1972 Datsun a Electric Car- Drag Race- Datsun vs 405HP Corvette
White Zombie vs 405 hp Corvette. From the first Wayland Invitational drag races, this video was captured by Bob Rice. It 'was' pretty complete with the Vette doing his burnout, then the Zombie pulling an even more impressive burnout, then the two cars staging, then the race 'all' the way down the track, then the readerboard's report at the end...that was before Bob accidentally erased the beginning and the end of the footage :-( We've salvaged what's left in this clip. After being blown away by an electric Datsun, the Vette driver's ego was too bruised to handle and with his tail between his legs, he left the track and took his Vette home

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

1972 Datsun a Electric Car- Drag Race-Datsun Electric vs Cop Car -Electric Drag Racing Car 300HP
Tim took the wheel with our buddy Jason as a passenger as they drag raced a
cop car. The video isn't perfect, but it still captures the moment. The
officer got the jump on Tim, as the Zombie's rear tires simply smoked. Tim
let off the throttle, then stabbed it again only to re-ignite the tires.
You can hear the tires still breaking traction through the first part of
the run. Once the car hooked up, it ran away from the cop car with ease
Tim gets carried away with this over-the-top tire shredding event. After
the smoke cleared, we found tire chunks all over the roof and hood of the
car. Our good friend Deputy Sheriff Jason was manning the videocam. You can
hear him chuckling as he says, "That's smokey!"
ELECTRIC CAR - Part 1
It isn't really a complicated process to do an electric car conversion, but
you will need to obtain certain specialized parts.
You will need: an electric motor, deep cycle batteries, a controller, a
battery charger, an adaptor kit, and various other small parts.
But first, you are going to need a vehicle that you can do your electric
car conversion with. Any vehicle can be used for this project, but some
work better than others.
Heading the list are small cars and trucks, as they are light and strong.
Your first consideration as shown in the detailed plans is to find the
lightest vehicle that will still do the job of hauling you and whatever
cargo you carry around.
Next, you will want a large DC motor that will produce power for your
electric car. The larger the motor, the more power your electric car will
Don't worry that it will be slow either. Many people have the wrong
impression of electric cars; they accelerate as fast as any vehicle on the
road and travel at least 50 mph.
What about batteries?
You will need to locate about 16-20 deep cycle batteries for your car as
well. The plans outline sources of batteries, even free batteries that you
can find with a little effort. The same source will probably have free DC
It's just a matter of asking.
Why do you need this many batteries? In order to achieve a range of up to
100 miles on a single charge.
A controller is needed to fix the amount of current flowing from the
batteries to the motor which determines how fast you go. The controller is
connected to your old gas pedal linkage for smooth control of the vehicle.
In order to charge your batteries between trips, you will need an on-board
battery charger. That way you can just plug it into any common AC circuit
and get charged up again.
Doesn't this sound like fun?
Isn't it time you got started on your own conversion project?
