    hi guys

    i have been working on a project for the last ten years and i am finally at a stage where i can start sharing it with people. i got not one but two 150lbs engines i have attached to to a board that i will hopefully be taking up to a guinness world record land speed record.

    you can see the photos, videos and info at the website. follow the link for more. http://www.jetluge.com.au/

    i would love to hear some feedback.

    p.s. i have already hear the "your mad" type of feedback thanks haha.

    well that is one thing we'll have to wait and see, but just so things are in perspective. that small ride i did was at idle and up about a 10 degree slope. so all i have to do is accelerate... right?

    for those not sure where the afterburners are. they are the two huge tubes wrapped in black heat shielding attached to the back of both engines. yes, they have not fired in any clips yet. i have a couple of other things i need to do with them. i will be posting it all on the blog on my website.

    thanks again for your comments guys
