Yes it work but dont have a video yet, will get on making one tomorrow.

It goes decently fast, not like having the real motor in it though. There is an incredible amount of drag in the drive train of the buggy that thrust has to overcome, it does use the buggy disc brakes so I cant let them freewheel without the axles.

Its not as fast as I thought it would be but at the same time I think the pipe length needs to be dialed in.

i'd also suggest a cage around the prop for two reasons 1st being the most important is for safety the 2nd being in case you turn it over so you wont lose a prop. other than that its pretty cool.

Would be nice for the damage protection, I used to have a 40LA on it and it did roll twice and surprisingly is just killed the motor and did not damage the prop at all.

I am a flyer at heart and take all precautions with spinning props and treat this thing as if it were a running airplane on a table.

How far does it jump???
If you could fit a rotor system from a whirly bird to it you could have a buggy track without the jumps and hop around.
