Master gadget tinkerer Colin Furze is back at it again, and this time, he’s created a jet-powered go-kart called “JetCart”, which is touted as the “most mental kart ever”. It’s diesel / gas powered and has a top speed of 60 miles per hour – possibly faster since he didn’t have a long enough runway to test it on. Continue reading to see it in-action, along with two videos showing how he built the “JetCart”.
So there we have it its done and it flys, Top speed as of yet is around 60mph as you can see in the video but i run out of runway so could be more in it but until i get on a longer runway i won’t know.
Everything works great the starting system worked as plan the fuel system once the main throttle was changed to the air pressure pump edition also worked without fault so if i was to build this all again I’d change nothing.
Yes the chassis flexes a bit and there is low ground clearance but this never reared its head as a problem and did make the handling very good.
The heat shield behind the seat was good enough although i had to change it to stainless as when the jet warms up it expands and can touch the shield so when it was aluminium it actually melted the first layer right through.
