2 stroke V-8

I'd love to stuff one of these in a smart car or a cart!

Now that's just plain silly, but I like it.
If you put some malathion in the fuel mix you could use it as a mosquito fogger!

Let's put that in a personal watercraft and see what kind of speed it will do.

I think it would cavitate more than anything I built up a 650 sea-doo and it would suck all the water out from underneath it if you pinned it too hard off the start.

It was fun though.. you could get it to wheelie so hard it would flip itself over

+1 agree, it will create the biggest vacuum around itself to the point that... maybe you can even levitate

For the people that don't get the "cavitation" statement, if you spin an impeller or propeller too fast it will stop moving what it was intended to move like fluid or air and create a vacuum around it self, in some cases even miniature vacuum explosions that actually damage the blades at the base, there is a very delicate balance between the size, shape and speed of the blades, just a quick physics facts
