Hight Octane TV

We have been chosen to be one of the two teams featured on High Octane TV, cable VOD and mobile devices for HIN-LA 2006. As most of you know, the footage of us has been shoot already.

Below is a link to the broadband site in addition all the shows are available on cable VOD and for mobile devices.


The first HIN show went live on the network this week (the HIN preview/intro show).

A new show will be added each week from now on, the HIN shows will not air chronologically as in 3-episodes from LA back to back they will rotate starting with one show from LA>Vegas>SF>Phoenix and so on back to a new episodes from each location…

Here are the air dates for the upcoming Hot Import Nights shows: Remember if you have digital cable I recommend watching the shows on TV as the picture quality is much better as opposed to broadband or mobile etc

I just arrived in Las Vegas, and I do not plan on posting final pics of the Scion Xa until after SEMA. But I will share a great article with all of you about the much hyped Scion build off that UrbanRacer.com wrote on 102606. URC staff paid their repects and represented us fairly accurately. Of course the specification list and photochop’d sketches of our project is only pre-liminary, but it gives all of you an idea.




PAS – April/May 2006

Congratulations to the team on a full feature exclusive “Team” article in April/May 2006 Perforamcne Auto & Sound Magazine on pgs 200-201.

Our team continues to be recognized as “the” import team and like I said earlier this year, more to come. Just wait and see.

Its going to be another year of the Hybridz. Wait till the news I drop on you guys at our April and May meetings.

Continue to do your individual part and I thank those that continue to give without any conditions or demands.

Hybrid luv,

James Lin
