Time to open the polls for the second round of Top Scoob!

After Round One we've narrowed the field down to six amazing machines, of which only the top three will move on to the final round to determine who has Nasioc's Top Scoob.

Your six are...

I tried to base my car after the V7 Sti bugeye as best I could with what money I have to spare.I always loved the Bugeye Sti,but since it never made it to the US,I had to get a close approximation...at least in looks. I dont have the cash for the motor transplants and all that jazz
I'm not a slammed car show junkie or supa dupa race car driver nor sponsored by 15 companies.I just wanted a clean(to me at least) daily driver.
Yes,I drive it to work everyday and its been a great car and after I drive it into submission,I'm sure I'll buy another Subaru.
So basically I just have a decent looking subaru imho and I hope I can get a few votes.I dont think I have all the parts and ultra leet jdm stuff to win,but a vote or two would be nice. Yes its not the fastest or none of that..but I've never cared about that..Just a nice,comfortable daily driver..

It all started when I was deployed to OMAN during Iraqi Freedom - My wife was sending me all my WRC VHS tapes to keep me entertained. It was towards the end of the last VHS tape I had watched that she tells me she wants to get rid of the S2000 and get something with AWD. She felt a little nervous with the S2K in the rain, and she wanted something a little more stable.

Of course, I had just been watching years worth of WRC videos, so I was all pumped up when she said she wanted AWD. Her exact words to me were “Sweetie, I want something as fast as the S2000, AWD, 4 doors, and it can’t cost more either.”

I was like, dang, she just described the WRX to a “T”. Her reply was that she thought it was ugly (this is about the time when the Bug Eyes were coming to the US). I said unless she wanted an Audi S4 for almost 20 grand more, the WRX was the only thing that fit her criteria. She agreed to test drive one with me when I got back from the war.

About 6 months later, I returned to the US and we got our test drive. She still thought it was ugly, but that was the farthest thing from her mind after the tach went north of 3,000rpm and she felt the turbo kick in for the first time. She was addicted to boost!

We put our order in with Huffines Subaru in Texas and waited patiently for months to get one of the last 2002 Aspen White 5sp MT’s. At that time, Huffines Subaru was affiliated with Cobb Tuning, who intern was the only US distributor of APS products. They gave us a test drive of an APS Club Spec equipped car and my wife was instantly hooked. It was the BOV. She loved the sound. She said no matter what, she wanted that sound.

So it began...

My inspiration for the car was deeply rooted in tarmac rallying (after watching years of WRC rallies while deployed). I wanted to build a daily-driven road going version of the Prodrive World Rally Championship WRC S8 rally car. A car that really captured the essence of the WRC car, without being a full up replica. Replicas have been done in the past but I wanted something that was more like a factory special edition. Something that had presence. Something that was subtle but so special you couldn’t put your finger on exactly what it was until you looked a little longer, and noticed the fine details of what helps identify this car with its WRC heritage.

It was to be uber clean, as if it started life as a Prodrive WRC Privateer entry, only in not such raw form. It was to be a finished vehicle, capable as a daily driver on real roads, but a monster when pushed in the mountains. It was to be well balanced, both visually and mechanically, and also in it’s capabilities. I wanted a car that would blur the lines in the twisties, but could also excel at the circuit, or at a show - the ultimate daily driver. I wanted a car that really represented what the WRC is all about - a global motorsport, one that just happens to be the closest thing that someone could emulate with their road going car, since the WRC is based on them.

I knew the parts I chose had to have a European flavor, and so my quest began searching the globe for parts to represent a whole host of countries. From APS (Australia), Sparco, Orciari and Lester AutoTuning (Italy), H&R (Germany), Revolutions Wheels and AP Racing (UK), Michelin Sport division (France), Rev-Lab (Canada), STi genuine parts (Japan) and Hotchkis, Ground-Control, and Gimmie Gears (USA), many countries were represented in the build up of this car.

All the modifications to this car were chosen with a methodical, calculated precision. The balance had to be just right, down to the colors. The devil is in the details.

This car was developed over time (about 4 years), all on my own dime. No sponsors, no gimmies, nada - Just some hard work and an extreme dedication to build my ultimate dream car.

