Electric motor (esp. DC) should be all torque, almost forever- not too much of a drop like an internal combustion. At least until the battery dies, which shouldn't happen on a 1/4 mile.

:yikes: Sweet! I wouldnt mind having an elec sportbike. The new elec engines being developed could give the internal combustion engine a run for the money.

Sorta... Electric motors produce all of their torque at stall and the torque curve drops off as it climbs in RPM... Kinda backwards from an ICE...

Batteries are really the limiting factor... Generally batteries that can source enough current to push those big motors are really heavy... It really depends on the chemistry, but lighter batteries usually either cannot do it... or they can do it, but not without self-destructing...

Check out these EV bikes...

Hve any of you guys ever gotten into slot cars those things can be fast as hell...:idk:
I had some when I was a kid... My ex's dad and little brother had an enormous track set up in their basement... I gave them all of my cars (and two motorcycles) and track to add to it... Their track seriously had to be 500 feet long... It took up an area probably 20'x15', it was insane...

So would that thing be plug n play?
{Rant}
Ne Ways Fu*K that Sh*t, I wouldnt change ANY internal combustion engine, for an electric, theres no soul in it... A mechanic literally only needs to splice wires and hook it up to a comp or a power outlet or something... wheres the getting dirty part, taking off the head to put in higher cams, using that sweet smelling VP fuel, the sound of the engine roaring to life, not that vaccuum cleaner sh*t. I hate this environmental friendly crap where everything is changing and the future is full of fu*king hippies, now NASCAR's using unleaded fuel, WHY??????:cry: :cry: I wish I was in the 60's. This is MAJOR :wbs: !!!!
