    Good looking car but I don't think this is going anywhere. Unlike Tesla of 2004, it looks like these guys have no money...

    The EVELIO wasn't built from the K1 Attack kit as my car was in your posting link.

    It shares much of the appearance though.

    Lets wish them good fortune. Competition is needed to build a better product. Not government handouts.

    What is it then? A clone of a kit car? The appearance seems almost exactly the same.

    OK, after doing some research here's the (minor) difference I think he was trying to point out:

    sale slovakia | K-1 ENGINEERING - History tab:
    So the EVELIO has been built out of a converted/modified "K1 ATTACK ROADSTER" complete ICE vehicle with Ford underpinnings (see the already-linked EV Attack thread last page). Slightly different than the original ATTACK kit, which was to be built up with customer-sourced Honda parts. Overall appearance is nearly identical, but it uses different body panels and structures underneath. Recent posts in that link point out that parts, panels, etc. aren't interchangeable between the two (kit vs. 'production' car).

    That's the only difference he was trying to point out (though to anyone who doesn't own one or the other, or hadn't been through their forums recently, this difference wouldn't be clear at all).

    Let's mark this one up as 'lost in translation'. No need to go for the Mandible Claw or Figure-4 leglock on him... *sheesh*

    No nerd fights or pro-wrestling matches.
    I posted that "highly modified Attack" quote to say they were both "correct", VFX's reading comprehension skills notwithstanding. <ZING!>

    Not gonna sell many tickets with that kind of "let's all get along" attitude. :)

    Can you imagine the start?

    Ladies and gentlemen..., LETS GET READY FOR... a reasonable compromise.

    Why all the hating Doug? No one said, "kill the ref".
    "sheesh" is right...

    Without conflict, how do we attract viewers?

    That just leaves sex and disaster victims crying on camera.
