Haha, no point for me wasting time on cadding when its the building that will make the run. the hardest bit is getting someone who can fill the tube. and that bit is fixed.

You found a Mexican restaurant with 300 guests the evening???  :-D

There may actually be a place called Fart Propulsion Laboratories, huh?

I'm remiss in not having got back to the Swedes to thank them fore the kind invitation they made -- for me and Nancy to visit during Speedweekend on Ice 2011.  Unfortunately we couldn't make the trip - but I am honored that they felt we might have something to offer by attending.

And maybe they would have let me take a run or two. . . :-o :-D

The 500hp jet kick was testing today, it made 148 kmh- approx 90 mph.

 I started my 500cc Hybrid bike and she is just begging for NOS to help her up to 200 kmh.
The death sled is still not certain of being ready for a start up, much press from the big sponsor EKTK, but little time to complete. maybe i can fix it when i sacrifice my lunch breaks at work.

Seldom seen Slim- theres always another year to come and watch over your ancestors in Sweden. They hope to put on a good show this year , and weather permitting , next year too.

Yesterday we got our 100% home built jet kick running, we have sorted out lots of bugs in the system from last year so we are fairly confident that it will take us all the way to the finish line this year.

Hopefully we can give the "500hp" jet kick team a good race.

This project is rather like the Mobacken boys steam kick, but my idea only runs on 200 Bar compressed air, so its a bit safer. The logo on the side is an idea for a SPONSOR , so if anyone wants their name or advert here , please get in touch. This project has already been accepted by Peter the LSR.se testing guy, so no worries in getting it through the test.
Forgot to draw the parachute. Can anyone reckon out what maximum hole exhaust size i can have  to make a 2 km run before it conks out ?

did you use autocad or solidworks for your draft?

Being that, in Canada, we do have lakes that freeze over, the whole idea of racing on ice is interesting!.... There are lakes not far from me that would be ideal candidates on which to run... trouble is though... the people could turn into real Bonneville people....

Now, as far as the picture goes... joking aside... are we running a jet engine here?.... I do know that there is potentially enough radiant energy in the exhaust to mess up the course for the next competitor.... or if you have a mishap, for it to give you a sinking feeling....
