"Fitment All Day Everyday"

While scrolling through the pages of friends we have on 2ND -2- NO1's FaceBook with their very own stanced ride as their profile pic, I had to take a second look when I stumbled upon Rami Qasem and his oh so clean Honda S2000. I was immediately attracted to this beautifully pieced together machine, so I send Rami a message asking if he would like to be featured on our blog. With the stance game growing more and more everyday, the S2000 is undoubtedly one of the most popular cars of choice for "HellaFlush" fitment. But Rami is having no problem standing out from the crowd with his SSR Professor sp1 3-piece wheels (18x9 +19 front; 18x10 +19 rear). This car is proof that you can stand out in a crowd all while maintaining a crisp, clean look.

One of the first questions I had for Rami was what inspired him to get into aggressive fitment. "Decided to go stance when I seen a friend with a WrongFitmentCrew sticker on his VIP style car and wondered what it was for. So I decided to dig deeper and saw a whole new world so to speak. I eventually found some wheels on a limited edition group buy (LE Touge Factory Enkei NTO3+M) and I decided to purchase them and did what I had to do to make them fit. From there on it was fitment all day everyday."

Rami also informed me that other mods to this sexy S2K include intake, header, and exhaust, Ground Control/Koni yellow coils, SSR Professor sp1 3-piece wheels (18x9 +19 front; 18x10 +19 rear), an AP2 exterior conversion all the way around, front fenders are custom flared, and says the rear will be done the same way soon. As for the future? Rami promises more goodies that you will just have to tune in for ;).

INSANE Stance & Offset

I/S/O, or Insane Stance & Offset. Lots of people claim to have achieved this title for their rides. True, many have accomplished a nice "Stance" and may very well have a set of wheels with a low offset, but many fail to put the emphasis on INSANE!!! Steve Nguyen, of TeamRPM & I/S/O, is NOT one of those people. Steve whips around more than just one sick & truly insane ride, but none more impressive, in my opinion, than his 2004 Infiniti G35.

This thing's set up is the DEFINITION of Insane Stance & Offset, sitting on a rare set of Work VS-MS wheels (20x9.5 -9 front, 20x11 - 15 rear). And when I say rare, I mean rare. This set is the ONLY SET in the US, & is the FIRST set to be done in Extreme Gold in the world. In other words, you ain't got these. However, Steve knows wheels are not the only thing necessary for an Insane Stance, so he opted for Tein Comfort Sport Coilovers, but says they will be removed in favor of a D2 Air Suspension Set Up shortly. But a sick set of shoes is not the only thing that sets this G apart from the crowd. Steve has this thing fitted with a Nismo Front Bumper, Ings+1 Side Skirts, a Nismo Style Carbon Fiber Rear Diffuser made by Black Top Aero, & a Mastergrade v2 Carbon Fiber Trunk.

Now you may be thinking to yourself, this beast is sure sexy, but its got to be all show and no go. Well, I would like to inform you that you are wrong. To match the G35's performance with its sick exterior, Steve has installed Wiseco 11:1 OEM Size pistons, Nismo R-Tune Cams, an Injen Cold Air Intake, HKS exhaust, Full CNC port and polish, and a 3 angle valve job all done by RLZ Engineering.

Mod List:
2004 ivory pearl Infiniti G35
2006 Lexus Glacier Frost Mica (painted by Chris Yu)
2002 Lexus Black Onyx painted roof (painted by Chris Yu)

Ings+1 SideSkirts

DirtySouthHustle x UrbanFLTH Meet

Here are a few pics from one of the most laid back, relaxed meets I've ever attended. With great food, awesome people, amazing cars, and a little Southern Hospitality, the DSHxUrbanFLTH meet will go down as one of the best, if not the best meet of the year. Thanks a lot for putting this thing together, and we're definitely looking forward to doing it again very soon!
