They are going some kind of hybrid, the electric part is some kind of power booster for passing from what I read. They can only use it so many times in a race.

Formula1 already has a system in place. Brake regenerative boost I think?

I didn't mean to challenge or offend you, Bama. (My wife will testify, communication is my weakest suit. ) In my own clumsy way, I agree, technology is growing exponentially and "they" might catch us sooner than we expect!

Back to drag racing... I hope I die before electric cars replace the flame-belching, ground-shaking killer hot rods we know and love. Nothing less will suffice, period.

Doubt I'll live to see that day & just as well... love standing on the starting line & experiencing the big beasts take off... nothing like it!!! It'll take a LOT of batteries to make the power a Top Fuel dragster makes!

No offense taken Dr C. All opinions are welcomed!

I’m with Tripper, I doubt many of us will live long enough to see electric vehicles take over. Without getting too political, I feel for you younger guys with what I see in some of these up and coming “ leaders” ,and I use that term loosely, they want to do away with all the fun things we have and have us live in a cubicle surrounded by foam eating seaweed, yuk!
