    Pulse jets! The students from my local tech university strapped one of those to a common bicycle and went very fast with it.

    lol any faster and that center column looked like it would have failed, good thing they didn`t push it

    although seeing them turn at 400 rpm and then flying off into the trees might have been rather interesting

    That was like, 15 rpm. Fail I say! FAIL! If you`re not spinning as fast as a velociraptor you`re standing still.

    You sir are the reason that I can go into a store and buy a computer any colour of the rainbow, but they all run windows. No appreciation for the art of engineering.

    "Any reason why only one is belching flame?"

    On a pulse jet you shouldn`t really see the flame unless it`s dark out. There was something wrong with that jet to begin with. It probably had too much fuel being dumped into it. It was running red hot by the second revolution. Granted it was running first and longer than the other.

    I apologize. To be honest it was a fair design. I`ll settle for: "it wasn`t tested to its full potential".

    This was probably much better from the riders` perspective than from the onlookers`. From the angle of the carriages, I`d estimate they were pulling about 2 Gs.
