Why does it matter what the road car is vs. the race car? As in, where is it etched in stone that it has to be 4wd because it's based on the 100? Have I missed something?

It's not etched in stone, but it's just a stripped down road car so removing the front drive would be a bit more work than what they were originally targeting.

Either way, it does appear they've moved car. New version has the larger battery, 4wd and new front grill.

Of course now they'll no doubt be looking at the possibility of using a gen 2 Roadster come production.

Yeah, it makes EGT look good in that they have a car testing. But it currently only is one car and it's already out of date. Even if they posted photos of the new car being built then we'd have a little more faith in it happening.

I don't think many are really paying attention to electric racing but this series would've solved a few problems that FE hasn't done so far!

Is that electrical thing able to survive without any state- or crowd-funding? Is that alive at all without helping hand even if (at least as they say) there's strong interest in this type of racing/machinery?
