He gets a great start off the line. Do you think that is due to the bike, or is it due to him having some good reflexes and being an excellent rider? I'm guessing a combination of both.

electric torque is instant, its almost too easy. Half the battle as a racer is keeping your machine in the proper rev range for max punch out of corners. Without the need for that its a ridiculous advantage....

The torque really does make a big difference then. Have they been using electric engines in drag racing too to get the same advantage?

Haven't heard of anyone using electric Drag machines. 320 in a quarter mile will be hard to accomplish with an electric motor, but then again who knows?

ostensibly I would say that the amount of batteries needed for monster propulsion on a drag car are far to heavy to be viable. However what do I know, I'm just a fisherman who don't know nothing....

A really big advantage, instant power and no need to change gears.

instant consistent power definitely helps.
