Recently, on January 7, 2015, Team Hybrid reached an epic milestone of celebrating its 20th Anniversary and hosted the event of where it all started in Oxnard, California at James’ family restaurant, China Square. Two decades of tuning greatness and the team is stronger than ever. Today, the team boasts a roster of an average of 75-100 members and hunnyz with chapters in SoCal, NorCal, San Diego (California), Las Vegas (Nevada), Albuquerque (New Mexico) San Antonio (Texas), Taipei (Taiwan) and with plans to continue expanding worldwide.
Future plans are to continue unveiling more exclusive projects, products, models and presentations while maintaining our brand equity. James says, “We do things a certain way because it’s a tradition the team and co-leaders have set for future generations of Hybridz. That’s why Team Hybrid has been here as long as it has and remains one of the top, if not the overall best and most balanced import team the industry has ever seen.” Team Hybrid would like to thank BFGoodrich Tires, Meguiar’s, Mishimoto, K&N Filters, AEM Intakes, Energy Suspension, Password JDM, AMSOIL, StopTech, NRG Innovations, Optima Batteries, Clutchmasters, Takata, Studio Seven and China Square.

Cheers to another 20 years Hybrid Family and Hybrid Hunnyz. “May our legendary tradition continue making import history…”
