Electric Car Drag Racing

Here's a great video from Oregon Public Broadcasting: The White Zombie, a 1972 Datsun that has been converted to run on nothing but electricity.

I often wondered why there weren't more of these guys out there. The torque of electric motors is no secret. It's guys like this that are going to push the industry just like gaming pushed the computer industry.
