Tom Saxton in his 2008 Tesla Roadster vs. White Zombie at the Wayland Invitational IV at PIR on July 25, 2009.
Results: Tesla 12.989 second 1/4 mile ET at 103.42 mph, White Zombie 12.468 second 1/4 mile ET at 102.11 mph. A slow run for White Zombie made this Tesla driver feel pretty cool keeping pace not too far behind White Zombie's amazing launch.

Worlds fastest street legal ELECTRIC CAR 1972 Datsun 1200 Whtie Zombie.
This car is based in Oregon... there are something like 18 hydro electric
power plants in that state! Hydro generation accounts for 58% of all
electricity in Oregon (Over 70% in Washington) and coal accounts for less
Only about 15% of the energy from the fuel you put in your tank gets used
to move your car down the road or run useful accessories, such as air
conditioning. The rest of the energy is lost to engine and driveline
inefficiencies and idling. Therefore, the potential to improve fuel
efficiency with advanced technologies is enormous. With an Electric Car it
costs just $1.00 per 100kms with MUCH more performance than with petrol at
$20.00 per 100kms.
EVs use between 1/6th and 1/10th the energy of a comparable ICE powered

Tesla Model S P85+ US Road Trip : Seattle to LA review
http://www.caradvice.com.au/322360/?yt_desc - Read the article here.
The plan: to drive from Seattle to Los Angeles, a trip of more than 1800
kilometres – almost the same distance as traversing the Hume Highway from
Brisbane to Melbourne. And, just like you would if you drove that trip,
we’d be travelling through three states to our final destination.
Charging up: the idea is to rely upon the Tesla Supercharger network for as much of the journey as
is possible – thus enabling us to figure out whether the car copes in its
The potential problems: running out of charge between cities, or when
exploring beyond the Supercharger route.
There are two major limitations when it comes to electric cars – battery
range and charging infrastructure.
Without either of these, you’ll be hard-pressed to travel any more than
150 kilometres using a conventional pure electric vehicle. But electric car
startup brand Tesla and its luxury-focused Model S turn convention on its
That’s because this sleek liftback sedan has the longest battery range of
any pure electric – that is, non plug-in hybrid – car ever made, with
up to 460 kilometres of claimed range. Aussie cars will come attached to an
even higher claim, with 504km of range.

KillaCycle New Record 7.86 @ 169 MPH Bandimere Speedway NEDRA event
The KillaCycle has done it again. We broke the _overall_ NEDRA record for
electric's in the 1/4 mile. The KillaCycle is the very fastest and quickest
EV of any sort in the 1/4 mile.
It was a beautiful day at Bandimere Speedway and, as always, the track
conditions were perfect.
The A123Systems battery propelled us into the recordbooks once again.
A123Systems raced ahead of the pack on the NASDAQ on Thursday, and their
batteries put us _farther_ ahead of the pack today.
I believe we posted the lowest ET (best time) for any vehicle at the track
today at Bandimere. There was a very well-attended bracket race going on,
and I think the bext ET of any of these powerful- purpose-built interal
combustion vehciles was in the low 8's.
Notice Eva Hakansson in the left lane on her ElectroCat. While the
KillaCycle was busy setting the "unlimited" drag bike NEDRA record, Eva was
busy setting the 48 volt division street-legal NEDRA record.
Tesla Roadster Test Drive
One beautiful December day we went for a test drive on the much talked
about, super fast electric sports car, the Tesla Roadster. We also
interviewed Tesla in their showroom and assembly area.
It was an amazing experience and I hope that car companies will make
electric cars the standard fleet coming out of their factories.
