On manuals, NASCAR, and Replacement traction batteries
They aren't like the used to be. Way back when, the owners manual and the service manual were the same thing.
Went to my first race year before last and saw a Toyota do fairly well. Don't think that the Prius has a chance in it, though ;)
The rebuilt ones sound like a good deal. You should run your VIN by your friendly Toyota dealer and they can tell you if it had been replaced before or not (useful for those of us who bought a used model.)
Been hearing about the new technology in batteries with gas as the medium instead of liquid or solid state. Should make the batteries lighter if they could ever develop one that has enough charge and deep enough current to last.

Can't get a Camry with a V8 or rear wheel drive, but thats what they race in NASCAR.
