Killacycle, Best Burnout for World's Fastest EV!
With a new tire, the Rider, Scotty Pollacheck did an exceptional burnout to expose some fresh, new rubber. As it turns out, this was also our best "first run of the day" with the controller turned down to only 900 battery amps, and the battery pack not quite fully warmed up. Isn't it amazing what A123 Systems batteries can do?!? Search YouTube for "KillaCycle" for more videos, visit www.KillaCycle.com, or www.NEDRA.com for more information on Electric Drag Racing!

Martin Stamatis 4.577 329.10 mph (529.63 kmh) drag race
Western Australian Martin Stamatis became the fastest Australian drag racer at the recent Sydney Summernationals on Saturday February 16 when he blasted his Fastlane Software Jim Read Racing top fuel dragster to a top speed of 329.10 mph (529.63 kmh) down the WSID quarter mile. The fastest speed recorded by an Australian on Aussie soil was previously held by his team mate, Phil Read who ran 329.02 mph (529.51 kmh) at the 2006 Boxing Day International Top Fuel Challenge. Although the margin may be minimal to some, for Stamatis the speed was a great personal achievement for him and his hard working team, and the 4.577 second ET from the run is also now only just behind Phil Read's personal best of time 4.571 seconds, leaving the entire Read team really pumped. Stamatis and his team then went on to win the meeting, and are now looking forward to the next top fuel round due to be held in Sydney on May 2 and 3.
