JerryRigEverything : This is incredible

Link : Yeah I can’t be friends with these guys. My head hurts just trying to understand what their saying.

Cars And Drums : Man you're an aggressive interviewer lol

axe beard : This guy is a legend and nobody knows it yet. This is like the first hot rod electric car

sieve5 : That guy and Rich are what I aspire to be as a software engineer/car enthusiast. That's an awesome build.

Xavier Ancarno : VinWiki if you’re watching... we need Uncle Rich next on your channel.

nenon809 : Put these guys in a lab and you could get flying cars, no kidding.

Ron K : To put a Tesla motor in a different car is so hard it takes a really smart person to trick it to think it's still in a Tesla. This is engineering at it's best and his mc giver skills are sick

Easy How To : God damn! If this doesn't impress people I don't know what will.

Eli Maples : Seems like the car equivalent of a Hackintosh.

Dollar Menu : Wish I was half that smart to do any of that. That car is sick 🤤

moh abz : My mind is blown! This guy is nuts! If I had the money I would fly him out to the UK and convert my VW Scirocco!

BuildingNumber Seven : Elon Musk is Pissed...

NorthAmerican Auto : Someone swap the Tesla drivetrain into a water-cooled Porsche, let’s see who gets triggered by this.

Daniel G : This is the Future! battery motor swaps, bad ass!! Big block, small block battery packs coming soon? lol

Strangely My Comments Usually Get Quite Popular : He has a left over stripped tesla and a left over audi engine and transmission stuff?... Make a petrol tesla..

NoNonsenseKnowHow : Definitely a sick build! Thanks for sharing rich!

BoostedMotorsports : Once he gets the fit and finish dialed in this thing will be badass! I was waiting for everything to go flying on the launch 🤣

Brian Rock : If he ever rear ends somebody or gets rear ended he’s done for. Definitely needs better battery placement.

Sean K : Dude this showed up so many times in my suggested. I’d think this was a promoted channel. Come on YouTube; stop charging people like an old Tesla.

Dave Pawson : Put a big ass turbo sticking out the hood. That would really screw with people's heads when they get smoked. VINwiki time for both Rich and this guy. Agree?

aftli : Dude I live a couple blocks from here, how did I not know about this? Would have been awesome

Flavien S : Great job ! but ... battery pack in place of radiator ? Isn't it extremely dangerous in case of accident ?

turbodreamz22 : Riiiich! Idk if you remember me but you used to have an SRT 4 when I was younger and lived in Beverly. You used to be friends with my sister ELENI! What’s going on man!?

Jay Juggernaut : I get bad vibes off the owner and his buddy. He says he built the car by himself, but his buddy/cameraman says he's a co-builder but can't really say what his expertise is. Rich asks the owner what he does for a living and the guy says, uhhh this. Later he says this is what he wants to do for a living. I dunno about these guys.

Bob Flavin : The next wave of car makers will be "ordinary" people. Taking an old car and making it run on modern tech is the best thing ever to happen in the car industry. The boy-racer will come good!

kotsios photiades : battery packs on the front? I am wondering how this would handle a crash! ^^

Venom Monster : I wonder what the weight difference is between the Audi engine,transmission, gas tank, and exhaust compared to the Tesla drivetrain and batteries.

beast mode : Finally someone smarter than the smart 1👏

Jeff Sadowski : Yes to more EV conversions. :-) I like how they got around having to go to Tesla for parts.

Lambros Tsimakis : Poor RS5...

Gherman Godzin : Lol try to charge it on supercharger ))))

Lil Richard : Another Rich smarter than me.

Ginder0815 : So just to understand: You had a very good german engineered car with a lot of power, range and space. And now you invested a lot of money to have a heavier car with less range, less power, less space but uncooled batteries inside? I have seen a lot of stupid things but this is very close to the top of my list. And bevore anyone talks about our nature: first think about where the batteries are coming from and what you want to do with them when they have died.

Aaron Rembert : I am not in to Tesla or Audi, per se, but I am more than intrigued by this build and this video. Flabbergasted and caught off guard. AWESOME

Maor Elharar : That guy know what he's doing! the whole baggage is empty which is mean that he can create electric 5 cylinder tesla RS3 !!! HOLYBEAST !

Thoran666 : The crazy car mods is one thing i love about the US. You'd never get to drive this legally in the EU.

Scouppi : I WANT IT!!!

TheRegistrant : NO NO NO I WANT MY TIMING CHAIN TENSIONERS THIS IS THE DEVILS WORK

anasim : Finally, a reliable Audi.

Gregory Beau : So like a Model S... but worse.

Braincube 013 : Insane.

elesjuan : The Audi was actually pretty cool.... until the inside. Now I see why it only took 6 months to do this. The interior is down right awful. :(

burgienl : Why ruin a perfectly good car... LOL!

GotScout : I want a 4wd Tesla Diesel.

l8er : Being that I work at Tesla, I truly love this. Despite all the negative feedback, people still “low key “ like them and want to be as fast or as smooth as they are.

David J. Smith : WOW!...! Would like to See a Tesla Powered Taurus SHO (Newer Model) and or a 2015+ Tesla Powered Mustang GT! :-) ...God Bless!

ZweGGy : #AYCM

Fix It Angel : 2:29 6 months That is impressive

Michael Oconnor : I could build that if i had the money to buy the parts. Its really not as hard as people think
