This seems like an easy record to beat.

I'd be more impressed if he did it on the existing shopping cart wheels.

Yeah, that's just a go-cart with a shopping cart welded on top.

Hit the lights on the way out, guys.

Bingo.

I could (have someone who knows how) weld a shopping cart to the top of my car and probably hit 70 on the highway.

While it looks mildly amusing, it's not very shopping-cart-y.

45MPH for 150hp? Try harder.

When people ask you what you did with your life you'll say, "I hated L.L. and I carried a big knife."

Yeah, that's a bullshiat "record". When Honda set a new lawnmower land speed record recently the thing had to be able to, you know, MOW THE FARKING GRASS.

Then they took the blades off and went 130 mph.

That said, Matt gets mad props for using an old turbine engine.

He's going to say "Ow, I burned me bum!".

I don't understand ...so if I duct taped a Big Wheel to it, would it be the fastest Big Wheel?

How about we dangle a skateboard from an attached rope... just as valid ...whatever that means.

Seriously.  Chinook Helicopter jet engine and he only gets 45MPH out of it?  He should be able to do 150 easy.

Wasn't the old record done with a real shopping cart and a pulse jet?

That's a Chinook auxiliary power unit engine...NOT the main rotor engine. It's designed to drive a PTO shaft, not generate thrust, so it's hard to say how much thrust-equivalent horsepower it makes. On the presumption that 45 mph was the cart's terminal velocity, I used this calculator with a Cd of 1.2, frontal area of 8 and a weight of 500 to get about 7 horsepower.

Hmm, I know where there's a trolley cart in a creek...I have a good running CB-750 engine (~60 hp) and a set of kart tires and wheels.

I found this sequence of headlines entirely too amusing:

That's what happens? You die and some guy asks what you were doing with your time? I suppose that's when I start masturbating. And then wake up in Hell at the shopping cart races.
