Huff Motorsports electric drag racing division e-Spec Racecars LLC design, built and raced "Current Technology" electric dragster to take the title of being the World's FIRST and ONLY electric car to go over 200mph in the 1/4mile.
HISTORY IN THE MAKING
Jan 2017 - Appearance on Good Morning America, Don 'Big Daddy' Garlits said he had been chasing the goal of being the first electric car to go over 200mph for a few years, but did not think it was achievable with current technology. Thus inspiring "Current Technology" electric dragster to be built by Steve Huff with support of Larry Carrell.
Sept 17th, 2017, "Current Technology" is the new record holder for the unlimited volt class at 180.03mph.
2018 back to the drawing board as we look for more power, better acceleration off the line and the effort continues to be the first to 200mph in the 1/4 mile in an electric dragster.

e-Spec Racecars LLC offers a new 188-inch wheel-base dragster. Our mission is to redefine the NHRA by creating safe, economical, and low maintenance dragsters that are accessible to the next generation of racers.
Safe: NHRA legal dragsters with chromemoly chassis SFI certified to 6.00 seconds
Economical: at roughly $60,000: e-spec Racecars will be capable of competing in multiple NHRA classes. Specifically for driver development starting with Jr. Comp for 14 – 21yo with a 6.90 sec index in the 1/8 mile through Top Dragster at 6.90sec in the ¼ mile; and everything in-between.
Low Maintenance: utilizing 2.0L turbo charged crate engine. High gear, multi-stage/multi-disc clutch drive system eliminating the need for a transmission. Splined chain drive rear axle, eliminating the need for a rear differential.
Made in the USA: e-spec Racecars and all components are built and assembled in the United States
