    I don't know about this because you're losing top end acceleration and speed in an electric car that's already fast I would have put the transmission to a electric motor for more torque

    you know what could be a good idea? to use the oversized screen (since no longer wont be used any way because its broken) to mount the Gear knob shifter, like a Renault 4L Gear know .. i bet you've never saw one. One of the most well designed 90's European vehicle. or is it 80's? i don't know. Thank God there is Wikipedia. Other good examples of European Beauty: Ciroen 2cv (litterally means it has only 2hp) Fian Uno (Or if you would like more speed, Fiat Uno Turbo i.e) and of course, the Tar smasher: Opel Corsa A Cheers

    I've said for a long time... this is the greatest idea since sliced bread, for California hot rodders. You can't fail a car for emissions when there's literally no emissions certification for the chassis. It's just too bad the Tesla weighs so much... but the awesome aero coefficient makes up for it.

    Tesla, RWD, Three pedal six speed, YES!!! - I love electric cars almost as much as dinosaur fuelers. Engine swaps are almost always more fun, no matter what. A Tesla Software Engineer let me drive hIs personal car (Thank you Syed) for about twenty minutes (Totally thrilling, my first electric car drive). Even the little German toaster i3 was fun.
