Video: Mach 2 Hampster - Jet powered rc car

Jet Cars' first test run

From their site:

Chris Hulme (age 34) and Brian Sharkey (age 40) are both keen model plane flyers. In the process of building a jet fighter we started to build a jet car powered by a scale gas turbine jet engine which produces around 14lbs of thrust capable of flying a model plane at 230mph. We are now in the build stages of the fastest radio controlled car over a 1/4 of a mile aiming to reach in excess of 180mph true land speed. The car built on a 1/8th scale will break the scale speed of MACH 2.0, twice the speed of sound which we understand has never been achieved before.
