WELCOME TO THE JET LUGE COWBOY WEBSITE
HOME TO THE WORLD'S MOST POWERFUL JET-POWERED LUGE
_Feel free to have a look around. This project has been a long time coming, keep up to speed with current events in the blog or find out more about board and rider in the info section.
To inspire, educate and encourage people of all ages to chase their dreams, push personnel limits and achieve a Guinness World Record speed of or beyond 200kph (124.27mph) for a Jet Powered Luge, beating the current speed of 115.83 mph (186.41 km/h), achieved by Jason Bradbury (UK) on the set of The Gadget Show's 200th episode in Bentwaters Parks, Suffolk, UK, on 9 August 2011.
Wind tunnel testing of the Mk2
Using two Jet Turbine Engines that each produces 190lbs of continuous thrust, then attaching afterburners that give a power increase of up to 44%, giving a total power output of approximately 540lbs.
These will then be attached to a custom-built luge board (JetLuge) - built and designed by DazTheCowboy in his shed - to then propel the board and rider down a given distance to achieve optimum speed.
This attempt will be done in the cooler months between April and August to help keep running temperatures down and maximize thrust output.
Previous record holder and first to set the land-speed record for a Jet Powered Street luge at 181.37kph Joel King.
