Hello to All,
As many probably already know, ever since we ran out back-to-back 10.4 second runs, the Internet has been set ablaze with various versions of what happened on July 30th. One of my sponsors has found perhaps the best one yet, and has turned me on to it…now I’m turning you all on to it. The record run of 10.400 was against Japan’s super car, the Skyline GTR. Other than their use of the old torque specs for the Siamese 8 (772 ft. lbs. instead of the est. 1250 ft.lbs. of the Siamese 9) and their claim that the Zombie is an all wheel drive (not), the rest is very well written, and oh-so entertaining!
I hate showing GT-Rs losing (and thankfully, those videos are so few and far between that I never really have to) but this one is too cool to pass up. Of course, the ’72 Datsun 1200 in question (affectionately called White Zombie) is no normal Datsun. This 1200 runs off an all electric drive-train which delivers an immediate 772 pounds of torque. That’s right, 772 pounds of torque delivered to all 4 wheels the second the accelerator is hit. That power makes this Datsun the fastest electric car on Earth. This incredible vehicle uses a cavalcade of batteries to power the vehicle for as much as 100 miles of driving, or if you’re more interested in speed than conservation, 1/4 mile of all-out hauling ass. The EV Datsun 1200 hits 0-60 in 1.8 seconds and finishes a 1/4 mile run at a very very respectable 10.4 seconds. Not even the monster that is Godzilla can top this thing. The stats are impressive, but it’s even more fun to watch. If you don’t get a sick laugh watching a ’72 Datsun 1200 run a 10 second 1/4 mile, you probably don’t have a car-loving soul.
