Default The Few, The Proud, All Military Top Scoob 031

In honor of our veteran and enlisted men and women serving in the Armed Forces Nasioc and Top Scoob are very proud to host the 31st round of Top Scoob, The Few, The Proud. We're looking for the best of the best of the best of the best of the nest, with honors, Subarus out there so if you're an enlisted man or veteran and think your Scoob has the sand read the rules and enter, it's only slightly more stressful then bootcamp!




Quote:
It’s easy to enter your car, all you need is a Subaru, a camera, a place to host pictures, a user account here on NASIOC.com, and the ability to type a sentence or two…

The Rules are as follows...
  • Please limit your entry post to only FIVE pictures of your car, whatever you feel best shows off your hard work. Once the voting begins you are allowed to add more pictures to your entry post and/or with new posts. Feel free to post away for as long as you remain in the running.
  • A written description of your ride, the more detailed the better. We’re talking about more than just a mod list, we want you to share the story behind your Scoob. Tell us why and how you bought it, what inspires you to modify it, and what all you’ve done to it and why. Most important is to tell us what you do with your car...race, show, cruise, polish with a diaper, whatever.
    Think of it as your own magazine feature, the better you sell your car to the masses the better the chances of your Subaru becoming a Top Scoob. If you win your words will be used in your car's feature on TopScoob.com so make them count!

  • You're more then welcome to start a campaign thread in your Regional Forum however the General, Off Topic, and Gallery forums are off limits to threads requesting votes. If you already have a thread about your car in the Gallery feel free to bump away. If you don't have a build thread consider starting one!
  • TRASH TALKING is not welcome in this contest. If you need to tear down another competitor to improve your own or a friend's chances please remember this is only a contest intended to be fun for all Subaru enthusiasts.
How it works
  • This is a contest, open to all Nasioc members that own a Subaru.
  • You must be the current owner of the car, no third party entries allowed. If you have a question about your car's eligibility please just ask.
  • When it's time to enter you can do by responding to Top Scoob thread in either Nasioc's Official News, Articles, and Polls Forum, the Member's Car Gallery or check for one of the Top Scoob LOCALS ONLY rounds in NASIOC's regional or international forums. Any themes or restrictions on entries will be clearly described before the contest begins. For example: GC Only, or Wagons Only, or STi, ect. ect. there's a new theme every time.
  • Please only one entry per person.
Voting and Eliminations
  • There are three rounds of voting, Round One = 8 days, Round Two = 8 days, Final Round = 10 days
  • After the First Round only the Top Ten cars move on.
  • After the Second Round only the Top Three move on.
  • The Top Three cars will go head to head to head in a final poll to select who has the next Top Scoob.
  • Votes are automatically reset to zero at the start of each round.
  • In case of a tied vote for the last transfer spot in the first two rounds, the entrants involved will compete in a 24-hour Run Off vote.
    If there is a tied vote for first place in the final round, a 72-hour Run Off vote will decide the winner.

Corpsman Up

United States Navy Corpsman… The best medical profession. Those who are not familiar, Corpsmen are the “Well Versed” medical personnel of the Navy/Marine Corps.

In my opinion, the lifestyle is ideal. Work hard, play harder. The diverse range of men, women, jobs (NEC/MOS) creates an atmosphere for the ultimate learning experiences. Life lessons and technical lessons are plentiful. I enjoy the dynamic involved with the military lifestyle. Being ready to serve means physical training, mental training, and knowing what is required to be prepared. Sharing that passion with the people I served with was fantastic. I disregarded those who were negative, demeaning towards the service or who where enlisted for the wrong reasons. Negativety is inevitable. Staying positive, and motivated is the only way serve, and to live life. My intention was to serve 20 years, at year 6 the PDRL (Permanent Disability Retirement List) had my name on it.

Every day I recollect on active duty life and would go back in without question. There are too many achievements in the service to not stay motivated. Awards, qualifications, advancement, physical readiness scores, earning the respect from Marines (a must for Docs), completing the mission, wearing the uniform, 96hr liberty… the goes on. Video games can be a blast, but there’s nothing like pursing the ranks to be a Master Chief in real life. No complaints necessary... You get out what you put in.

The opportunity to tread throughout the U.S. and all over the world will never be forgotten. To all Armed Forces Members past, present, and future…Thank You.

Fortunately with veteran benefits, I am continuing my career in medicine. The GI Bill alone is not enough, meaning there’s a definite limit to car associated funds. (I’ll let you know when I reach it.)
__________________________________________________ _____________

Anytime you entire a heavily populated military region, there are nice cars to be found. Deployment money, allowances, base pay… used to buy, and modify. As rough as service life may get, a car is somehow a relate-able inanimate object for most military enthusiasts. Whether overseas, long duty hours, trouble with personal life… the car is always an out.

The car for me is a refuge. Always there as the go-to buddy who's consistently motivated to either look sharp or work hard. The fact that I can escape for an hour, if only to wash the car, means some recuperation for me. Inanimate?... Considering the persona and character it projects, the car might as well be alive. Perhaps this is the reason the car receives the attentiveness it does. The medicinal role the car plays in keeping my mind at ease is needed. Maintain, provide quality parts, have the car associate with other cars of high quality… all to keep the car, a part of me, healthy.

In reality, I view the car as a great piece of art. The engineering, design, and creativeness involved with developing a great machine makes the thrill of modifying a car very unique.
__________________________________________________ _________

Considering the route of modifications, in some ways the WRX offered a better starting platform than the WRX STi. Beginning with a base model allowed modification to stay unique. I decided to add what Subaru Tecnica International would to the WRX trim, at my discretion. The most difficult part to my modification plan, is balance. Being unique, without taking the car out of character is the task. That means being pragmatic, yet creative enough to achieve an aesthetically pleasing and powerful car.

Modifying... The mind set is to take the car to the next level. This must be achieved without losing the essence of the STi. The addition of throwback gold Brembo calipers, and acquisition of original STi parts transformed this WRX into a car not available from the factory. The performance aspects of the car exceed expectations. Minus a few factory STi driveline items, the car incorporates every bolt-on available, and relies on the Dom 1.5 XT-R and E85 to stay competitive. From the engine to suspension the WRX reliably manages street and track duty.

The immediate limiting factor is fueling. The Dom 1.5 XT-R and E85 make the car a blast. At this time power output is nowhere near full potential. The limitations are being addressed.

Alright guys I pretty much got told I need to put my car in for this. Sooo a little about me I'm an E-5 in the army working on the structures of Aircraft. Pretty much I'm a body shop for helicopters, haha.

I bought my legacy a few months ago after I totaled my wrx. The accident was pretty rough and we all got out of the car alive! I have always been sold on Subaru's, but this really convinced me that I needed another one. I do all the work on the vehicle myself besides tuning. As soon as I bought the legacy I tore right into it and started modding it. I started with suspension, exterior and started moving towards the engine.

Just so you guys can see all the work I have put into this here is my official build thread.
http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show....php?t=2460329

My motor is currently getting built with all sorts of goodies! I am hoping for over 450 Whp and around 400 Wtq. It will be getting tuned on E-85 and should make it there pretty easily. Onto the mod list:

Sorry guys! As always seems to be the case with me in the winter I've been fighting a nasty bug since New Years.

Anyway we've got 28 incredible Subarus for our first ever Military Only Top Scoob so I'm thinking it was well worth the wait...even if someone didn't quite finish shaving their bay.

Voting to kick off momentarily and you are all now free to post more pictures, info, videos, or whatever of your car and or military service as long as you remain in the running.

Massive thanks to you all and best of luck!
