Only a handful of production cars have ever had a drag coefficient lower than the Gen-1 Insight:

0.25 Honda Insight 1999-2006
0.2455 Tatra 77 1933
0.24 Mercedes-Benz S-Class 2014–Present
0.24 Mercedes-Benz C-Class 2014–Present
0.24 Tesla Model S 2012
0.22 Mercedes-Benz CLA Blue Efficiency Edition 2013-Present
0.212 Tatra T77A 1935
0.195 General Motors EV1 1996
0.189 Volkswagen XL1 2013

I might do a grill block and some under-body panels on Turtle, but mostly I'm trying to improve my driving techniques
Yea I'm trying to learn driving techniques as well, but I'm going to have to somewhat relearn once I get proper tires, because it will take less throttle to accelerate, and maintain speed, so yea.
