2,025 mph 38mm carbon fiber rocket!

"38mm carbon fibre mach madness rocket, flown to 18,000ft on an Aerotech J570. Max velocity was 2970ft/sec, or 2025mph. Recovered undamaged 2km from the launch site. Mach 1 was broken less than 100ft off the pad, max velocity reached 2.0 seconds after launch. 112G's were pulled at liftoff."

112 g's is pretty massive!
