Yes, he keeps acting as if I'm wanting to move my entire setup with only the Prius' motor, I know that won't work.

I'm simply looking for the Prius motor(s?) to add an extra 20 or so ft-lbs to make taking off from still, and maintaining speed up hills a little easier. I know that asking 20 ft lbs from those motors will barely strain them at all; I'm sure I could ask for 100 ft lbs from them and they would still be fine.
