Local power company uses them during peak demand in the summer. 7 Jet engines all pointing straight up, they can also run them to correct minor abnormalities with the earth's orbit :shock:

Now there is an idea for my Ural conversion. A small gas turbine from a helicopter with a Denso alternator bolted onto the end!

I use to work on T58 turbo shaft engines. Mario Andretti ...all most won the Indianapolis 500 with one of those engines. A wheel bearing fail just short of the finish line. At the time they put out over 1200 HP and weighed less than 300 lbs.
2012 Gear up - 130/40 jet, 3 shims, no mid-pipe, drilled slider, 2013 Branch pipes, all LED lights
2013 NOS Ural T - 130/42 jet, 2 shims, LED running lights, oil cooler
