When constructing the strip-only electric racer as a testbed for future EV tech, Ford teamed up with Watson Engineering as well as MLe Racecars, the same shop that builtthe all-electric eCOPO Camaro for Chevrolet in 2018. Ford’s Mustang Cobra Jet 1400 gets its name from its 1400-hp output but Ford has reportedly dosed the car with even more power since its mid-eight-second performance.
It's drag racing! SPEED is the name of the game. Let the electrics compete! It will improve them. Besides, it's another competitive racing vehicle. It's good for the sport. It's a good way to improve and showcase the technology.
We all have our preferences, but don't knock Ford's Cobra Jet 1400 Team and other electric teams for having the guts to compete in the "big leagues" of the NHRA.
