When I saw (coolest hybrid ever) I skipped right over this tread until I saw it was posted by Rob Keller. I thought to myself (that guys crazy I better take a look.) I was not disappointed.

That is way too cool. I bet it won't be long before dmv comes up with something to nail him with.
I can only imagine what sitting in front of that intake must sound like.

Read down to the bottom Mikey they are on the lines of terrorism



the alternate thread title would have been :

"Fire Under Arse"

I wonder if you can bake Brownies in there too???

That is not as radical as it may seem. The engine used is not designed to provide a massive amount of thrust as a traditional jet engine would. It is designed to function with a mechanical transmission to drive helicopter blades. If you look real close that afterburner is just sheet metal and is for wow factor only, it would never hold up under the thrust of a true after burner application. There is no way the beetle could keep stationary under a full after burner load of a traditional jet engine designed for thrust. The engine in the beetle is the same engine that unlimited hydroplanes use and they drive a prop, do not rely on thrust. This guy obviously has a lot of time on his hands and large sum of expendable excess income IMO.

Sooo it's basically just a realllllyyy expensive flame thrower? I thought he actually did utilize some thrust to make it haul bootay That's a shame.

well that makes a bit more sense, i didn't think the engine would have enough air to work properly. i would think that the driver would have his arm pinned to the screen from the suction.

That is all it is, no connection to the drive wheels and not enough thrust to propel it to any great speed, just a big bunch of WOW factor. I'm sure it puts out a little thrust, maybe several hundred pounds, but that after burner is pure garbage. If you look at the flame coming out of the exhaust there is no shock wave in it. Ever see the flame from a fighter jet in full after burner, it has several diamond shaped shock waves in it?

A couple of things come to mind. The noise level has to be unbareable with the volume of air that is being sucked by your right side. Also, there is no by pass air around the compressor/combustion area, so it can only be operated a very short time. And last, I dont under stand how the afterburner can work without blowing fire out both ends. It is just too restrictive for a functioning afterburner. I dont have a PHD in Mechanical engineering, but do have 6200 hours in supersonic jets and have studied a little about jet propulsion.

If I remember correctly the engine for helicopter use has a high pressure rear compressor spool missing that a true turbojet has. That is what equals thrust. He mentions modifying the engine to jet use. That probably means adding that bogus looking pseudo afterburner.

I don't know who this guy is trying to fool with that contraption. Maybe that nose picking cop .

That's quite a letdown then, just a fancy flamethrower attracter is all it is but definately a WOW factor indeed for someone taking the time to actually make that work. Sort of reminded me of when they altered a Celica on Monster Garage to accept a jet engine except that it actually did provide real thrust. I doubt that'll be cruising on the streets though
