Re: Toyota Simulator
Those are the things you think should work, but in an interview with a Prius owner, she said that she tried to put it in neutral and nothing happened (the trans is under a huge load, remember....it takes a ton of force to unmesh loaded gears). Many Toyotas (Lexus) are push button ignition. A push button that tells the computer to start the engine (as stop it too?). She burned her brakes up getting the thing to stop. Hybrid brakes use some of the momentum to recharge itself on decel and braking. IT decides how much braking force you can actually apply.
No direct way to control throttle or ignition and under too much load to knock out of gear = you are along for the ride.
Ain't technology great?
