The weight and efficiency difference might affect the range, but I suspect only a percent or two. This is assuming other factors stay the same, like gearing and batteries.
Also If I wanted a range ev but wanted a drag car for the weekends is that possible?
Sure. A couple of guys do it. And a few of them are quite fast, like White Zombie.
Some guys will have two battery backs. A heavy pack for the user mode, like flooded batteries, and then a light high power pack for the drags, like AGMs or Lithiums. Why carry 30 miles of energy down the quarter mile?
The other thing which could be worth altering between the user and race mode is the gearing. And maybe tires.
It can be done, and done well. Good luck.
