John Metric got a ticket...or is that a time slip?
A few days ago, a converted electric drive Mazda Miata named Assault and Battery set a new world record in the 1/4 mile beating Black Current III.
"NEDRA NEWS - TEXAS (October 11, 2013) NEDRA President John Metric took his Miata, Assault and Battery to an all-time 1/4 mile record for a door slammer at Royal Purple Raceway with a best time of 9.12 at 145 mph!"
According to NEDRA, Assault and Battery has "333 volt LiPo pack and two 2000 amp Zilla controllers feeding dual NetGain 9-inch motors", but at the event current was limited to less than 1,100 amps.
This record was set in the XS Extreme Street class.
