Drag racing - have you got what it takes

hmm... thats weird because I heard of a racer who has around 600lb-ft of torque and 100hp, in which he destroys Corvettes, BMW M3's, Maserati's, etc.   His name is John "Plasma Boy" Wayland. He drives an EV converted 70's Datsun.

Beginner Conversion tips?

Oh man, the donor vehicle got into a front end collision with a distracted driver.   I will just research so far, since I'm flat out broke and don't have anymore donor cars.   Anymore advice for someone interested in making an electric car before he/she even buys his/her first car?

Now thats a great idea. Thank you Richo and Electrocycle. My dad had recommended that I start off making my own toy EV and work my way up to a real vehicle.   Is this a good idea?

Beginner Conversion tips?

Ok Woody, well I was just planning on doing this conversion to save gas, and if possible drag race it so I can beat my buddy's Toyota Supra (with a turbo!!).   However, I am jobless, so I have not much money. Thats why I am trying to get sponsored like this one guy in the US named John Wayland (aka ...

Drag racing - have you got what it takes

I also think that an EV only racing association is a good idea. It'll offer a lot of incentive to join when everyone else with their gas-powered cars see how well these EV's accelerate due to their tremendous torque, that's why I want to make my own EV too.

I am just curious people, do anyone know of any EV's with an AWD drivetrain?   It'll be interesting to know. If you have, please post some links to some videos or pictures, or just post the pictures and videos here. Thank you.

Jay Leno's 'Celebrity in an EV challenge'

I wish Ford would your idea of selling an EV Focus. But they're too greedy for that. Even here in America, they don't sell us that late model Focus featured in Jay Leno's challenge. Although we have our earlier model SVT Focus to be proud of, its out of production and the style of the new one is goo...
