Who do you think would win in a drag race: Eric Scott, the world's fastest jet pack pilot, or a Ford Focus RS with 300 horsepower? I hope you didn't bet on the Focus.
In the video above, Eric Scott challenges a Ford Focus RS to a drag race. It's pretty epic, considering Scott's jet pack only carries 30 seconds worth of fuel.
Implications - In this video, you will see Eric Scott flying through the air with his super-fast jet pack attached to his back. He excitedly states that he has broken his own record for fastest time going 68mph. This daredevil will surely be out with his jet pack again sometime soon, ready to break another record.
