    Default 0 - 240 mph in 6.6 seconds

    To watch a Jet propelled car go from 0-240mph in 6.6 seconds at PVS was AWSOME... anyone else see it

    Yep - it was absolutely awesome (and that's a word I don't use very often! lol)

    I even got a sweeeeeeeet picture of it! When it was on the start line I was tracking it from the start line to get a good panning shot (as I knew it would be passing by somewhat quickly!! ). I could not believe how quick it was off and approaching me (half-way down the track) - and the noise as it passed!!!

    Will post the pic up shortly.

    You missed the second run then Spoons? It did 260mph in 6.3 secs, and this is with some problems that do not allow them to run at full pelt!!!!

    With a bill of roughly £1500 per run, i don't expect they get mch testing in either!

    Yep, I missed the second run, but I did hear it from afar....

    Totally mad, what pressure this car must put on the human body - just amazing.. How the hell it stays on the road ??

    Can you imaging being on the salt flats watching the land speed record - WOW

    Love the Jet car - introduced our youngest (the quiet one from this weekend!!) to it last year, and he was blown away by it. This year he was very proud to be able to initiate his two friends to the way of the Jet, and made sure they were clinging onto the front railings as it screamed past. It hits you in the chest like a punch from a heavyweight, I LOVE IT!!!!

    I guess you don't so much drive it as hang on and pray!!

    The most fun you can have in a little over six seconds!!!!
