Neal Darnell and his truck Shockwave Jet Truck racing at Toronto Motorsports Park,Cayuga, Ontario, during the weekend of the Canadian Nitro Nationals. Powered by 3 Pratt and Whitney J34-48 jet engines. These jets are usually found in U.S. Navy's T2A Buckeye plane.
Following is a reply to a question on Shockwave's FB page about the white smoke duing the preliminaries. Regarding the afterburner and whether there is fire from the exhaust which creates the flame or creates a cloud of white smoke/unburned fuel. He said there is a button on the steering wheel that powers the spark igniters which creates the fire and when that button is not pushed, the fuel is not burned which creates a white cloud of smoke.
"Afterburner is either on or off. There is a button on the steering wheel to light the burner. If you don't Iight the burner, it makes smoke."
I also asked what kind of fuel it burns, ie Jet Fuel, Diesel Fuel, etc he says it can burn anything but gasoline or alcohol. Mostly oily fuels. Jet A, JP 4, JP 8, Kerosene, Diesel, BioDiesel, etc.
"About anything but gasoline or alcohol. Mostly oily fuels. Jet A, JP 4, JP 8, Kerosene, Diesel, BioDiesel, etc."
I asked if they could spray water into the exhaust to create a vapor cloud and he says water would not work.
