Juiced 2

The All Electric Racing Team

Got Juice?

The building of an Electric Cruiser,
two Electric Drag bikes, Cafe Racer,

.....and on and on.

Why did we build these?

Tammy (well OK, me too) has always wanted to race a Drag
bike. We have raced WKA Karts and she is a former track
champion. We have Drag raced a door car, a carbureted
Rear Engine Dragster, a blown, injected Front Engine
Dragster (even a Go kart at the drag strip, but that is another
story) and now, Electric drag bikes. In 2008 we had "retired"
from running the FED for many reasons. We were smart
enough to see that the speed and our getting older reactions
were not aligned, plus the amount of money it takes to run
a good car, and some other reasons too. I envy the older
racers that can still do it, but for us, it was time to change.

As most of you know, once you are infected with the
Drag racing virus, you are hooked for life. It did not take
long for us to want to go racing again as we both make
bad spectators. We needed something fairly inexpensive,
a ton less maintenance than a FED and still be able
to watch our friends race between rounds, something
we had not been able to do for many years.

For Tammy, most race bikes were too big and she had
trouble with the shifting and clutch deal. Mick Withers
(Mighty Mick Motorcycle racer) was quick to point out
the ease of air shifters and such, but that is more money
and work we did not need at this point is our racing life.

Since we already have an Electric street bike, why not a
drag race version? They are now built, and we will be
having fun racing each other at the local drag strip.

Are we planning on “hitting the tour”? Heck No. This is
just for weekend fun, when we want, and since there is
almost no prep or maintenance, on a moments notice
head to the track. Just charge up the batteries and go PLAY!

Since our first ride it has expanded to Pit bike,
1/4 scale RC cars and now even a Cafe Racer.
When will the madness ever stop??? Never!!!


If you are even thinking of building one of these things,
DO YOUR HOMEWORK! (See our build pages too.)
Yes, in some cases they may be a glorified golf cart in design,
but 6 car batteries (in our case big dry cells) tied together
will kill you if you do not pay attention. There are some
well written safety rules for these “oversized portable drills”.
They even took the time to explain each rule trying to
keep any gray areas down to a minimum.

NEDRA Rulebook

So if you see (because you will not hear it going down the
track) an Electric Drag Race car or motorcycle bike at your local
race track, take a minute to wander down to their pit. Most
likely you will see the same quality in preparation, pride in
work and desire for racing you will see in any other race team.

Take care!
