Well let's see they sacrificed a 20'000 dollar car to generate millions in revenue. Hmmm... I don't see anything sucky about that.


How can you not be impressed by the fact that they made that thing in 5 day's and it work's.

It was okay. It looked wierd cause it was all streched out and it didnt really produce the final result they we were all looking for.

And yet we all watched it, So my guess is that the car did exactly what they wanted it to do get viewers and make money.

The reason they didn't go an faster is a very good one.

The front end of the car was lifting up a little, any more thrust/power and the car would have gone airborne, most likely killing Jesse James.

Many fighter pilots talk about this, when you stop using lift, and pure lbs of thrust takes over.

185mph is pretty damn fast especially for someone who's never driven a jet car before, They were shootin fer 200mph and they came close enough fer me.

And besides jet drag cars are boring anyways.
