Default Jet Turbine Golf Cart Video

Hello all,

I'm a newbie here. I just thought I'd share a video of my recently completed turbine powered golf cart.


The cart began life as a 1979 Club Car electric. I installed a 90 horsepower JFS-100 twin spool turboshaft driving the rear wheels through a chain drive system. I had to fabricate a new rear axle with differential and a 2.00 to 1 reduction through a chain drive system, which, combined with the 18.3 to 1 reduction in the engine's planetary gearbox, makes for a top design speed of 80 mph at 64,000 power turbine RPM. So far, I've only had it up to 75, though. I added 1968 Cadillac headlights and 1959 Cadillac reproduction taillights and had a buddy of mine who does auto body work french them in along with the jet intake scoops. Hope you enjoy watching the video as much as I do. Other information on the build including some videos taken during development are online at my myspace page:

Cheers,
Joe

I do not get on here much these days with work and the economy leaving me with little time.

Jow, make sure the speed will not take the wind shield into the cart with you.

I have a 13 year old that will come work for you cheap, probably for free.

Thank you for your effort and our enjoyment of the video. VERY NICE JOB.

I probably should not have shown him this video.

Anyway, again, very nice work.
