ELMOFO Radical SR8 Electric Racer Tears Up The Track – Video
“A wild ride with Garth Walden at the wheel for the first official CAMS sanctioned race meeting for an Electric Vehicle. The instant torque can make this car a bit of a handful on tight track sections…particularly with cooler tyres.”
“The ELMOFO Radical is the only electric powered vehicle in a field of petrol powered cars in Race 1 of Round 1 of the NSW SuperSports State Championships.”
States the video descriptions.
Some ELMOFO specs include:
- 416 horsepower electric motor
- 442 ft-lbs of torque
The video description continues:
“The car performed great during practice, qualified 3rd (of 7) in it’s class and was positioned 5th (of 9) on the grid for the start. The 2 front runners are super-light and fast Stohr racers which are in a different class to the Radicals.”
“The torque of the electric drive enabled Garth to wheel spin his way to the front of the Radical field which he led for the whole race until the last 150m where a technical issue caused a sudden power drop and let 2 cars pass just before the finish line.”
It’s especially entertaining to see ELMOFO zip past most of the field within the first few seconds of the race. The joys of instant electric power.
