The thought of buying anything motorized from Craigslist is enough to give the bravest of souls a bit of anxiety. Craigslist items are notoriously hazardous and often don’t meet the description when you get them home and fully inspect them. A very strange item has turned up on Craigslist in Middletown, MD.
At first glance, it looks like a rather normal go kart. A closer look will show you it lacks a normal motor. What you see hanging off the back is a freaking jet engine with 300 pounds of thrust. The builder wants $10,500 for the cart and that doesn’t include your life insurance premiums.
The rear disc brake seems a bit small for 300 pounds of thrust and those little slicks won’t have issues with traction since it’s a pusher. I can only assume those two tanks on each side of where your legs sit are for highly flammable jet fuel. I wonder where you can even buy jet fuel. This thing sounds like a terrible idea… terribly awesome… but terrible nonetheless. Would you ride this wacky homemade death machine?
