A part of me is excited for electric vehicles and another part of me is not...It's a mixed bagged of emotions.

You trade a nice soundtrack for the most insane torque you'll ever feel.

Back when I was in Formula SAE in college, I hopped in another team's EV car and fucking holy goddamn, I did not know what to do with that speed. It's literally like a railgun, provided the tires can keep up.

Coincidentally, the world record holder (at least, back in 2016) for fastest EV acceleration is a Formula SAE team from Switzerland; they managed 0-100 kph in just 1.51 seconds. The one I hopped in was slower than that... but by slower I mean it could do 0-60 mph in ~2 seconds.

I was gonna post this GTR in car vid but it was too long. 0-60 1.2, 60-130 1.5

Drag car yea blah blah... would like to see a dedicated drag electric for comparison(not top fuel chassis). You could really get creative with the power application
