    Colin i just discovered your channel today. I have to say you are the caffeine addled version of what my old boss thinks he was (with a better accent as well).

    I wonder why he angled the jet upward. Level would make more sense to me. The way he did it would take weight off of his steering wheel on a bike already likely to get squirrely while going fast.

    undeniable the brilliant idea it is...with some improvement on the system..i believe there will be a shocking invention..i would say a good job!! even most of the people out there would say a nonsense work...

    Hey Colin im a fan of your videos, i have a new challenge for a pulse jet build mind you don't have to put it on anything, and mind ya this will be crazy huge. Ive seen Valve pulse jets that have tubes that are at lest 20 inches round and i was wanting to see if you have it in you to get at lest half that size say a 12 inch round pulse jet that worked. Anyways, challenge set hope hope to see you try and build it.
