Toyota/Scion need to sponsor a mid-engine turboed or SCed xB that has been converted to RWD!

How great would it be to see that thing halling bootie down the drag strip.

um it wouldnt be a scion anymore. just like the pepsi/scion sponsored tc with it's highly modified 3rz.


oh and there's allready a front engine rwd xB . it's on a customized toyota pickup frame. running 20 inch in the rear and 18's up front. it's ugly , all vinyl wrapped . 400 or so hp 22rt motor. so far still unfinished.

In many forms of racing the cars being raced often differ greatly from the production car they are supposed to represent.

Hence the Toyota/Scion sponsored car. Scion body, maybe part of the chassis, and Toyota power to produce a fast 1/4 mile car.

I guess I wasnt as worried about the whole "it wouldnt be a Scion anymore" thing. I was more concerned with getting down the track as fast as possible.

the tc is pretty much nothing scion. it might as well be a funny car. tube chassis , 3rz taco motor , turbo , front to back motor fwd.

the xB with the 22rt is a xb chassis with the floors cut out and then fabricated to fit the modified toyota truck frame.


and i know all about racing with just the shape. and honestly i love the shape but racing on a track is cool but never getting to drive it or show off or go to reg car shows blows. if i could have a daily 200whp rwd xb the car would be just about perfect.

hes wrong. you could get the AWD as an option in japan. also, for engines you had choices of 1.3 or "upgraded" 1.5 (that we have stock).

I would personally love to have an AWD bB, but I could never afford to ship it over. closest i have to one, is the rear bumper. lol. im starting to look at getting possibly the full kit for it if i can. (shorter front and different sides)

hotbox I think we are simply talking about two different things, a daily driver versus an all out race car. I agree having an xB with 200hp as a daily driver would probably be plenty of fun.