The interior sports a full Sparco compliment of their finest threads. Material was ordered from Sparco Italy to complete the look. One of the highlights is the full padded Alcantara dash, a throw back to the flocked dashboards of the WRC cars, to help eliminate glare when blasting down the rally stages. On the passenger side, I had the SRS Airbag logo digitized and then CNC embroidered in the same exact location as stock to pull of a factory look. Nested within the dash at its center, you’ll find a trio of Defi’s BF series gauges in Amber Red, one of the first sets imported into the country. The controls are all about keeping the theme, so the steering wheel got the Alcantara treatment as well. First, the WRX wheel was tossed in favor of a genuine STi wheel, and then stitched up by none other than Stitchcraft Custom Interiors of Hunting Beach, Ca - the same folks who do work for Chip Foose. The detail on the wheel is amazing. I had them replicate the stitching on the STi wheel down to the thread. It took 20 times to get right, but the end result was breathtaking. Roudign out the controls, the navigation system was from Kenwood, same electronic sponsor to that of the WRC car. The door cards got the Sparco treatment as well. The tops were done in Alcantara to match the lines of the dash, and the inserts were done in Netspacer fabric to match the inserts on the Sparco Monza seats. The rear seats went under the knife as well. Fully encased in Sparco materials to match the front seats, the headrests were reshaped to that of their counterparts, for that little something special. To finish out the interior, I installed Sparco’s competition 3 inch harness, along with their newly redesigned harness bar custom made for the WRX.

On the exterior of the car, the highlight has to be the front end. I designed the front of this car to emulate the WRC car (not to replicate it). The Prodrive lip, along with the Lester AutoTuning fog light covers and fender vents give the car a clean look. The modified one piece bumper complete with Orciari WRC grille and WRC projector headlights help solidify the WRC look. Fine details like the leading edge of the hood being cut to match the lines of the grill opening lend to it’s credibility as a WRC emulation, as do the Gimmie Gears WRC hood vent, which was molded from a real WRC competition hood. I chose not to get a set of WRC carbon mirrors because when looking at the car from the front, the stock White mirrors draw your eyes closer to the outer edge of the car, giving it a much wider, menacing appearance. The roof got the Spec C vent treatment, and the rear decklid sports a true WRC style wing, that hangs off the back of the car as if it just came from Prodrive.

Underneath, the chassis got a complete overhaul. To get telepathic reactions we said goodbye to the original steering rack and installed a custom unit from Rev-Lab. It brought the ratio down to an amazing 12.5 to 1 - just slightly over 2 turns lock-to-lock. The factory suspension was tossed in favor of H&R coilovers, mated to custom Ground-Control caster/camber plates up front, and STi Group N top mounts out back. Lightweight aluminum control arms from the overseas STi model were fitted, as were lightweight 25mm hollow sway bars from Hotchkis Tuning. Also from Hotchkis Tuning came a set of fully adjustable lateral links surrounded by their custom endlinks as well. Completing the suspension is a 40mm Cusco rear strut tower brace nestled in the trunk.

To help make the car stop as good as it cornered, AP Racing calipers from the UK were installed up front, loaded with Ferodo DS2500 pads (DS3000 for circuit duty) clamping on AP Racing 330mm slotted rotors. Out back, a set of Subaru Aluminum 2 piston calipers (as found on the 22B) were fitted and loaded with a matching set of Ferodo pads, but not without being powdercoated to match the AP binders up front first. Slotted rotors from Disc Brake Australia were fitted to the rear. Goodrich SS lines were used all around, filled with ATE Super Blue brake fluid. Housing all that stopping power is a set of Revolution Millennium tarmac rally wheels straight from the UK, in a WRC spec size of 18x8. These wheels were the first set imported into the country, and subsequently used in Revolution Motorsport print ads all over Europe. Wrapped tightly around them and contributing to the cars’ amazing kung fu like grip and stopping power, is a set of true Michelin N43 (hard compound) tarmac slicks from France- the same tires used by competing WRC teams around the world.

Under the hood of this WRC emulation is where it all comes to life. An APS SR30/15 trim turbo was chosen due to it’s dual ball bearing design and unmatched OEM-like quality. Breathing through an APS DR/500 FMIC an APS BOV was also installed. Spent gasses make their way through an APS 3” Turboback exhaust after getting sucked in by the APS Cold Air Induction system filtrated by K&N. Cooling duties go to the Fluidyne aluminum radiator. Getting the power to the ground is an APS lightened flywheel and Cucso Sport clutch combo. The factory gears were replaced with a STi RA close ratio gear set that was cryogenically treated for strength and reliability. Stiffeners such as a compliment of STi Group N mounts were used to keep the drivetrain in check. Dress up items by Prova were used to spice things up a bit, and the factory manifold was powder coated like it’s STi offspring.

