150lbs twin turbines with afterburners

hi guys

i have been working on a project for the last ten years and i am finally at a stage where i can start sharing it with people. i got not one but two 150lbs engines i have attached to to a board that i will hopefully be taking up to a guinness world record land speed record.

you can see the photos, videos and info at the website. follow the link for more. http://www.jetluge.com.au/

i would love to hear some feedback.

p.s. i have already hear the "your mad" type of feedback thanks haha.

Wings don't just get you up, they can keep you down

yes i understand, and for the most part. no. to begin with anyway. the current record is only 186.4kph which this board will be able to do with ease. i have taken my competition board up to 137kph powered only with gravity without the need of and down force. i know the English gentlemen that set the original record, he has said he had no problems with handling on the board at those speeds.
i guess what i am trying to say is every speed i do will be done in increments under controlled conditions. i am also seeking wind tunnel testing as i do plan to max out it's top speed eventually. this maybe a time i need wings.
