Creative Inventor Throws A Jet Engine On The Back Of An Average Go-Kart
May 17, 2015
His latest invention is an absolutely crazy looking, jet-powered go-kart that he himself describes as "the most mental kart ever." He had to make a few adjustments during the build in order to ensure stability and to get the fuel system working properly. As of now, this kart has a top speed of around 60 m.p.h. but Furze thinks it might have gotten even faster had he not run out of track to drive on.
Colin Furze is an inventor and stuntman from Stamford, U.K. who has become famous for his YouTube videos featuring his inventions. He generally does one or more videos taking the viewer through the building process, as well as videos showcasing the finished product. Furze actually dropped out of school at 16 to become a plumber, which he continued to do until he was invited by Sky1 to be an expert on "Gadget Geeks." His most famous video is his build of a set of custom, retractable claws inspired by Wolverine from the "X-Men" comics/films.
