Engineering Nerds unite! Seriously, very cool opportunity for the University students of Zurich and Lucerne.

Not sure that's faster than a top fuel dragster.

My eldest son did "Mini_Baja" at NorthEastern.
The experience was all good!

It's not. I think they're consistently well under 1 second, something closer to 0.8 seconds. There's something to be said for 10,000+ horsepower and fuel consumption around 0.017 mpg. :D

Both the e-cart and a top fuel dragster need refueling after every run!

A Top Fuel dragster accelerates so quickly that its already passed 60 mph by the time the rear tires have crossed the start line (300 inches).
This was 4 years ago:
Using physics, ( 1/2 * a *t**2= d and v =a*t), you get 0.568s to get to 60mph...or, I think, around 5Gs.

From what I read that's getting at about how much force a person (Brittany Force) can handle.
It may be 0.4 seconds 0-60 so more Gs.
