Very speedy EVs

  • White Zombie
    The White Zombie is a street legal, 1972 Datsun 1200 electric drag racer created by John Wayland (a.k.a. Plasma Boy). The White Zombie ran a quarter mile in 10.542 seconds and reached 126.01 mph at the NEDRA Nationals at Portland International Raceway on 9/10/10.
  • KillaCycle
    Claims to be world's quickest electric motorcycle. KillaCycle's official NEDRA record for quarter mile is 7.864 seconds, 169 mph.
  • Lawless Rocket Drag Bike
    A new bike built by OCC for the purpose of taking the NEDRA record away from KillaCycle and it appears they are now "Mission Accomplished." Details to air on the TLC channel on Thursday, 9/30/10. Unofficially as of 11:00 a.m. PDT, 9/27/2010, NEDRA's web site is reporting that the Lawless bike hit 177 mph in 7.46 seconds for the quarter mile last Friday, 9/24/2010. NEDRA is probably waiting to have the official paperwork in hand before updating the "Record Holders" list.
