    i think it might be hard to drive that car with a scuba tank attached to it

    RE: Turbine powerd car

    technically thats jet propelled not jet powered, jet powered would mean the turbine powered the wheels [&:] (i love to be awkward )
    If I had a signature, it would be good.

    nothing wrong with trying something different.

    one day you'll probably be able to buy a RTR jet turbine RC car at an affordable price....

    RE: Turbine powerd car

    Surely it couldn't really do 100mph+? It didn't look like it had that much thrust for the weight of the car even without the cannister on it, which probably weighs a fair bit I'd have thought... It didn't even move without giving it a lot of juice it seemed and he seemed to hold it back pretty easily...

    RE: Turbine powerd car

    That speed is possible. With a turbine you dont get off the line power. The top speed is accomplished by the reduced friction in the drive train and removing the limitation of rpms from the weed eater engine.

    RE: Turbine powerd car

    Yeah, I was thinking that actually, having given it some more thought... I guess it'd need a bit of a run up to get some speed up though? And I don't see how thay'll mount that canister, be interesting to see how this pans out, they might need a bigger car though!

    I just watched a turbine plane video (it came up after watching the Revo v Raptor vid) and that was pretty damn cool, though I guess you'd have to be very careful with one of them and the lack of terrain could mean lack of variation, though it could also be a plus point I suppose, I loved the flying in Mario 64!

    It should easily hit 100+mph, just won't do it instantly turbines need time to fully reach top potential...its one of the biggest things that takes getting used to when flying a turbine plane is the delay in power that you don't have with a gasoline or nitro engine, not to mention to room needed for flight...we fly the turbines only at the salt flats here along with the extreme prop planes cause our local clubs runway isn't long enough for takeoff's, some need well over 400feet of runway..I'm not too sure though a rc car would be able to have control at the speeds a turbine can provide or what would really happen when the turbine reached max thrust output...could be a disaster, most likely would be I'd say. Better choice of car would be a f1 maybe...or use the turbine to power a gear box and control speed via gear ratio.

    Here's some onboard video of a turbine plane and some others.

    RE: Turbine powerd car

    If you guys ever get a chance to attend a rc jet show do it. I have attended twice, the jet show in Metropolis Illinois (home of Super Man.) The planes are amazing, everything from huge 1/4 (I am assuming the size) and larger, down to something like 1/8. They have some ducted fan, which is cool, but the turbine jets are crazy. They have, too scale military jets that are right down to the rivets real. And then they also have the experimental jets. When you see an SR-71 Blackbird coming for a fly by, it looks like the real thing. And as it passes you hear the roar of the dual turbines pushing it up to altitude, you can only imagine what the real thing would be like. Of course crashes are cool to, hehe, but very expensive and usually involve a grown man crying.

    New turbine engine is around $2500 to $5000 depends on size, the planes vary alot...turnkey jets are complete ready to run just about for around $7000+ depends if its new or not...I don't know of any turbine cars...cars or trucks anyhow that are ready built for a turbine.

    RE: Turbine powerd car

    i seen somewhere that a guy made one on an on-road 1/5 car and the power went to the wheels instead of just pushing it. ther is also a company that makes a special turbine for rc helicoptors that coms with a unit so the turbine spins a shaft....could be modified for a car i would assume.

    Hey badz have you seen this jet claims..100-120 mph.. check out the video... its only battery powered using a brushless motor

    planes $170... about $450 complete plus a radio system

    Yeah those are small ducted fan types, they fly well at lower altitudes...here in utah they are pretty crappy, basically just cars with wings on hehe....alotta prop jets can easily hit 120mph..I got a Cermark F-16 prop jet does 120+ pretty easy. Think I paid little over $350 for the plane it runs a os91 nitro comes in around $1000 total for everything, servo's/tuned pipe/reciever/plane and landing gear
