Tango v Tesla @ Infineon Nov 30th
On Nov 30th, the fastest production electric vehicles in the U.S. went head-to-head. While their first meeting had a number of issues, most notably the underfilled Tango battery pack, and the Tesla's non-upgraded drivetrain, the 1/4 mile time is quite close and indicative of races to come. In this race, the Tango got 92.15mph in 14.480 seconds, beating its 14.7 "dial" handicap and thus losing the competition; the Tesla got 101.23mph in 14.666 seconds, slower than its 14.5 "dial" handicap and allowing it to proceed to the next round. (Two rounds later, the Tango's driver got behind the wheel of the Tesla and also beat its "dial" handicap... and thus lost!) Epilogue: the cars compete in different voltage classes, and thus both were able to set NEDRA records for fastest production electric vehicle that day. See http://www.nedra.com/record_holders.html The previosu NEDRA record for production electric vehicle was the GM EV-1, at 16.26 seconds and 78.76mph

The late, great, Modified eliminator. If you've never witnessed Modified Production and Gas-class cars in action, you really missed drag racing's most exciting era! Sure, drag cars are making more horsepower and torque than ever, with resulting quicker and faster ET's and MPH, but the sounds of these high rpm, manual shift race cars--sans any electronic rev limiters--is no longer around. Ditto for the mean sounding/cool looking dry hops, as the cars approach the start line (after the burnout) is unfortunately, a thing of the past.





Electric Vehicle Hits and Misses - Autoline This Week 1647
They arrived with such fanfare a couple years back, that you'd have thought we'd all be driving electrics by now but that's not the case. In fact, even today some manufacturers are reticent to even offer an electric option. But that hasn't stopped everyone from the biggest OEMs to the single car startups from designing and building all-electric cars. On Autoline This Week John McElroy and his panel look at the world of electric cars, if there's a want, a need or a business case to be made for their existence. Joining John in studio is Csaba Csere, the former Editor-in-Chief of Car & Driver magazine and Jim Hall of 2953 Analytics. Get more video everyday at http://autoline.tv
