JETCAR? It is absolutely amazing. A Jet Car is exactly a car which runs totally with the support of Turbo Jet engine. Usually this car have a very smooth aerodynamic curves like a fighter jet aeroplane to cope with the air resistance or drag when reaching high speed from 300km/h to 700km/h
Most of the Jet Car is used to compete in a drag race on land. Whether in a tarmac, dessert or ice. The drag jet car or well known as dragster use turbo jet engine to help them accelerate faster.
In the desert north of Reno, Nevada, British fighter pilot Andy Green claimed a new world land speed record . His run bested by 74 mph the record set 14 years ago by his boss, Richard Noble. Green pushed Noble’s jet car “Thrust SSC” to 700.661 mph on the first of two timed runs down a 13-mile course, then dashed the other way at 728.008 mph.
Turbo jet provide full thrust through its inner combustion flow. It uses kerosene fuel type or “minyak tanah“.
To understand more about jet engine, above is the diagram of turbojet engines without afterburner and with afterburner. the front part is compressor blades which sucks air into the engine combustion chamber and provide high pressure air for combustion. The More highly pressurized air after burned in combustion chamber will push the turbine to rotate and get out of the engine as the exhaust thrust. The turbine then keep turning the compressor by using the force from the high pressure air from combustion chamber (burner).
A pickup truck with turbo jet engine. wahaha..
Not only cars, superbike also can be fitted with turbo jet. But above picture is just a imaginary design of Hayabusa Superbike powered by jet engine.
