Death Wishes: Guy Builds Jet Engine Powered Go-Kart

May 15, 2015


Heck yeah, no helmet or seat belt! Helmets and seat belts are for sissies who have never dreamed the dream of living a life in bed eating out of a tube.

This is a video of Colin Furze (previously: his 50MPH baby carriage, Wolverine claws, Pyro flamethrowers and Magneto boots) and his homemade jet engine powered go-kart. The kart is capable of reaching speeds up to 60MPH. Wait -- only 60MPH?! They already make gas-powered go-karts that can do over 150MPH. I expected a jet-powered cart to at least be able to do 300MPH, and ideally be able to time travel.

Keep going for a video of the kart in action.

Thanks to NR, who always gets kicked out of the go-kart track for intentionally ramming the other racers. Same here, buddy, same here.

    You guys know its not a jet engine or anything like that, its just a couple propano tanks armed into a skinny exhaust to get -forge-red- color. The engine is a 50cc one on the side... Shame on him

  • Dysan

    No, that was a leaf blower to start the pulse jet engine. It's not a "normal" jet engine like on planes. see here for another example.

  • Rusty Shackleford

    I can understand the proof of concept but kinda of pointless, Excessive heat, lack of safety... Why not just drive a really quck go cart

  • Zachary Zarko

    He was thoughtful to wear his best tie while testing the cart. If he had died, he would have been ready to go straight into a casket.

    I'm more shocked he had no body protection at all.

  • disqus_k2QxOV9H7Z

    I'm starting to think that he have some sort of invulnerability/regeneration power or extreme luck. With all he had done I still don't see scars on his face or missing body parts.

    Still not fast enough, GOD DAMN YOU ACME!

  • Meh

    His creation just became so much more awesome seeing him lose his mind using it! What a guy!

  • Adibobea9

    I think he lost his mind when he decided to make it…

  • GeneralDisorder

    So you're saying it wasn't when he built the 125cc mobility cart that hit 75 mph? it wasn't the 125 cc pram (in 'Murica we call that a baby carriage)? It wasn't the ice bike? (that's a bicycle with ice instead of tires) It wasn't the jet kettle? It wasn't the hydroformed suit of armor he used to stand inside a firework display? Not the X hundred other things this guy did for his YouTube channel?

    If I throw a mushroom into the fuel tank will it get a speed boost?
    Will it play the first Pink Floyd album?
    The world may never know...
