Electric vehicles drag racing

It’s big in the US. It’s the unthrilling aural spectacle of drag racing electric vehicles. Don’t think that just because it’s using electrons it’s going to be slow: electric cars have all their torque available from zero revs, so they get off the line like they’ve been catapulted, and the fastest ones are sub-8-seconds. Will electric vehicles eventually be better than top fuel dragsters?
