In my Escape, the drive motor starts the explodatron, and it's encased in the transmission. Makes switching between electric and hybrid modes really smooth to the point you don't feel it at all. Yes, my 4,000lbs behemoth can drive itself at 70mph purely on electric. Is very nice, you should get one.

Depends how it's done. Mild-hybrid's use SMG's -- Starter Motor/Generator. Which also provides a bit of boost. Some hybrids incorporate the electric motor into the transmission, so that could in theory do the same thing.

Maybe I should. But I won't. :)
Recently started doing a couple of HPDE's each year.
On that topic, I've ordered an aftermarket suspension for the car; this has new shocks, springs, and a lot of adjustability.
I don't normally do my own work, but this is going to be an exception. After I've had a chance to review the documentation, I'll be driving the >=5.5 hrs to my dad's place to use his lift, to install this thing myself and learn the adjustments.
