No.  It's not really feasible.

Actually, there is a simplified type of jet engine called a pulsejet that can
be put on an R/C plane (or car).  Speeds of over 400 kph are possible with one
:)  I realy don't know much about them so try these:

I have a Ducted Fan incoming soon.. If I find a car it will mount
successfully in - I'll have my "jet" powered car sometimes this fall.
If not - I think I'll buy a rather large snowmobile I was offered last
winter and put it on there :-)

I'll let you know whenever it's done.

OH and before i forget one thing that may have not been mentioned before in
this thread, most aircraft motors make all their power at low RPM's due to
propeller tip speed (at transonic and supersonic speeds propellers lose
efficeincy rapidly) for info on that you would be best served going to
rec.models.rc.air. really smart and friendly bunch of guys. keith s.

A guy in Australia made a proper jet engine powered drag car, he used a large scale (1/5-1/8) shell
and built a carbon fibre chassis with billet aluminium wheels and bonded foam tyres, it was actually
tested on a drag strip at a national drag championship but he had troubles and didn't finish the run.
It went very fast though. I am at university at the moment so I will post some more information if
you are interested when I get home.

Hi there,

   I can remember the days before they came out of those big head engine for car. We had
used aluminum strip and bent them together and use a metal tie wrap to tie on the head
of the engine. It works pretty well. If you got a chance to look at some older car or helicopter,
they use that type of thing to reduce heat.

Regard,
Alfred.
