    Here is what the "little red button" does.

    A small red steering wheel button lets you select from five options for the hybrid powertrain: E-Power (all-electric, which can run for up to 16 miles), Hybrid (which uses gas and electric power for maximum efficiency), Sport Hybrid (a more aggressive version of Hybrid), Race Hybrid (in which the electric motors offer short bursts of high output), and Hot Lap (which drains the batteries in an all-out attempt for maximum speed.)

    Damn!

    And I thought that the 150 club referred to the number of seconds at Buttonwillow.
