A great memory for yourself and the team Rosco, and a great part of Australian history.

Mount I’ve station if I remember correctly?

I remember that did Australia well done and proud be Aussie

Does anyone know if Art Arfons ever saw Aussie Invader 2 ? I've always thought he would have liked song another car with similar design approach succeed.

Was this also at lake gairdner?

Peter Beck the founder and CEO of Rocket Lab, very kindly wrote the Foreword to my book "ROSCO The Fastest Aussie on Earth". In it he says and I quote... "The number of people who have strapped themselves to a rocket with wheels and let physics and engineering determine their fate is few, and for a good reason. It’s a profoundly bold thing to do. I know because I have done it."Well here is the proof that Peter did do it. 🀣

I seem to remember a rocket go cart at Epping NH in the mid 70's. Might have a photo I'll go and check later. OK found a bike and a cart, these are poor quality and I have no idea of any details. I'll post the cart next.

Peroxide ? We had Sammy miller and Eric teboul in the UK running peroxide but I hear Eric has recently retired

Wow I remember that day in Dunedin. (NZ). That thing was crazy fast

Mad max ….

Good stuff, would love to build a rocket bike, built a jet bike and that was a lot of fun

After a recent conversation with Dick Keller of The Blue Flame fame, which broke the world land speed record in 1970. Dick said it would be good to compare the sizes of the cars.

I wish I was that person that won the 40mill the other week in perth so I could cover the costs to get AI5R finished for you and see it go. Going to be one hell of a ride when that candle is lit.

Steroids or little blue tablets… World records are really, really hard, too.. 🀣

The Blue Flame's motor was restricted down to 13,000 lbs thrust for it's record runs. AI therefore has nearly 5x the power of Blue Flame.

Can’t wait to see them break the record. Whether or not they break the land speed record I dont know. I hope they do, but one way or another I reckon they will break a record of some kind. Like I don’t know, maybe the first car to be driven to the moon lol 😊

I think the Blue Flame had less drag on the rear. I will say yes petty much copied after Blue Flame and the Budweiser Rocket car

Some brilliant stories about this Ky Michaelson engined kart.

I cam remember seeing Jack McClure running a hydrogen peroxide rocket powered go-cart at Central Florida Dragway in the late 1960’s / early 1970’s. Craziest thing I ever saw. He wore w race suit that had a parachute in the neck / collar that was supposed to pull him free of the cart in case something went wrong. Want to remember him running around 200 mph in the quarter. Do believe there are videos of this on YouTube. 😎

I’m reading your book Rosco. You have lead a marvelous life. οΏΌ

I don't know how this little cart could accommodate the driver's humongous pair.

Never ever did that thing go 250mph in 6 seconds
