As for the sound of Formual E, maybe they should run spoke wheels and put a cardboard in the wheel, like I used to do on my bike when I was very young
I'd love to visit the US and/or Canada once, or twice.

Right now the whole thing is a marketing exercise, with little actual development going on. Despite the series what the series claims. The plan is to open up the batteries and chassis development gradually over the next few seasons, which for a startup series isn't that bad an idea. If they'd just stopped claiming they are the best thing since slice bread, I'd be much more interested in it.

Give me an RWD with manual gearchange (preferably with very poor/no aereodynamics and tire grip) and I'll be ok with it (both driving and watching it be actually driven), no matter the noise or if the thing even has an exhaust.

That was fun. Bicycles, balls, and Hot Wheels were my favorite toys.
I feel like Lorenzo. I like the idea of electric cars. I'd like to have one if they had at least a 200 mile/320 kilometer range. They're also too expensive for me at the moment. Over the years I've grown to be somewhat of a Nissan fan. I find it amusing now that the car they make that interests me most is the Leaf.
As for switching race cars, I don't understand why they don't make a battery pack that can quickly be changed, like a cordless drill.
