Wow - if you added a windscreen and a heater that could be a nice little vehicle.

Actually.... you might not need a heater ;o)

LOL that is cool.

Colin Furze has been putting pulse jets on things for over 15 years.
He teaches how to build pulse jets and each one gets crazier than the last.
Furze channel: colinfurze - YouTube

My problem with these jets, is that white hot glow.
Can you imagine the heat?
I would be terrified of a meltdown.
"Chernobyl Kart"




Furze has built all kinds of wild and whacky vehicles
(he holds the world speed record for Fastest Dodg'em Car (Bumpercar)!!
Hes put pulse jets on Carts, Bicycles, Drift Trikes, TukTuk...

And they don't seem to have a problem locating the gas bottles right next to it.

hahaha you're right!

I'm scared of my propane bottle next to my BBQ.
Furze has two big bottles sitting right next to that glow! lol


...
reminds me of a show I watched a few years back from McLaren about the design and build of their F1 car.
They showed the tungsten (I think) exhaust...when it gets full hot, it turns white/transparent.
You could see inside it. Its wild!

Like a kid's first ride on a roller coaster. Alternates between pure joy and sheer terror.
