As soon as we got into Las Vegas we checked-in at our hotels and then headed straight for the SEMA show. We got there just in time to pick up our media badges and stop by the Scion booth before the end of the show.

We were able to see these builds at the Scion SEMA media preview party, but finally seeing them on display meant that we were very close to hearing the winner of this whole thing.

On October 13, 2013, Scion Evolution (@scionevolution) & DaYUUM (@instadayuum), along with TJIN Edition (@tjinedition), participated in the 23rd Walk presented by the Disneyland® Resort.

The CHOC walk was created in 1990 to allow friends and family to come together at the Disneyland® Resort for the children in our community. To raise awareness as well as donations to help CHOC Children’s mission to nurture, advance and protect the health and well being of children. Last year was the first year Scion Evolution & DaYUUM participated in the CHOC Walk and we were able to raise $1,525 that went towards CHOC Children’s new patient tower. This year we were able to surpass that and raised a total of $2,020!

Yup after pulling an all nighter in West Covina for the DaYUUM/Guppy Tea House Summer Shindig, we were up bright and early at Irwindale Speedway for Longo Scion‘s 10 year anniversary / Longo Lexus‘ Pursuit4. Some of us overslept, but we all made it with a nice big 8 +1 car display courtesy from Young from FRS86. Thanks dude!

Summer Shindig

DaYUUM threw a big party at Mash Up 2 for the Guppy Tea House Temple City grand opening, so when Guppy Tea House started planning a new location in West Covina, CA, you knew another major event was in the works too.

The Summer Shindig, gave people a Hawaii-like luau to cope with the recent summer heat in the SoCal. And it was truly just like Hawaii; with overcast, humidity, and even spots of light rain here and there. All this added to the awesome atmosphere on the night as the weather stayed clear and kept the guests from feeling too hot or too cold, well at least too cold (more on that later, hehe).

ToyotaFEST 2013 Pt. I – ScionFEST

 
Events

Toyota Owner’s and Restorer’s Club originated with the idea of preserving the Toyota heritage. Enthusiasts would preserve and restore classic Toyota vehicles, such as models dating before 1985. This is particular difficult for Scion owners, who’s brand was barely founded back in 2002. When Toyotafest started, the Scion brand wasn’t even founded yet.

But never fear, all this means is that Scion owners just have to take a different approach to building their vehicles. True to Scion’s slogan, “customize or die,” Scion owners have been known for expressing their creativity. From subtle and sleek to wild and crazy, there was no shortage in the amount of Scion builds at Toyotafest. For part one, we will take a look at some of the best at Toyotafest, or maybe I should say Scionfest.

‘Tis the season when family and friends gather together, usually over lots and lots of food! Luckily for us, our Scion Evolution family does this all year ’round; twice a month. But for this holiday season, we wanted to do something a little nicer, a little bigger, a little funner!

First there was the Scion FR-S Tour of LA, then there was 86fest, followed by the Scion FR-S to SEMA, and now…the Scion FR-S Cup!
Why? Because FR-S

FRSCup073

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.

Backstage Pass: The Build of Scion and HPI Racing’s 1:1 Switch xB

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.