So after years of hard work and dedication, I present you my submission for Top Scoob, the WRC Tarmac Project - WRC Tarmac Emulating Model:

Not very good at this but i'll try. I bought my 03 WRX in June of 2003. I had an SVT Contour prior to having my WRX. The SVT was fully built with engine swap, nitrous, 19"s, BBk, etc. Loved the car but no matter how rare it was it was still an american car and couldnt hold up its value. I was originally going to get an SRT4, since i really wanted something with boost. My wife convinced me that i would have the same problem with the SRT4 that i had with the SVT. Decieded to go test drive a WRX. I originally test drove an 04 wagon and was instantly in love. While walking around the dealership thinking about what i wanted to do i see a few bugeyes still left in the lot. Well, i've had my beautifull bugeye for 4 years now and never thought about getting rid of it.

Car:

2006 Subaru Impreza STi
Crystal Gray Metallic w/ Gold Wheels
20,500 current miles
Always getting more mods.

Story:


I purchased my 2006 STi in August 06 at a Chrysler dealership. At the time I was driving a 04 Dodge Stratus R/T. I had no problems with that car other that it was a slow dog. I always had this "thing" for a STi but never thought I could get one brand new (They retail for $34k ish).

I was driving down ST Rd. 60 heading home. For some reason I felt I should take a small drive around town before I went home. To my surprise I find this STi sitting right out-front of the used car lot at Courtesy Chrysler. There it sat in all its glory, begging for somebody to come and get it, as if it was calling my name (lol). To make a long story short from here, I simply did a u-turn and went in to "inquire" about the car. Test drove it, fell in love with it. 2hrs later I was just about ready to drive home with it. Only one problem. They wanted $32k for it w/ 7k miles on it. I simply could not see paying near brand new price for a pre owned car. Much less, one that could have been spiritedly driven. I asked for them to lower the price down to $29k. For the price they wanted, I would have gone to Mastro Subaru and got it brand new. Keep in mind that I was already approved and good to go, which was exciting to begin with. I left the dealership dissapointed (it was Friday) since they wouldn’t budge.

On Saturday morning I get a call from the dealer telling me to come back in. They were willing to entertain the offer. I got the STi for $29k and they gave me $13k for my trade. It was a great deal. My downfall however was the knowledge of what the car had gone through from the previous owner. Apparently, the previous owner had done some mods on it and basically bitched it up. The dealer sold me a car w/o a cat on it. It had an HKS Downpipe with stock cat back and a welded straight pipe in replacement of the cat. 7 vacuum lines were missing (car was running 7psi) I had the slightest clue about the car's mechanics and I had to force-feed myself to learn this car quickly.

It took me a month to get the car running normal again. Today, the car is pushing 327whp/355wtq and it’s well taken cared of.

I'm part of a local car team here in
Tampa, TeamSSP. I show the car as much as I can. The long term goal for this car is to convert it into a WRC replica clone. Yes, it will take a lot of time and money to do this project, but it will be well worth it in the future.

Speed in a straight line or in the twisties? Why not have both? I bought my STi back in 2004 from Annapolis Subaru to do just this. This car serves as my daily driver, traveling car, track car, drag car, auto-x car, show car, and cruise car. Due to the numerous purposes of my car, I try to keep everything balanced between speed, spool, power, looks, and handling. Cars have always been a passion of mine so modding comes easily justifiable. Here is my car in it's present state and I'll let the pics and mod list do the rest of the talking!

Paulie gets my vote. White + gold always trumps carbon fiber and body kits.

It was a tough decision but BDR's got my vote. In my opinion Paulie's just seems too much like a race car to me, not that I wouldn't take it in a heart beat, it's just BDR's is sick!

And he drives the piss out of the car like a race car also. But you could eat off any part of that car on any given day. Maybe because I have known paulie for awhile and have seen this build first hand and we use to dig through boxes every time he would get a new shipment in my vote goes to a very good friend.
