That thing looks awesome, in a very, very scary way. Wonder what it sounds like?

It does look slick. At least the future Darwin Award winners will go in style.

It sounds very much like a jet engine..

Jay Leno was showing his on a History Channel show. It is a bit loud but, he said it is absolutely smooth... also there is about a 1.5sec lag between control and engine response, it GAINS power with speed, the faster you go the faster it wants to go... this is real death wish material!
