WHO IS HYBRID RACING?
In 2001 when the import scene was really hitting its stride I was out there purchasing products and dealing with shops as a customer just like you. My first build was an 89 white CRX with a turbo ZC motor, full paint- the entire works. I spent every night and every dollar on this car, eating at Taco Bell and off of the 99 cent menu at Wendy’s to save cash to get the parts I wanted. I had to deal with guys on eBay and message boards and local shops that just wanted to make a buck off of me. I got tired of getting scammed and even more tired of getting parts that were of low quality, didn’t fit and had no thought put into them. So together with a few close friends we started to take things into our own hands.
We began working on our cars and doing side jobs all the while throwing around ideas for how we would make current products better and how we could get our cars to go faster. After countless B-series swaps we decided to do something unheard of at the time (2002) a Kswap. We figured if Honda took the time to develop an entirely new engine (K-series) we should take the time to check it out. We liked what we saw. Realizing that there were no parts to make this swap happen and no shops that we could call we decided to start developing parts for K-series swaps.
In 2003 we purchased the domain name HYBRID-RACING.COM and registered as a company and with the money we had been saving from doing local swaps we managed to score a small shop to work out of. We were a bunch of teenagers and we set out to change how shops dealt with customers and to develop products that made you step back and say “wow”. We were the first company to release EG mounts, plug and play harnesses, AC kits, shifter cables, fuel line kits, clutch lines and a ton of other Kswap parts. We supported message boards and gave back to the community with our time and money, researching new products to make the swap more cost effective, cleaner and easier.
We created a shop that you could call and just ask questions with no strings attached; no dickhead attitude, just a simple ‘Hey. How are you doing and how can we help?’ You see, we know that you are doing your swap with a buddy in your garage or maybe your just tweaking your setup to get ready for a race and inevitably you have a few questions and who else to call but the guys with experience, right?
So that is HYBRID RACING up until now! We have a ton of new product ideas and we still have the laid back ‘customers come first’ attitude. You have probably noticed on the message boards how quick we are to respond and that we always take care of our customers no matter what.
So if you are ready to start researching the parts you need for a Kswap, or you just need a new clutch for your engine, drop us an email or give us a call. We are devoted to helping you get the parts you need. We have dealer accounts with all of the major brands and we only sell the parts that we use and believe in. At the end of the day it boils down to YOU being able to trust who you call and know that you’re going to get top notch customer service and parts you can trust. You don’t have to take our word for it just search Hybrid Racing on google and see what pops up.
Actor Paul Walker, 40, died Saturday afternoon in a car crash that occurred in Santa Clarita, CA, north of Los Angeles. The death has been confirmed on Walker’s own Facebook page with the following message:
It is with a truly heavy heart that we must confirm that Paul Walker passed away today in a tragic car accident while attending a charity event for his organization Reach Out Worldwide. He was a passenger in a friend's car, in which both lost their lives. We appreciate your patience as we too are stunned and saddened beyond belief by this news. Thank you for keeping his family and friends in your prayers during this very difficult time. We will do our best to keep you apprised on where to send condolences. – #TeamPW
Reports say the car Walker was riding in hit either a post or a tree before bursting into flames. The driver, who has not yet been identified, was also reportedly killed.
Walker, who had appeared in some 32 films throughout his 27-year career, is most well known for starring inThe Fast and the Furious franchise of films as the character Brian O'Connor opposite Dominic Torreto, played by Vin Diesel. The two can be seen together in the above image that was taken earlier this year while they were promoting the release of Fast & Furious 6. The series' seventh film is scheduled to be released in 2014, and Walker himself had previously been reported as saying the studio had already guaranteed an eighth film. Sadly, the future of the franchise without Walker involved is unknown.
Our condolences go out to Walker's family and friends, as well as those of the driver.

These EK rear lips look very very much alike, but there are some very very small differences (besides the color of course).
In the picture above the left Civic has mounted a CTR rear lip, the right Civic has the Type R rear bumper lip.
The picter below will show you the Honda Civic EK 3-doors hatchback 96-00 Pu Design CTR style rear lip and the Type R style rear bumper lip. Look closely at the lines of the lips, left the CTR has strong and sharp lines, as for the Type R on the right the lines are smoot and more round.
