It's been posted before but with all the interest in electric cars recently this guy has gotten a ton of attention lately.

I love the idea that someone is bringing a new technology to drag racing, exploiting the ability of an electric motor to provide maximum torque from 0 RPM to redline, and creating a ridiculously fast machine.

It would be nice if the owner admitted that all his electricity comes from coal fired power plants, which are not particularly clean, and that he admit he is creating hundreds of pounds of hazardous waste a week from all the rechargeable batteries he is discarding (from 6:24 on, the story is about him waiting on an undelivered set of new batteries...).

It's neat, but it's about as environmentally friendly as dumping used motor oil directly into the storm sewer while kicking Iron Eyes Cody, the Indian from the 1970's Keep America Beautiful commercials, in the shins.
