The final cut of the 8th episode of the Tesla Motors Club Podcast, featuring Balazs Biro, of the prominent Hungarian EV channel Villanyautósok, is now available. You can watch it now on YouTube or listen to it on all major podcast networks.
"When the car left Tesla, they held on to the electric motor and all other drive train parts. It still lacks an engine to this day."
"The drive-train removal process looks like a rush job. They just cut the wiring and took it out of the car. No clean removal, just a pair of scissors and the electrical drive train was gone."
I've always wondered how easy it is to swap out the entire drivetrain out of a Tesla Roadster and install it in a Lotus Exige GT3 body. If I ever have disposable money, that would be a project I will have Rich Rebuilds make for me. One can dream.
