    Good question - they're hardly queuing up to join, are they?

    Is there a better sound than that of Porsche engined Flat-6 ???

    That is a good question my guess is Subaru as there seem to be some rumours about a joint project with Toyota.

    Not sure where to discuss the electric evolution of rallying, but rallye-magazin just posted an update on the Corsa-e. What is interesting is that Opel development team worked on the sound.
    https://www.rallye-magazin.de/drm/ar...e-rally-46309/

    The rules apparently dictate that a different (lower) sound level in required on the road section.

    The sound system they build not only depends on the speed of the car, but also the rpm, so wheelspin will be hearable. They did not want to reproduce the sound of a combustion car, but create a specific sound for electric car. They use 2 speakers of 400W.

    The video is not so good, switching from angles the whole time, but you get an idea:

    Paddon was also mentioning that sound would come on his eWRC, I'm very curious about that as well.

    I'm not against electrifying of rallying at all, I just hope a elegant solution can be found for the lack of sound, at least they are working on it :-)

    Sound is the only "real" issue that prevents electric rallying. Not only due to the security aspect but also due to the "excitement" aspect and "sporting" aspect (knowing what the driver is doing with throttle and whether the car is spinning).

    Agree that "copying" combustion car sound is not a good idea in the longer term. Doesn't mean it has to sound like a startrek spaceship though....
    Hard to tell how the Adam actually sounds live from a youtube vid and PC speakers, just remember that this should be compared with combustion Adam which isnt exactly an awesomely sounding car in the first place.


    In the end I guess it will have to be mandated by the rules in some way, min./max sound level at given speed/throttle setting.
