The Scion FR-S has truly been the hottest car in scene right now. And anyone can tell just by the amount of involvement various groups have had putting on FR-S themed events such as this. The high participation and involvement of the community attending these events is also evident of the interest in this car.

Scion cars and scary monsters for free!
This is the 9th straight year that Scion has come through to really show their appreciation to all the Scion Owners. At least 3,000 Scions filled with more than 10,000 Scion Owners and their guests all gathered at Knott’s Scary Farm for a free event and entry to the the 40th Halloween Haunt. All for just owning a Scion and providing a toy donation for Toys for Tots. A good cause and a good event from a good automotive brand.
Back in September, Paul Dabao of Toyota approached me with an idea on creating a full-sized Scion xB Switch . The concept behind the initial plan was to create an ultimate support vehicle for the r/c world. The xB would be complete with a pull-out table, battery chargers, storage, tool chest, and entertainment – while replicating the 1:10 r/c model with body pins and antenna.

Oh, it has been about 2 or so weeks since we had our first Scion Switch GT (get together). It was actually held on January 29th @ Island Motor sports. I was threaten and even extorted that if I didn’t post and share pictures of the event I would lose my dim sum privileges – I concurred. Although I don’t remember much of yesterday, two weeks was definitely stretching my memory bank. You see, there are a lot of things going on, some I can share, some I can not. What I can share is we are planning ‘encore – an automotive charity shindig’, more on that in a few weeks. But what I do recall was this is the first Scion Switch GT event that was hosted by Island Motorsports, in conjunction with HPI Racing, Scion Optomized, and us – Scion Evolution.

It’s been 4 months since the HPI Scion xB RC Car was made available from any Scion dealer. By now I think there’s quite a few Scion owners who have purchased the Scion xB. SE, with the assistance of HPI Racing and Scion Optomize will hold an RC Get-Together at Island Motorsports on January 29th, 2011 from 10am to 2pm. Bring your RC xB car and meet your fellow enthusiasts, share stories and set-ups, drive your car in our racetrack. HPI has a lot of requests for the xB Clear Bodies and it will be available soon. For this Get-Together, there will be a limited supply of Clear Bodies to be raffled out, maybe some Option Parts for your RC xB and of course we will have some Swags from Scion optomize. So come join the fun, it will be a relax day, bring your A-game and drive your car in our racetrack. Best of all, it’s FREE. See you there.
