This homemade jet engine is the pinnacle of backyard engineering.

YouTube is no stranger to homebrew engineering feats, from go karts to DIY machining equipment, the myriad of creations and contraptions that can be found on the site is simply staggering.

This time, we get to see a turbo-jet engine spit flames and prive what seems to be a huge amount of thrust, as gearheads, the first thing that pops into our brain is “How can I stuff this in a go kart?”.

It’s certainly tempting to take this home built contraption, add a few mounting points, and build a go kart around it. Who knows, some of you might already have something similar in your garage or backyard?
