English DIY inventor and YouTube star Colin Furze is a plumber from Lincolnshire. He’s also a man well known to the web for his tenacious shed-based tinker age, childish enthusiasm and inherent disregard for safety.
He has built some incredibly machines within the comfort of his own garage, using nothing more than his own two hands and ingenuity. He is the brains behind the world’s fastest toilet, the world’s fastest mobility scooter, the longest-ever motorbike and a giant fart machine in Dover.
The two gas tanks and recycled fire extinguisher full of diesel (yep, really) work in combination with a leaf blower to power the kart onto a hairy 61mph – slow by the standards of jet-powered things, but mighty fast by kart standards, especially considering there’s no safety measures in place whatsoever. And also because there’s a 12ft long glowstick belching great balls of fire inches away from his head.
Check out the video below of this jet powered rig in action.
