Several people daily ask us to run features on their cars, 300ZX’s, Lambo’s, GT-R’s… Okay, that’s a lie, none of that has ever happened. So, when Matt Budziosz approached us, we were more than happy to feature his fine piece of machinery.
Matt hails from Toronto (a local for us here at S.C) representing Division R Performance. This car lays claim to the world’s lowest Matrix. We don’t doubt him. Some (in comments) do. We’ll have more on that in the near future.
As with most cars of this caliber, he has more than enough ICE (in car entertainment for those not in the know). GPS, big subs, big amps, in-dash DVD… I can go on and on and on…
What we really care about is, the exterior and the stance. Exterior bits of note include TRD spoiler, CUSTOM projectors, carbon fibre hood and our favourite, a 3 gallon Air Horn. I guess you can call that an exterior mod?
Stance is taken care of with a set of Tein SuperStreet Coilovers and a TRD Camber kit. Along with XXR 002 16×8 +0 offset rims and Nexen n3000 205/40/16 Tires these combine to give this Matrix a massive drop.
Using the facilities at Droptec Suspensions, the car is measured exactly 1.437 inches from the ground to the cross-member. However, the body hangs a bit lower ;).
The Scraped.Crusaders. love camber as does this car with 4.25 degree’s of camber up front. Matt has attended 4 shows, not surprisingly to us, he has picked up trophies at each event. 3 for having the lowest car and 1 for best Toyota.
AAAANNND he’s not done! Future plans include a new crate motor, more carbon fibre, bigger amps, spacers among others, and perhaps a little more low ( I still spy wheelgap!) just yankin your chain Matt, car is proper!
With an airtank already installed for the Air horn, Matt is constantly urged by others to go bagged. But there’s just something badass about running static.
For more pics, keep an eye out for future prints of Performance Auto & Sound Magazine and GR Tuning Magazine. For a more closeup look, the Matrix will be present at both ImportExpo and ImportFest.
Awesome ride Matt.
