Great job.  I can only guess of all you had to do for a gear reduction and transmission setup....

Drove the Turbine Batmobile via police escort on the highway to the Arthritis Foundation show on Friday morning. The bummer? It was raining the whole way. Despite the rain, the turbine car was great! It never missed a beat and drove perfectly. It was a big hit at the show and at one point I had about a dozen models riding on top of the car like the Beverly Hillbillies around the show! The drive back home to the shop was great fun. How cool to be driving a jet turbine powered Batmobile through traffic down the highway!!! It has been a satisfying venture to create the car and have it be 100% reliable and drivable from the word go. I'm glad to have taken on this project! 

Pictures to follow

Well the turbine Batmobile is driving perfectly. I must admit it's a total rush to be driving this thing around. It has got to be the craziest car there is!

Check this out guys. Todd Cooperider is on of the top 10 automotive detailers in the world and he has written an article about my turbine Batmobile!

Also, would you believe I had 3 more on the car and we went driving around the show this way? That's 12 total!

I run it on either Jet A fuel or Kerosene. The MPG, certainly isn't great, but its not terrible. Not sure exactly what is is yet.
