RG is merely imposing a will cultivated by 100's of years of oppression by European aristocrates. It's an American spirit to those of us American. But it's also a David vs. Goliath story for anyone told they couldn't achieve greatness against corporate bureacracy.
And as evidence why RG chose to mimic the H3... It's a DAMN FUN VEHICLE, Y'ALL...
I believe it is a rear wheel drive 2WD .
