I think the piping is too far away from the seat, he should probably move the two closer together lol

I've been close to one of those pulse jets. You have no idea of how loud they are.

58 MPH??? For a Fuckin' jet? That's a lot of wasted heat and energy just to go slightly faster than a moped.

Hotter than fuck and a lot of work for 58 mph... could probably reach that speed with a snowblower engine... but then again, it wouldn't be a jet..

That's why you don't see pulse jet driven airliners

He spent more energy telling us how awesome he was than the jet had for propulsion.
