Extra, Extra Read All About It: Scion Headlines Around the Web 4.0
BY Scion CM
We've had a lot of racing on the mind here at Scion Owners lately – from Scion Racing team bios and Formula Drift coverage to tC owner & autocross driver Tony Cambio…winter is ending and race season has officially began! So for this Extra, Extra version we thought we'd bring you some racing related news and info. But not before we share this sweet photographer we came across…
Mind of T is a proud Scion Owner himself, with his Minty xB. He shoots *mostly* cars, with plenty of Scions included, and shares his work on his site Mind of T.
This BluPanda tC video is a good example of both his work and a beautiful NorCal-based Scion tC.
Formula Drift Round 1: Streets of Long Beach happened just a couple of weeks ago. We've already featured some pictures in our forums, but finding these pictures and coverage at Stance Works was a treat! To catch all of the details of the FR-S's first race weekend, check out GReddy's blog.
Speaking of the FR-S…Edmunds just did the first FR-S dyno test. They confirmed factory horsepower estimates by doing their own – showing 174 horsepower to the wheels. (If you need help understanding the difference between engine horsepower vs. wheel horsepower, Edmunds has a great article about that too, available here.)
This coming weekend, World/DESCENDANT Racing and the F'Wing tC 2.0 begins its official season at the Global Time Attack Opener at Buttonwillow Raceway. Learn more about this record breaking tC in this YouTube video or follow along with the World Racing team by subscribing to their YouTube channel.
People who get excited about racing also get excited about engine sounds. If that's you, you've gotta check out this Austrailian teenager. His engine impressions are so realistic you won't believe they're not coming from an actual car!
Last but not least, we had to share this golden nugget. Audri, a young boy, set out to build a complicated Rube Goldberg machine...but what we see is a racer in the making – it's all summed up in his mantra, "try and try again." Keep at it buddy!
