Mr. Yuk

Having had the opportunity to see and run Luc and Viv's version of the engine you just built, I fully agree. Reading is one thing. Experiencing it first hand is quite another.

Congratulations on making it through a complex build.

I too am looking forward to seeing the pictures and reading more.

Dave

Just some pictures, but I do have some video. Luc has given me some good pointers and I can't wait to work on my engine. I did a night run and here is a video. You may notice fire out of the third stage, I have done some things to improve this, but I still have a lot of work to do

Apparently I cannot post a video. If anyone can host this video I would appreciate it greatly. Sorry.

I liked the recent photos posted in/on the GLC site, especially the 700 pound thrust Gluhareff. There's also another one displayed in a cubical. Funny how the nose is on the 700 pound thrust Gluhareff and how the fuel enters far forward.

I have paid for most of the parts for my new engine to be built. I have to make an order from www.stainlessheader.com yet for some sheet and some tube. I will be receiving a cone, coil/fuel line, and a nozzle system. These parts I have purchased feature some of Luc & Viv's innovations that are the key to high performance. Stay posted on the GLC forum for more info. Keep your eyes peeled for a lot of new and exciting things to come from Conception GLC inc.

I have finished my GLC designed pressurejet on the 2nd of this month. This thing is amazing compared to my last engine. The local news was at my school today to see my engine run. I'll get some more pictures but here are 2 that I posted at the GLC forum aswell.

Hi Mark,

I couldn't find the photos on the GLC site, could you provide a link?

Thanks,

Here is part of today's video from my camera. I would like to apolagize for my firend's poor videography... This is a video of a run at a large orifice dimension, tomarrow I will insert a smaller gauge as I am still flooding the engine. The engine burps in and out of a high lock like you may have seen in GLC's engine run video. I am experiencing flameout at about 80% throttle. This should be corrected with the new orifice and I should be able to attain 100% power. Here is the video:
