I haven't had an opportunity to drive an i3. They seem to be an underrated EV.
The R/T Charger AWD is a great one to have in your fleet. I'm with you I'm surprised they weren't more popular.
I'm not too familiar with the Lingenfelter Corvette. What kind of changes did they do to it?
On the 'vette...Cam, Heads, Intake manifold and shorty headers. Makes 400 / 400 at the wheels, weighs 3200 lbs. 6 speed with a Hurst short-throw shifter.
The i3 chassis was done by the guy that did the original BMW-era MINI, but it's rear drive, lighter and has way more torque than a Cooper S. Not a great car on the top end, but for quite a while it was BMW's quickest car from 0-30 MPH, which was perfect for in the cities that it was designed for. The "s" version is lowered, has a wider track, better brakes, and a "sport" mode that tightens up the steering and generates a bit more torque (about 8%). All carbon fiber chassis and passenger cell. This is our second...the first one get totaled when a deer arrived OUT OF THE SKY from above in front of my wife at about 65 MPH...that destroyed the windshield, but the rest of the car shrugged it off.
