Ah, this dude is killing them in the eighth. I saw his other video where he cleaned house as well.
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.
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
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. 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.
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.
