An S2000 should not be quiet.

At that point, all you have is a chassis built to handle with more power than it was designed to hold, going in a straight line. Why ruin an S2000 to do it? Pick some common RWD car and mod that instead. A Mustang with solid rear axle would seem the obvious choice (or a Camaro).

It's neat but such a waste of a masterful chassis (for its day)...

Complete and utter blasphemy. Props for the work. But still blasphemy.

Interesting, though. It would surprise the crap out of a lot of people.

Different strokes for different folks.

Honestly the motor was one of the big draws for me and has kept my S2000 in the garage for nearly 14 years. I like the ingenuity of going electric, but definitely prefer the F20C. And I have never been a fan of purpose built dragster S2000s either, negates the other engineering genius of the S2000's design, the suspension and chassis.
