    Why they made this one the sleeper, I don't know. The other COPO should look the same.

    This was fantastic. The number of people crowded around it was insane too. I tried to get it out of the GM rep whether or not they were going to offer this as a crate engine, but he just kind of smiled and said "we'll see".

    I love it. 9 second EV drag car sounds awesome. My engines professor, who has modded engines most of his life and bleeds American Muscle, was less enthused.:lol:

    Once the noise and fury of the petrol engine dies, my interest in cars will. Sound is such an important part of the experience for me.

    I think the sound of an engine is the hook which initially makes a child like motorsport/cars. Followed by the smell of rubber/oil/petrol. Remove most of these ingredients and what's left ? Nothing that interests me.

    The first series that I follow to be ruined is World Rally X in 2020, going all electric. One more year left of the flame throwing, anti lag beasts, then it's over, the sport dies, (for me).

    Oh, Chevrolet realized why an almost stock Tesla Model S makes a good drag car.
    I hope they've made eCOPO all wheel drive as well - that should benefit the acceleration.

    Apologies in advance for going OT, but who all from GTP is in Vegas? All those that have contributed articles addressing show content?

    We're all home now. But it was myself, @SlipZtrEm, and @Jordan. It was like the Hangover but with Gran Turismo and we didn't lock an Asian man in a trunk.
