These days when you go to a race track, it’s all about who has the coolest pit equipment. The trend started with little 50cc pit bikes, then it was tricked out golf carts and Rhinos, but now the boys over at CARTEL have completely changed the game with their Pit Boss Scion iQ. That’s right, they’ve turned Scion’s new micro car into the best pit cart the world has ever seen!
The first thing that catches your eye is the brilliant two-tone finish featuring House of Colors Electric Blue and black accented with hand-laid pinstriping. The second thing that you’ll notice is the roof, which has been removed to pay homage to generations of chop top lovers and mix in a little old school hot rod design with the new school micro car trend. The body work doesn’t end at the chopped top though, the doors were also chopped and capped and the side skirts were extended and molded together with the front and rear fenders to create a unique seamless look.
Upon closer inspection of the body work, you’ll notice where this car starts to reveal just what makes it the ultimate pit support vehicle. Once you get around to the back of the car you’ll notice a Snap-on tool box custom-molded into the rear bumper, and yes, the drawers really do open and there really are tools in there.
You can’t help but notice the Alpine speakers and subwoofers adorning custom fabricated door and kick panels. The stereo system features two 10” Alpine subwoofers, six Alpine component speakers, and three Alpine amplifiers. The multitude of speakers sits amongst one of the best looking custom interiors we’ve ever seen.
The car was also mini-tubbed in the rear in order to fit 19x9.5” Lorenzo WL028 wheels in the back wrapped in 265/30/19 Toyo Proxes 4 tires. The front also features Lorenzo WL208 wheels in a smaller 18x8” fitment wrapped in 215/35/18 Toyo Proxes tires. Wilwood was tasked with stopping the world’s coolest toolbox with a big brake kit featuring 6-piston front and 4-piston rear calipers and 12-inch rotors.
