Seriously, though, I drive it in Normal probably 98% of the time.

Why would it matter to anyone else what mode you're in?

Pssst... it's a joke.

The reason I don't drive it in Sport mode more is because I don't like the way it hangs on to gears before upshifting, even under light acceleration.

I don't like that about sport mode either.
I also think that street racing is a joke.

Eh, what's the fun in driving something other than a Prius if you can't have a little fun from time to time?

My story wasn't (intended to be) so much about outrunning a Barcolounger on wheels as it was about demonstrating to the driver of said Barcolounger on wheels that he wasn't driving a hot rod, but was instead at the helm of the USS Loudenslow.

Street racing is serious business.

I bet that lesson really resonated with him.

fun is good. just do it in the right place so folks, other than you, won't get hurt.
