Default Congratulations Carl & Ziptie Rally Team, Nasioc's Top Scoob 026 DIRT !!

My name is Carl Siegler. I've been racing Subaru's for 3 seasons in the Rally America Central Regional Championship. A group of local Subaru enthusiasts make up my team, Ziptie Rally (www.ziptierally.com http://www.facebook.com/ziptie.rally). My codriver is Dave Goodman. My first car was a 2004 STI that was first run as an Open Light car for one season and then converted up to Open class for the following two seasons.

This year at RallyMN I crashed the 2004 hard at 90mph and decided to build a new chassis. A 1996 Impreza coupe was purchased immediately after getting home from the rally. Over the next 5 months the team and I put over 1000 hours into building it from the ground up. We did a lot of work including fully stitch welding the chassis, building a custom wiring harness, powder coating the entire shell and cage, and fabricating a lot of unique parts.

I've only run LSPR so far in this car (DNF'd after the DBW system failed) so not many action shots yet.

my car started out looking like this


after stripping the old race car


we began work on the new one

(we don't have a shop or a fancy garage to work out of. This is all straight up diy, home built blood, sweat, and tears)

we also built the cage in my garage (last time I paid a shop to do it)




then we took it to one of my crew's dad's shop for powder coating




I did a full on custom wiring harness. If you've ever worked on a bulkhead harness you can see how little wiring this car has


AN fuel lines


TSS FAB rear subframe and links

Let's hope so! (2011 was a pretty bad season for our team between crashing and blowing the motor and having to build this new car up)

70+ entry list for sno*drift, should be pretty awesome

Also, thanks to Whiteout Rally and Aaron for entering their rally cars - hope to see you guys sometime this season!

Thank you Carl, Julian and I at Whiteout Rally, really enjoyed the excitement with the Top scoob on dirt contest. we are very happy to say congrats to you and your team at Ziptie Rally. It was a very close running the whole way.

we are just happy we made the final! Hopefully we will see you on the dirt sometime this 2012 season. Julian and I have a lot of work to do to earn the coefficients for Open call in Rally America.
