      @Douglas Nixon True, people die every day. Howerver, being cautious and safe doesn't make you a pussy. Especially considering the pressure he must feel to always 1up himself to satisfy and entertain his fans. I would argue that Knowing when to stop something like this takes way more balls than it does to forge ahead disregarding the potential consequences.

      Cleet still has too many Bald Eagles to free at this point to do something so dangerous. He's got plenty on time to do crazy shit for use.

      Do it for Dale!

          DONT USE THIS CAR FOR A FULL ON DRAG CAR. Do research and find the ideal car to start with and go from there. Just do something fun with this car. Lift it, put that Leroy 1.0 motor in it and send it off road.

                              Should be a call out for Ryan and the Fireball Camaro. That being said, should hit up Ryan for how to build it without dying.

                                I've enjoyed watching the journey, even I was questioning operating two engines, forgetting one thing, snatching the engine under the car and launching full thrust over it... yeah, to many things could go wrong! One bad ass engine!!! 👍

                                      maybe you could build a car around a gas turbine like thats used in pulling tractors aka helicopter engine there was a boat built out of one i have yet to find a car but with a jet or a turbine you could build for promotional/show car

                                          If you have the chassis setup to support a large amount of thrust, why not stick a rocket on the back? No need for the driver to control 2 motors, and you can vary the rocket size depending on what you want to do. Just a thought

                                                        Since the gasoline/jet hybrid is no longer feasible how about a gas electric hybrid?

                                                        Tesla Electric launch motors for low end and the LS motor on high end. You'd save wight by using minimal batteries for the electric motors since you've got a powerplant on board to charge them constantly.

                                                            Being cautious and safe doesn't make you a pussy. It's much more difficult to be safe rather than reckless. Especially considering the pressure he must feel to always 1up himself to satisfy and entertain his fans. I would argue that Knowing when to stop something like this takes way more balls than it does to forge ahead disregarding the potential consequences.
