    - What's goin' on guys? It's Andrew from Fitment, Inc. Today we've got this sweet-ass drift car behind me. It's a 2008 Pontiac Solstice GXT, let's go check it out.

    Alright guys, so like I said we have this 2008 Pontiac Solstice GXT. Now this is a drift car. This thing's definitely seen a lot of track time, a lot of abuse. Awesome set of wheels on this one. So he has a black chrome Cosmis racing wheels. And this is actually the XT006R. These are 18 by nine and a half, and this is a plus 10 offset. And if you look back here, Mario, you can see he's actually got a one inch spacer. So this is 18 by nine and a half all the way around. It's a square setup, it's not staggered. One inch spacer on the front, and then one inch spacer on the back. For tires, he's got the Michelin SuperSports. This tire is gonna be a 255/40. So definitely pretty aggressive setup on this. You can see he's got the wide-body flare front and back on here, So real wicked wide stance to beat this thing around the track. Once again, the back, same exact setup. Now for suspension, let's take a peek at this. Cool race car stuff here. So he's rockin' the KW variant free coil overs. So if you take a peek in here you can see he's got'em adjusted. This thing's dialed-in definitely for track time. I'm not gonna talk a ton about the motor because I don't know a ton about it. But if you take a peek, you can see he's got a lot of stuff goin' on. Because it is a GXP, of course, it is turbo. Aftermarket intake, charge pipes, different turbo, and it's tuned. So aside from this being a wide-body with flares, he's also done a lot of gutting because it is a drift car. So like I said this thing has been used and abused. Seen a lot of track time. He's got the NRG quick-release wheel on it. Hydraulic handbrake. And this thing is just absolutely stripped. He's got all the plexi windows, side, on the back. Of course gotta keep it legal for the track. Super-cool bumper here, too, in the back. This is all custom built. All welded-in fab for the rear here. It's definitely got a great lookin' stance. You can see with this big fender flare hangin' off the back. So yeah, a super-cool car, glad it rolled by the shop. It's not all the time that you get to see drift cars and race cars. Of course we're used to seeing a lot of the stand stuff. But thanks for checkin' us out. Make sure you guys check us out on YouTube. Check us out on Facebook, check us out on Instagram. We'll be posting more videos. Peace.

    I've always been going through different ones, trying different things. Just always been one of my favorite things is modifying the vehicle or changing anything that I can about it.
