This forum looks like a place to hang...So a little about me...

Born in Houston TX..moved to Japan in 2004-2012..now I'm currently living in Wichita KS (military..).

I am a proud owner on a 2011 army rock metallic Scion xB 5 speed. So far, the car is a blast to drive. The family loves it. 28 miles to the gallon driving to work... Awesome car. It also handles great in it's stock form, easy to drive, the power not too fast but not to slow, and working in it is a breeze.

This is the second car I ever own in the USA and the 10th car over all counting Japan. Other cars being 2000 ford foucs, 98 honda prelude, 96 toyota starlet, 93 nissan pulsar GTI-R, 97 honda SMX, 2000 nissan serrena, 96 nissan serrena, 96 toyota corolla, and 98 subaru impreza STI type R. The Pulsar, Prelude, and the Impreza were my toys...the others were the family cars.

My goal for the xB is to used it mainly for DD and to track it at Heartland Park for some light circuit track days. At least until I build my STI type R here in the states.

Any guys track there xB on this forum?

welcome to the site man! which branch of the military you in?

As for tracking, I know a few people who do and its a lot of fun. You'll want to do a rear sway bar first, it will give you the most dramatic change in handling since there is no rear sway on these cars. Then if you feel it necessary do the front strut brace, it doesnt change much but it looks nice. Then there is an underbrace you could also add, never seen it used personally.

it's a fun car, you'll def enjoy it!

I'm in the USAF.

First, before I do any mods to it I'm going to take it to heartland park for a track day to get a good feel for myself.

Then maybe Ill start with some gripper tires and work from there.
