Rocket-powered karts!

Rocket Karts is a cool page featuring rocket-powered go-karts. The one shown is "Captain Jack" McClure's Turbonique-powered go-kart. This used the bigger 1500 lb motor and would hit 215 mph in the quarter mile.The site speculates that these karts might have led to the NHRA ban on Turbonique. (link found on Rocketry Planet)
