    Team Hybrid - News 11/02/09

    Hybridz, Friends & Guests:

    A star is born everyday in Team Hybrid. I have some hot news to release as more big waves of greatness are coming esp. this SEMA week. As always, we keep everything behind the scenes until it becomes a reality.

    Here are some sneak previews of what is to come.

    1. Top secret debut out of SoCal Chapter @ SEMA 2009. This Hybrid car has completed a photoshoot for a poster that will be passed out @ SEMA. The behind the scenes pictures of the photoshoot will be posted up soon as well as the poster which was shot along side another SoCal Chapter Hybrid car.



    2. Our WRX from LV Chapter in the feature vehicle area @ SEMA 2009 w/ Endura-Tech has received a color change.



    3. Our 240 from LV Chapter in the feature vehicle area @ SEMA 2009 w/ Endura-Tech has received new shoes.

    4. Our Mirage from LV Chapter in the North Hall area @ SEMA 2009 w/ WP Pro is not only now @ 742awhp, but became "King of the Streets" last Thursday night in LV. As most of you know by now, having 1 accomplishment in a week or a month is not enough in Team Hybrid, but our Mirage is also scheduled to be filmed for the SEMA 2009 Live Experience (A $3000.00 investment thanks to WP Pro).

    5. Our xB from LV Chapter has received a major engine turbo upgrade. The car will make its debut @ this month's 360 Import Car Show and/or Motor Trend International Auto Show which are all held in Las Vegas.



    Like I said earlier, this is amazing work by our members which are only part of the big wave consisted for this week. Once this settles down, I'll release more news for this week and when the time is right, the new projects, new hunnyz, new sponsors and new top secret cars set to debut in 2010.

    This is how a true import team is built and performs year after year. Now, after almost @ 15 years, one can easily spot a flash in the pan when there is STILL a Team Hybrid to compare itself too.

    Hybrid luv,

    James Lin

    A star is born everyday in Team Hybrid. I have some more hot news to release as more waves of greatness are coming. As always, we keep everything behind the scenes until it becomes a reality.

    Here are some sneak previews of what is to come.

    1. Our WRX Wagon from LV Chapter will make its debut @ Motor Trend Auto Show in LV on 11/27-29 with possible new wide body panels, front bumper and paint job.





    2. We have 6 award winning and/or published LV Chapter Hybrid cars that will represent and be on display @ the "invite only" Motor Trend Auto Show @ the LV Convention Ctr. (Hall S-3) from 11/27-29.

    Archie Concon's 2000 Mitsubishi Mirage.
    Charleston Penesa's 2006 Mitsubishi Lancer EVO IX.
    Rodney Manandik's 2002 Subaru Wrx.
    Tom Milroy's 2002 Subaru WRX Wagon.
    Robert Green's 2004 Scion xb.
    Nick Irie's 1995 Nissan 240.

    3. On 11/14, Archie's Mirage did two quarter mile passes. Both passes were identical at 11.22 at 137mph on street tires (KDW's) plus the track was not prep. The Race-Street-Show Mirage should be in the 10's w/ the track prep correctly as well as some lighter rims on BFGoodrich R1 drag radials. I quote Archie since he puts it best, "Hybrid FTW all day."



    4. On 11/15, Charleston wrapped up his phone interview with Import Tuner for his Tangelo EVO feature estimated to be due out Jan/Feb. 2010 issue.

    5. On 11/15, Rodney Manandik's 2002 Subaru Wrx completed his photoshoot for a full feature with Performance Auto & Sound Magazine.

    This is the top 5 as of today, I'll release more news when the time is right esp. the new projects, new hunnyz, new sponsors and new top secret cars set to debut in 2010.

This was his 1st time and he won 2nd place & hit 10's on street tires (KDW), HRE wheels, WP Pro BBK and full interior. 9's in the near future?

    James, no doubt the mirage will run 9's but i have to change atleast 3 things. sticky tires (drag radials or slicks), lighter wheels (no way these HRE can do it, its too heavy lol), and get a small brakes... and my tuner said, more seating time for me at the tracks and shift faster lol..

    A star is born everyday in Team Hybrid. Now, we are officially less than 30 days away from hitting one of our greatest achievements of all time: The 15 year mark with the title of being the #1 import team once again. How impossible... How sweet... and How fitting! This is the first great wave of news for our new month of December & our second consecutive month so it makes our holiday season even better. We could not of ended this banner year we had any better.

    Here are some sneak previews of what is to come and what has arrived. Performance and results of all our claims, actions and words!

    1. Super Street January 2010 Issue has wished us a "Happy 15th Year Birthday." Industry respect by one of the most trusted and respected import magazines for over a decade and on the market today. When have any of you ever seen Super Street give luv to any of the past or present import teams like this? I wonder what other import tuning magazines will be honoring us with their respects.





    2. I have in my hands before it even hits news stands, the finished and ready for print article of our Twin Turbo-Honda Accord built by Sunny from SoCal Chapter. Here is a sneak preview of the full feature that will be in Performance Auto and Sound Magazine which will hit news stands nationwide in the January 2010 issue. (Full article will be released in advanced before the public sees it to our members in the private forums)



    3. Team Hybrid in a 3 page full feature in Performance Auto & Sound Magazine - Top 12 Teams "Enthusiast Edition" 2009 Issue 7, Volume 11, pgs 056-059. Special issue is also called "Rides Edition" which showcases inside >>"Best of the Best" the Top 12 Import Teams in North America. Here is the article framed and ready for purchase (just in time for the holidays) @ a discounted Hybrid price which I already arranged with a company called In the News. Hybrid management working behind the scenes to continue to provide benefits for their members. If interested, please contact or PM me.



    4. Sneak preview of a special and top secret SoCal Chapter project car that will debut sometime in 2010.



    5. The onslaught of magazines and debut of special 2010 project cars has already begun and we are still only in 2009. We are already starting off our up and coming 15th year on the right foot by being the import team to be published first in most of the major import magazines January 2010 issue which is also "the" month of our January 7 - 15th anniversary date. This is only a fraction of what is to come. Our pipeline continues to grow. As I said before, "If this is Still not enough and to make sure everyone Never Forgets about Team Hybrid, I am personally & indirectly going to show the import scene This is How We Do It with all that is coming. :0)." Almost everything Team Hybrid touches turns into gold. Almost everything I promised this team and our members have come true. Believe me, I am not even close to being done yet and more is already up my sleeve. I know the current co-leaders/chapter directors/members/hunnyz/probies are with me too. Together, we will reach this milestone which most would deem impossible. Trust me, I have heard it time and time again (only adds fuel to my fire), but as always, we continue to find a way to elevate it and pull off the big "W" esp. when it looks impossible. This is what legends do. May our tradition continue making history...

    I cannot contain my excitement (3:30am in China) especially knowing what went down finally yesterday afternoon & all the hard work behind the scenes to put it all together. More of the project is being worked on as we speak with the individuals in charge, but this is VERY VERY special for 2010 esp. for March debut. I will release the details soon in my next 1-2 top 5 news updates. But for now, just know a regular day for most of us yesterday was something amazing & very huge once again for our legendary and almost 15 year old team!
