TESLAíS FAST TIMES

Tim Washington, via email

Even though Iíd never find the new Tesla Roadster as interesting as an atmosphereeating combustion engine, I like the fact it single handedly shows how small-minded drag racing is.

You can go to all lengths to build a demonic drag car. But then you have an electric motorís light-switch like power delivery, high rpm, and monster torque, which means itís so much more effective.

For example, the Dodge Challenger Hellcat Demon needs 9.65 seconds to do the quarter mile, while the Tesla needs 8.8.

Yes, itís a concept, but one not too difficult to put into reality. I wonder if bogans will still like drag racing if it doesnít involve disturbing the peace?
