somebody needs to do a pro street scion...you know, tubbed w/big ol'wheelie bars and a snorkel hood scoop. then paint it pepto-pink with some gaudy lime green graphics! woo-hoo! maybe nobody will notice its actually fwd...if it had those skinny drag race tires up front you could do some crazy burnouts..
i already tried tubbing the back. ok, well i looked into it. the problem is that the wheel well is right where the door is. in a coupe or a truck it would be so easy and i would have done it already, but for this car, you would have to reconstruct the entire rear door as well as pretty much take out the rear seating to put the tubs in the back. it is possible, and for a full show car you could totally make it happen, but i have to use my car as a daily driver. if i had another xB, i would do it. you could make a nice fiberglass thing for the rear area and it would look good. anyway, someone needs to do it. just make sure you understand how much work it will be to make the tire clear the door. body dropping a unibody is harder than a truck as well.
i don't think the truck community realizes how hard it is to do that on a scion compared to a frame and body truck. a preofessional fabricator would probably take a couple months minimum to body drop a scion. so who knows...one might be being done right now.
