Twin new world records, KillaCycle and ElectroCat

Blog - in EnglishPosted by Eva Håkansson 28 Sep, 2009 05:58:52

Both the KillaCycle and the ElectroCat managed to set new NEDRA records this afternoon at Bandimere Speedway. The KillaCycle, ridden by Scotty Pollacheck managed to bump up the record up for _all_ EVs in the 1/4 mile to 7.864 @ 169 MPH.

Picture: Me and ElectroCat with the record run time slip. Thanks Riders Discount www.ridersdiscount.com for my awesome motorcycle protective gear. The Alpinestars Stella lether suit fits like an extra skin, so to speak.

I on my ElectroCat, 100% street-legal in both the USA and Sweden, set the open NEDRA record for a 48 volt street-legal motorcycle; 13.249 @ 52.97 MPH. (I selected the 1/8th mile record, even though my 1/4 mile time was also new record.)
