Stuntman builds jet-powered sled that could reach a terrifying 311mph
Australian Daz Fellows began working on his street luge last year, and it has already undergone various road and wind tunnel tests. The luge is 9.84ft (3 metres) long from nose to tail and is fitted with two jet thrusters.
At full power, the turbines produce 200lbs (91kg) of thrust each, and afterburners on the tail add an extra 35 per cent to 43 per cent thrust. Fellows hopes to beat the current world record of 115.83 mph (186km/h) by reaching 311mph (500km/h).
