Electric Drag Car & Don Garlits Light It Up In Eerie Silence

In yet another installment of our Electric Cars Don’t Have To Be Boring Snoremobiles series, we have “Big Daddy” Don Garlits hitting the drag strip in a 1,500-kilowatt (2,011-horsepower) electric drag racer.

From burnouts to launches, this drag car looks like a wild ride. We’re by no means the wicked talent Garlits is behind the wheel on a straight strip, but we’d sure like to take a pass in that thing.

That “thing” is the High Tech Systems dragster, which we spotted over at Bangshift, good for 60-foot times in the low one-second range and 3.22 seconds in the 330-foot at 95 mph–and that’s with shutting off just before the mark.

Full-strip runs are coming (the dragster is still in the testing phase), so don’t write this off as some kind of joke; the same team has put together an electric drag bike with a 1,000-kilowatt battery pack (called the Rocket Bike) that runs 6.94 in the quarter at 201 mph.
