I once had a run out with Terry Sleap in a 162 jet demonstrator at Varne. It had a Ford 3 litre Essex lump in the back.

It went quite well, good initial acceleration, topping out as I remember at about 45. But as soon as you hit a little chop and the bow lifted it lost all forward momentum and slowed rapidly. I don't think Terry could have made many as I don't think I ever saw another one.
