    just watched the vids, 2 observations:

    1. sounds exactly like the RC cars I had as a kid

    2. when you don't have and ICE wailing away at 18k rpms, you can really hear how terrible those transmissions clunk when shifting lol

    Formula E to start next weekend in Beijing Saturday September 13.

    In short, formula E will have 10 races in 10 different cities, only street circuits. Everything from practice, qualification and race will happen in 1 day. Should be very exciting. Big names of racing will take part like Prost and Andretti, McLaren, Williams and some like 10 ex F1 drivers

    http://www.fiaformulae.com

    RDS the French sports network will broadcast all 10 races. I don’t know about the English networks

    Wow. That was entertaining. By the 10th lap I was used to the new sound. The pit stops are something different, changing cars in 50 seconds. The end was heart braking for Prost who lead the whole race, but he fucked up. He should’ve changed lines way before cause he had to expect that Heidfeld would make a move on the last turn. Next race November 22 in Malaysia. That’s a long wait

    Just got in the house and watched the last five laps. Another car hit the wall on the last lap, Senna this time who was fourth. I’ll watch the whole race tonight.


    Its the future of racing... only what, 20 years left of petrol. Max

    What crack are you smoking. 200 years worth in the tar sands, several hundred years worth in a few seas like arctic. Then there is bio-diesel, E85, bio-ethanol etc... Lot of sources of fuel to burn in an internal combustion engine.
