Lectric? I think I'll pass.
Nothing like Top Fuel at night...flames and thunderous sound.

Agreed, without the sound and light show I have no interest. Ever try watching a race on TV with the sound muted? same thing. But it's probably the future, and end of racing.

I agree there's nothing like the sound of an Earth shaking 12,000 HP Nitro burning Hemi. But anything that can go from zero to 200 MPH in a 1/4 Mile is impressive.

Thanks for posting and I agree. Don will figure out how to run 200 MPH in a quarter mile with an electric dragster.
