Moonshine motor (updated)

Update: Someone on TRF pointed out that the flight motor may have been a RATTWorks Tri-bid.  That actually makes a lot of sense to me.  If so, they may or may not have used their hooch. Skeptics. They will ruin yer fun every time. :)

In between watching the other new episodes of Rocket City Rednecks (beer can IED armor, DIY exto-skeleton armor, and one I haven't seen yet), I snapped a shot of the moonshine motor's combustion chamber/nozzle unit.  Mounted on it's tree stump test bed. Yeehaw.

I think we're going to see a lot of rockets on this show.  The 'Ironman" suit's weapons unit is a multi-rocket launcher.  The rockets resembled Estes Quarks.
