Fireworks out of a Law Rocket Launcher is always cool!
Stage 2 Decendant Turbo will be installed in the near future and we will see where it goes from there. Take care and play hard, you only live once!
As of now the car is slow as a parachute even with all the bolt ons! All the weight you save from Carbon Fiber dont mean much with 300 lbs of boom boom music in the trunk! So Turbo is the only way to go.
The way she stands now
Hot Import Nights Miami Beach Oct 2012
Hottest Scion Trophy
Seibon Carbon fiber Fenders +10mm
Satin mixed Rhino
I needed something durable for the Mississippi rocks on the road and Love Bugs of Florida! Its diff plus its unique. It's not like the Rhino Lining we see on truck beds everyday, its smooth to the touch and will not dull or fade. It did add a few pounds but then again Im not Chris Rado with a super light power/weight ratio and need to go extreamly fast!
As a daily driver this means more and it is bad. No Trailor Queen here!
Lambo Doors over rated? Maybe!
My kit and install Free! I love it!
Pros: Looks realy cool, nice in tight parking lots, bling factor to the none automotive people.
Cons: Expensive (a good kit like VDI inc.), install expensive. Cold weather + gass shocks = no work.
Other then that, why the hell not its cool!

12 June 2010 Shops at the Wiregrass Car Show. Took Best in Show.
When the show gets boring we rocked out to Rockband and Need for Speed Shift.
Like the Rockband Idea, a night of drinking came up with the driving in the front seat of the car for that virtual reality feel. It worked swell!
So you know, this is for shows only! I dont drive to work with Rock Band hanging out my trunk! The best question is how do you drive with the tv in the way! WOW!

Meet lil chica!
About me, I grew up in pennsylvania around classic and muscle cars all my life. growing up our parents had the car of their dreams from low riders to muscle cars. I built a 14 inch lifted 1989 S-10 blazer at 16 and got praised. Modifying my daily driver was a hobby and individuality of myself. I am 34 yrs old and still love all my cars i owned. I have always wanted a Scion tC since they first came out, and after a year in Iraq with the U.S. Army on my second tour, I finally got it in Feb 09. It is an addicting habit to customize your pride and joy and I enjoy every minute of it. My car is a daily driver and I travel alot to differeant Army bases to train troops going to Iraq and Afiganistan. Life is too short so enjoy it, play hard and never quit.
WARNING! WARNING! Be sure to include your life partner when working on your ride!
Update! Even though Im now divorced still involve your life partner, mine is now Yengling light on tap!
My car is fun to play with but the woman are funner!
Here is my Carsponsors web page. They helped me out a hell of alot. http://www.carsponsors.com/520577
