      That is going to take some getting used to. The lack of sound is a little disconcerting but I think electric drive is going to be very hard to beat in autocross events in the future.

      They will simply be put in their own class and eventually will be top dog over all other classes. Electric power is superior in every way, except range and "refueling." But that will eventually get better and better.

      Yup. I see the writing on the wall. There will need to be a new class so the rest of us oil-burners can compete.

      After riding in a Tesla in Ludicrous mode while at the Sandhills Open Road Challenge, it gave me some appreciation for just how hard an electric car can accelerate (and a sore neck).

      Lot lower cost than my gas 427 Cobra. Carroll Shelby had a battery cell Cobra in his shop, and the torque was unreal.

      Impressive but it has no "soul"... it's an appliance.

      Tighten it till it strips & back it off a quarter turn.

      I think the builder would argue that. A car having a "soul" by no means is dependent upon what type of engine/motor it has. It's about the craftsmanship and love that went into it, as well as the cars unique flavor and character when it comes to design and ride/performance.

      A Tesla has no "soul" and is a production line appliance. Although the electrical engineering is some next level sh*t in their integrated systems boards, it was still built by machines in a factory and not human hands with care.

      This Cobra does not deserve that same disrespect.
