    There's very little of the of the original road going Leaf in this race car. It's like comparing a Lotus Elise to a Toyota Auris. They both share the same power plant, but everything else is different.

    Electric cars with actual technology is very very big mistake. Only right way is power source in car, no batteries. Nikola Tesla knews it. And one of big reason, why people like racing, is sound!!!
