A go kart that really goes

Recommended Posts

@Mike A

That's interesting. Back in the late 80’s I met a fellow in Hesperia, CA that was an expert in those motors and was building a helicopter with pulse nets on the tips of the rotos. He had a built chopper in his garage and also some of the jets on test stands. He fired one up and it was amazingly loud. 

I thought this was the same guy but the one I met was apparently more famous but died from cancer in 1994. His family took up the business.

Here’s an article I found on the guy I met.
