Wow, that's cool! It looks like Todd really started something with his rocket cars! This could really turn into a whole new category for water rockets! Thanks for sharing the videos and thanks to Todd for bringing up the idea!!!

When WRCs hits two times the speed and range of that one I think it will begin a new amazing era.

Keep the progress ! :D

Hey guys this is excellent work .. really impressive .. :)

Looks like the big wing on the back is really helping keep the back end of the water rocket car in control.

Looks like a mini Top Feul dragster ..... :)

Keep up the good work ...... looking forward to your next video !!

Could you post a photo of the releasing mechanism ? I don´t understand how do you activate the quick-release with your system...

actually thats verry simple , i use a bicycle brake , and two hose clamps. 1 hose clam holds the brake wire cover and the other holds the brake wire , so when jou brake , the quick releas releases . if jou dont understand, i will post a picture.

Can you get a cable like that in a long length? I only have scraps from old bikes that are about 1.5 meters long at best. I want to be farther away than that!

i dont think so , but its pressurising that is dangerous , not launching . so jou can make the air supply as long as possible.
