I drove a crz with stick and I think the IMA gives it a great win for such modifications. Maybe even better if you had more power to supplement the IMA charge?

I found the crz didnt mind 6th gear at 35 mph and it was difficult to really lug the engine. I was rather disappoint at the performance at the 50-70 mph range of accelerating for merging in 4-6th gear.

I drove the cvt model too and just didnt like how the cvt shifts or should I say slide like you got a clutch going bad.

It is amazing though how the Insight can do 55mph at under 2 grand.
