Miata Electric Dragster Is Fast Yet Funny [2Video]

This little race car for the strip is almost like 1:1 scale electric car. The advantages of having electric power is that 100% of your torque is available from the first moment you touch the throttle.
The car has killer starts but doesn't seem to have the legs later on. Anyway, a 9.61 second quarter mile pull is pretty much unheard. It even outpaces a Ford Mustang for goodness sake. Give the guy a V-shaped battery pack, he deserves it.
We're sure there are plenty of haters who don't want to see electric dragsters. But this isn't about being green at all (that tire smoke could kill an elephant) it's about power.
