Its pure speculation I guess to see how hard they would trap on him or if he would have a sick 40 roll game as well but like you said 1/8 mile he has no competition at All!Ah, this dude is killing them in the eighth. I saw his other video where he cleaned house as well.
As battery technology evolves(and it has a LOT more evolution left) it won't matter. We can say they are king of the 1/8 for now, but that will soon reach all the way to the 1/4 and eventually the 1/2. The reason is because the power to weight ratio will get better and better, in fact they are positioned for a very big leap in that regard in the coming years. Initially, you could see dedicated electric race cars, expensive ones, that can rip through the 1/4. There are a variety of battery storage technologies available right now that triple the battery capacity. The only downside is they have limited recharge cycles(50-100), but like rebuilding a drag engine, if its a race car, who cares. Recent discoveries are putting that in the past however, so they will likely become commercially viable in the next several years. Better yet, Lithium Sulfur does not have a chemically induced thermal runaway which causes fires. When punctured, it simply loses some of its voltage.This totally makes sense. Electric motors are 100% instant torque once the switch is pressed. Electrics will always win less than 1/8 mile. I bet this is a much different story for the 1/4 and 1/2 mile.
In the 1/8? I doubt anything would have changed, particularly with that car being gutted. This P100D does 6.5 in the 1/8th and 10.44 in the 1/4.I think every one of those videos was with a traction challenged car. I'd like to see how it fares against a stock 911 turbo S.
Can’t stop the future....Well, give the 1/4 mile to several of the cars in the OP and they would probably win out. But this is 1/8th mile and the 911 doesn't even come close to 6.5 from what I've seen, in stock form. Eventually, the gas engine will be relegated to 1/2 mile only races lol
The 1/8th mile is NOT where you'd want to be losing your races, its not a good sign for people who want to dominate street races in their mustangs. Electric cars have a very high ceiling they aren't even scratching yet which should be a big concern. The new Tesla Roadster running 8's out of the box should give you an idea of that, but again, that is only the beginning. Battery technology has a ton of growth potential in several different directions.Can’t stop the future....
Couldn’t agree more !The 1/8th mile is NOT where you'd want to be losing your races, its not a good sign for people who want to dominate street races in their mustangs.

The day that they say "Gas only cars" is the day you know gas has lost. I will give TONS of shit to anyone organizing any races that exclude electric cars. You can't talk about how inferior they are all and always will be, and how stupid the idea is for all these years and then put a security blanket around you like that.
It will be whites only pies.
About as well deserved as taking Michael Jordan's basketball away in 3rd grade because he clearly can't compete with the pros. Give up, you're 4 feet tall. Bwahaha.....Clearly the future. It's an exciting time with the internal combustion engine at a very high level of development, electrics just getting started, and the big sway is going to be battery technology. The lame electric car stigma was at one point deserved, but it's very quickly outgrowing that now.
