. It suggests that the quest for knowledge includes failure, and that just because one person may know less than others they should not be afraid to ask rather than pretend they already know. In many cases multiple people may not know but are too afraid to ask the "stupid question"; the one who asks the question may in fact be doing a service to those around them.

 Sure does look like a big build !!!! What motor is that ? Looks alot bigger than the ones used in all the show off cars that run in NHRA !!! I know you can't run stock glass in NHRA or IHRA  sanctioning bodies ! Look into some info , on Art Arfons old toys !!!! He was the man at the aviation motors !!!!

Heck, since it can run on #1 or #2 diesel, run it at DHRA or NADM diesel drag events.  www.dhraonline.com or www.runNADM.com

The way things are going, they should let you run it street class.  grin

I don't think it's a photoshop.  I think it's the product of a very sick mind.

I like it!   grin

The Pick A Part jet Truck runs about 168 MPH and has the same engine that you have. I would check with Bob Vance at Pick a Part with questions. I would think NHRA and air shows is where you will find your place to run. That is where we run our jet funny car

I'd lose the high mount brake light - anything following that close will have bigger worries than if you're coming to a stop.

If Allison makes a turboshaft version of that engine and you hook it up to your transmission or rear end, you could run it in the omega class, but check the safety rules. My build is based around using 2 much smaller turbine engines with the thrust of both collected and merged into a "Y" pipe hooked up to a tubineshaft PTO that i will probably order from Allison. Good luck, i'd like a picture with that truck if you can brring it out and run it.

What a lovely engine. Gotta be pretty early as it stinks of Frank Whittle. Many years ago I bought a DeHavilland Ghost engine, as fitted to Venom and Vampire fighters, and the doomed Comet airliner. I think it was 1954? I paid 250 for it and thought it would be quite small. Wrong. The starter on the top was level with my eyes (I'm 5' 8") and the jetpipe was @3' diameter. I never did get around to firing it up, but I actually fell in love with that motor, until I bought a brand new, still in the box, Merlin.
You have good taste Sir!

  Maybe you could get a missfired bunker busting bomb [ the front part designed to bust through concrete with no explosives in it]
and mount it on the front of truck, then use a long steel cable for the parachute line.
  This will enable you to be winched out of the middle of floating mountain with little damage to truck and make adjustments for next run tongue

             JL222 cheers

 P.S. don't foget the streamlined fuel trailer with blowoff hitch
