flame thrower!

Smart with 1500 hp jet engine! Best keep the windows open or it will suck the eardrums right out of your head!

He stuck a jet engine in the car and gained an amazing 8MPH gain over a stock 451? That's seriously underwhelming. I didn't see the car do anything in the video that a stock smart couldn't do ... except be a flame thrower and make a lot of noise.

Nice choice of wheels though.

Here's a better video: Still, I bet you're right about Frankensmart Jet.

While jet dragsters hit 300+ mph, I think this one is strictly for entertainment value.

Given the poor aerodynamics of the smart, then open the windows and hatch, plus the jet engine is offset from the center line... I'd be hesitant to even go 90! And I'd sure hate to have a compressor failure with the engine right next to me too!


I note that this is a turboshaft engine not a turbojet... I don't know how much thrust it develops, but I'd expect it to be substantially less than a turbojet.
