    I have the extreme pleasure of being great friends with Ken and his son Peter Warby. I have personally sat in this awsome piece of engineering excellance and get to spend countless hours at the race shop with these men. zfish has acompanied me on numerous visits to the Warby shop. What a thrill this is.
    We have a real hero here OGF people. Enjoy the video! LakeRaider

  5. Hey Raider,
    What are they using for drivetrain in that thing? I hear turbines from the video, but can't tell if it is one or two. How do they couple those to the drive?

    I'm still trying to get south for a ride in a hemi X!

    Thats a Westinghouse jet engine. 9,000 hp. 12,000 hp with the after burner clicked on. Its not coupled to any type of drivetrain. Thats about the extent of the info I can give for now. I called it a bottle rocket once and Ken cracked up. :D Raider
