Design News - News - Drag Racing Goes Electric
"When we first published our story on electric-vehicle drag racing in 2009, the excitement in that tight little world was growing. In the intervening two years, John "Plasma Boy" Wayland and his White Zombie Datsun have cracked the 11-second quarter-mile plateau, with a record time of 10.258 seconds and a speed of 123.79mph. "
10.258 didn't crack the 11 second mark, it kicked the crap outta it!
what about Mate Rimacs green BMW? He announced a new car with 1088 horsepower and 2.8sec 0-100 km/h
Concept One vs Zombie smackdown!
Let's go! Race for pinks!
Can't decide if I like this, or if it's just plain wrong.
I like it. This is exactly the kind of thing that can show the average person that electric vehicles don't have to be boring or slow.
The car in the picture could use a few more batteries though.
I'm building one for my girlfriend. 675 HP Dennis Berube motor, 1.1MW FlightPower battery pack, 1.5MW Evnetics Shiva controller. The roller is rated to 8.5 seconds. There's a chance we can get into the 8s because we're using a Chevette and trying to keep it under 2200 lbs. Battery pack arrives in 2 weeks, and that's the last major component.
Check the National Electric Drag Racing Association website for the latest records. Door-slammers are already in the 9s.
Do you have a build thread or website?
Not yet. Soon.
Cool, post a link here so I don't miss it
