From the Prius forum:

http://priuschat.com/index.php?showtopic=16201&st=0

Hey all,
not how many of you have done this, but i have found it interesting and amusing at times how many people you can get to race you in your eco car prius, i know i know it isnt what its ment to do but come on, the car has an insane amount of torque of the line and i just wanted to see what if any has any one else raced and what were the results of that.
me personaly here is my best recolection

honda civic del sol vs. Toyota prius
Victory for the prius(did this one up in sanmateo on the elcomeeno(sp?) about 2 stoplights away from the merge into one lane heading north .) cool.gif

crotch rocket(i think it was a kawasaki.. but my recolection on what kind of jap sport bike it was is not so good ) vs prius
prius kept up with the bike through the first gear (did this one over in freemont CA heading twords the dumbarton bridge) mad.gif

Mustang GT 5.0 VS. prius
(a personal note on this one, it was an up hill and around a curve race) Victory for the prius cool.gif
(location Canada College Farm hill blvd entrence heading up to the college)

havent managed to find a element to race though i would realy love to.. alright thats my story so far
oo.. good subject

I know i races and NSX.. er.. the lower end acura on the highway.. i kept up with it.. it looked a little shakey.. i passed it in the end. hehe

I raced the 400h against a viper on a roll start.. he couldn't catch up. lol
Racing people who arent even paying attention to them. Theyre as bad as ricers.

That dude is definately smelling his own farts.... Either that are those damn Prius batteries are getting exposed to salt water and he's sucking toxic fumes.

This is even funnier! He raced an M3! What a dork! You gotta love his excuse for losing!

"i tried when racing an M3 down a highway.. all downhill.. only reason he beat me ( i had low profiles on the car) is because he tops around 150."

Yeah, bud....I'm sure that the speed limiter on the Prius was the reason you lost!

The only hybrid that's pretty fast is the '07 Lexus GS450h. 340hp and 0-60 in 5.2, not bad.

Racing a Prius?!


WHAT THE ****?!?!?!?!


That completely defeats the purpose of owning one! It's like a little dumbass gimp 4th grader trying to out bench press the captain of the high school football team!

I drove my dad's LS400 to work today (locked my keys in the Brougham last night) and I got smoked, absolutely smoked! by a Prius. I couldn't believe it. I was driving home from work going about 72-73 on the beltway when he glides up next to me and looks over at me, and gives me the "let's go" motion with his hand. We both stomp it, and fly up to about 120 when I let off. By this time, he's got at least 5 or 6 car lengths on me and I start crying. I mean, I was weeping bittery like a little bitch! I was crying so hard because I got beat by a Prius that I couldn't see the road but I was still coasting down from 120 mph, so I missed the bend in the freeway and rolled the car. Next thing I knew, I woke up in the hospital, a broken man, and higher than hell on morphine and other drugs.

No, wait a minute, that wasn't me, that was any guy who tries to race his Prius and thinks it's cool, cause that's the only way you'd ever be able to justify such. Damn drugs, look at what you did! You've poisoned the mind of a sandal-wearing, Evian-drinking, MPR listener!

Tell me, sister morphine, when are you coming 'round again?

I had one of those damn things cut me off in the middle lane on I-5 between Portland and Salem. He wasn't even doing the posted 65 MPH speed limit.

I floored Betty and whooshed past him. Just the pass probably used more gas—and spewed out more pollution—than his overgrown roller skate used on its entire trip.

I'm sure the nerdy little greenie behind the wheel was appalled. I hope so anyway.

Hey! I wear Birkenstocks and listen to NPR, but I draw the line at Evian water. And I've got two big V-8-powered American gas guzzlers in my garage.

I've got FOUR big american V-8 gas guzzlers in my garage! Unfortunately, none of them are in a vehicle, or even hooked on an engine stand ready to be put into a vehicle. :(

...nevermind the fact that while they are "racing" (the word doesn't even seem to apply here), their little "Pious" loses the only thing it had going for it.

It's far from fast, but my eta will return 25-30mpg while being beat on all day, and does absolutely everything better than a Prius. It was built in 1985, so why do manufacturers 20 years later need a Hybrid being driven strictly a certain way to do better?

It's a "feel good" for the buyer/owner and another new selling point for the car manufacturer. But in reality it's really nothing, as you point out.

yup ....nothing feel beatter then to plug your ridgerator,32 inch TV,and your cirular saw into your pickup and go for a ride ...while your buddy cuts a sheet of plywood .....i tell ya ....its great ....

the tailgateing possiblitys are endless ....i mean , you could bring your entire home entertainment system to the game ....and plug it in ....

and its a nice bonus to get 1-7 mpg over a normal pickup doing it ...

Jesda, why are you on a Prius forums site?!
