I think I'm on to something. What about using a Toyota floor mat or gas pedal to get a bump in your trap speed?

I'm thinking about another angle. I thought about putting a Toyota floor mat in everything I own. That way if I get pulled over for speeding I could just tell the cop - "Whew, I just barely got that thing out from under the gas pedal - that was a close one." On another note - just how much "acceleration" could a Prius have?!?!?!?! Clay

I wish I knew someone with a Prius just so i could put a 'chute on the back *in case of failure*

A kite may be enough though, have to see how big of a kite Wally world sells...

I noticed that Alanobi racing was able to fix the Run Away Acceleration problem at the Gaternationals as none of his Toyotas made it into eliminations.
