The dragster: Enough grunt to power a suburb
IT’S a groundbreaking dragster built to pack four million watts and a top
speed of more than 600km/h all with the power of electricity.
Wangara-based Top EV Racing’s quest to produce the world’s “fastest
accelerating wheel-driven vehicle” is nearing completion. Engineers are
hoping to build a solar-charged electric car capable of outracing its
Driver and company director Michael Fragomeni recently described the
vehicle’s muscle to newatlas.com like this:
“We’re talking about enough potential power, mounted within a foot behind my
head, to run a whole suburb of houses with lights and appliances switched
on. The electro-chemical energy density of the battery pack is equivalent to
more than 18kg of TNT.”
The team hopes to claim the top drag racing and land speed records, and to
feature in the Guinness Book of World Records for fastest accelerating
electric vehicle and fastest accelerating wheel-driven vehicle outright.
The project has attracted the attention of the Discovery Channel Canada,
which is producing a documentary on the teams’ lofty ambitions.
Fragomeni will present an update on the dragster to Innovation and Science
Minister Dave Kelly on Friday.
He will also announce new electric vehicle and clean technologies.
