Nissan Leaf Insane Mode?

Teslas are badass. This much is indisputable.
But Nissan Leaves (Leafs?)? Not so much.

It occurs to me that eco-minded people (or bespectacled geeks, as shown in the vid) occasionally want to be badass, too; it’s just that a Leaf is not ideally suited for that purpose… It would also very much surprise me if a stock Leaf could outperform a stock 180SX.

The first problem you would run into when trying to organize such a test, of course, is finding a stock 180SX. As a sister model of the Silvia S-13 (ahem!) and ultra-iconic drift car in all of its forms (beginning with the first-gen “pignose” models), there probably hasn’t been an unmodified one since approximately two weeks after the last third gens rolled off the production line in 1998.

I miss my Silvia.
