Within the first 6 months, he picked up the OEM fog lights, HFP front and rear lip kit, HFP suspension, Progress rear [...]Read Article
Hybrid Racing has been working with Justin on his EM1 for the last few months to get it to where it is today. The car was first built with a turbocharged B16A, but it turned out to have numerous issues and was something that he just really didn’t enjoy. During the turbo build, all of [...]Read Article

Matt and some of his buddies, whose cars we will feature in the future, have become good friends of Hybrid’s throughout his build process and have visited us in Louisiana to pick up some parts and to [...]Read Article
