[This is wild and it works amazingly well. The acceleration is similar to what air force pilots experience! As always … Whites pushing things to the limit! That's us! Dare devils, explorers and always moving into new territory. More French wildness! Jan]
Many of us had the opportunity to launch small rockets made from soda bottles filled with water and compressed air. Using this very simple principle and with some rainwater, I have reached 261 km/h (162.2 mph) on a homemade trike, while accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h (62.15 mph) in 0.551 second (the average acceleration during the first 852 milliseconds, which was the elapsed time needed to cover the first 60 feet (18.288 meters), was 50.3868 metres per second squared or 5.138 g). This video was shot on the Circuit Paul Ricard located at Le Castellet in France.
