electric drag car

Ok. I was shooting my mouth off about y'alls fast trucks and my team lead sent me this.

Oregon Field Guide — Electric Drag Racing Oregon Public Broadcasting

This guy took a '72 Datsun and replaced the engine with an electric motor and about 60 or so batteries. He drag races other vehicles in this thing!

So far, his quarter mile times are in the 12s. Near the end of the video he gets 11.8.
