    If Roush can give them a close estimate of how much it'll cost to complete the EOM powertrain testing, study, fitting, etc. all the way to arriving at a fully track tested, verifiable drivetrain results pre-production unit/s- say 5 million (put in a more realistic number Ty) then VCs might bite rather than asking for 100-200 million without much to show but a promise.

    I don't think there's any way Roush would do it pro bono but I'm also not sure how much they'd need nor how involved they'll be. Will they just be working the tuning of the engine to work with the lighter weight Elio and balancing that need with the transmission? Or perhaps they'll also be tuning the suspension and steering... I COULD see Roush entering as a manufacturing partner of sorts to have a continual stream of revenue while getting their feet in the door but given their past, it doesn't make a lot of sense as the Elio won't exactly be a sporty ride.

    Stating the obvious for clarity's sake?
