This is all well and good but to me I'd rather watch the 'Funny-Cars'. I cant imagine a drag race without any noise.
I have been re-building, for the past 10 years, a 70 Dodge with a 426 Hemi, and cannot imagine using an electric motor, I mean where do you put the cam ??

Are you saying that there'll be sparks instead of smoke on races? Well, I don't know about you guys, but I sure think that'll be really cool...

with electric power, you could actually HEAR the burnouts, instead of the roar from the headers...
