DC Plasma raced the Texas Mile today and ran a 134mph in the 1/2 mile and 155mph in the full mile. From a standing start. You can see the first uploaded video by Mike Dunn here.

Kind of neat from second 44 to 55 the jet engine sound of the run.

We ran at 210motor volts on the new helwig brushes.
Stock netgain motors otherwise. and a single zilla and half rated battery current at 1200 amps.

Congratulations on the Awesome Run! :D

Was that dust kicking up off the tarmac the second half mile, or magic smoke leaking out of the motors?
The event was crazy, there were more 1000Hp cars there than I have ever seen.
Welcome to my world, where the phenomenal is only average. Ed, the chief of T&S is a good friend of mine.

Glad to hear it was dust not cooking motors. I've run the half mile at Sandhills the last couple years, not sure the motors will withstand the abuse for the full mile.

Congratulations again for being the first EV to run the event!
