1000HP Electric Miata Spark Show

April 11th, 2014

lonestar-sparks-dragtimesLonestar EV Performance’s latest project out of Houston, TX is an all electric Mazda Miata Drag Car, AKA Assault & Battery, with 1000 HP running in the 8’s at close to 150 MPH.

Powered by two Netgain Warp9 2000 AMP, 210 volt electric motors producing around 500HP each, along with instant power and torque, this monster Miata is going 0-60 MPH in just 1.5 seconds while lifting the front wheels off the ground.

Even more interesting is the spark show theses motors produce as recorded by a camera that was pointed at one of the motors during the Miata’s burnout and full drag racing pass.  If anything looks like the flux capacitor in action, this is it.
