It’s a trap. Trust me, the torque that electric motors put out on some hybrids and full electric vehicles is way more than you gas powered V8 ever dreamed of. They will leave you scraping to get around them before hitting someone head on.
@clintfromhere, tell that to the G-wiz
@clintfromhere, hi, prius owner here. My old prius got totalled resently and I got a rental while the insurance did it's thing. So lemme tell you, I was accelerating like a mad man in that ford. As soon as I got the insurance money and bought another prius, I feel like I'm a turtle with ankle weights.
Tl;dr - my glorfied golf cart can't keep up with the big boys.
@clintfromhere, v8? I have a 4 cylendar punch line. My dad calls it a lima-bean. I named it meg. Whenever it struggles and whines when its trying to reach 60km in the morning i just say to it "shut up, meg"
.............i need that bumper sticker
@clintfromhere, you'd be right when talking about Teslas or other higher performance electric vehicles, but not a Prius haha.
@PunnyBaker, you need that turbo! I have a 4 cylinder and it pulls hard and is a hoot to drive :)
@merimar3, gotta get that naturally aspirated V8
@Good Ol Days, nothing wrong with a turbo. I had a NA V6 and my I4 would destroy it. I don't have anything against V8s though. But look at the new Ford GT. It doesn't even have a V8!
@merimar3, yeah my brother has a twin turbo straight six. Turbo is great I just prefer a v8 because of nasty growl it has a turbo car just doesn’t give the right sound.
@Good Ol Days, I like the whine of the turbo spool a lot actually haha. My engine has a surprising growl for an I4, but of course that V8 growl cannot be beaten!
@clintfromhere, Priuses only suck at going up long hills
@clintfromhere, I literally floor it in my Prius. I need this sticker
@Good Ol Days, nah supercharged v8. Nothing better than a v8 growl with the whine/scream of a supercharger
@merimar3, ooh. What do you drive? I drive a fiesta st. Got a Cobb cat back exhaust on it with a blow off valve and it’s awesome
@Zerker Shark, I drive a Focus ST! No need for me to convince you of how great our little turbocharged 4 cylinders are! I don't have a BOV or an aftermarket exhaust. I have the GREEN filter though and it actually makes the turbo spool more noticeable which is fun to hear on nice days with the windows down. I also have the Rallyarmor mudflaps in black with red lettering. Don't have any performance mods on mine. 252hp is plenty of power for me. The torque pulls so hard - love slamming it in second gear. I adore my ST. Fantastic cars man! Mine is a 2016 in Oxford White. What about yours?
@merimar3, a man of culture appears!! I have a 2016 Kona Blue fiesta with the black rims. So far the only mods I have are the exhaust and BOV. But I wanna get an intercooler, intake, and catted downpipe with a tune for max gains. But honestly just the exhaust alone would’ve sufficed. I love my FiST.
@Zerker Shark, cheers to you good sir! The Kona Blue is a pretty color. I have plenty of money tied up elsewhere, so even if I wanted to, I couldn't do any mods now really. The intercooler is a good choice. I always heard Depot Racing makes a solid intercooler. Good luck with it all! What state are you in if you don't mind me asking?
@merimar3, oh I’m in California. So smog is a big issue or I would’ve straight piped.
@Zerker Shark, ahh right. I'm in Indiana. Plenty of diesel trucks here lol. No smog concerns.
My mom had a prius, when she had the transmission in eco mode it was real slow, but when I drove it I put it in sport mode and I could spin the tires and get it to 105mph. The ride was always pretty rough tho
I hope in secret it's the Priusrt
I don't get this at all
@JeffTheGinger, It's a Prius, So the pedal is all the way down and is still going slow as fvck
Ain’t even mad
