Default Vote in Top Scoob 026, RACE CARS ONLY! TARMAC !!

Top Scoob is looking for the ultimate Tarmac Race Car.

To be eligible for this round your car must be a Proper Race Car. Time attack, Touring Cars, and Grand Touring GT cars only please. Drivers or Teams can enter their respective machines. If you have a question about the eligibility of your car please just ask me!

Racing is tough business. I remember a hardcore bracket racer once telling me that a great season for him was breaking even. Most racers I'm sure have heard a variation of the joke about how to make a small fortune in motor racing...by starting with a large one.

With that in mind I'm allowing a two year bubble for cars that still have some fight left in them but are currently in recovery.

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***8230;

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 free to add more pictures with new post. 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.

  • 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.
*For this round I'm also asking that you post information about the series your car competes in and details/results of at least ONE race weekend. Videos would also be great!

So if you think your car has what it takes enter right here and good luck!

Alright, I purchased my 2006 WRX in August of 2006 with thoughts of it being my daily driver. I wanted an STi but it just wasn't feasible at the time. From day one I had started modding the car, first started with the normal exhaust and intake which had been swapped over from my previously modified 2005 4EAT WRX. So here it is today. Trailer queen non streetable track car. I've put every time into making this car where I want it and I am not sure if it will ever get there haha.

After a couple turbo upgrades: 18g, Dominator 3 and lots of beating the living hell out of it the stock engine finally got tired and fell asleep as well as a couple stock 5spds. This is when the larger modifications started to come into play. A Cosworth longblock was purchased along with the APS TSR70 turbo kit and other needed bolt ons. I was power hungry, but who isn't. After I did all this I started getting sick of the car and sold it to a local friend. Then bought it back because of regret aaand then sold it again and bought it back. After a few months of giving the guy I sold it to hell. I finally decided I would keep the car seeing how I owned it there was really no good reason to sell it.

After a couple more years I had the car featured in Modified magazine, not only a feature but cover and a cheesy one at that. Not sure how it made cover but I couldnt be happier

After purchasing my 2008 STi dumping some money into it then making my WRX into a full time race car it was finally time to call it quits as a super fast, caged, fun street car. I'm not too good at telling stories about it but here is my 2006 WRX.

The car is raced in a local series here at Miller Motorsports Park called Lap Battle. I am still learning the car as I have built it beyond my ability to drive it, it scares me but it's still really fun and has been decently reliable and does well at the race track

I'm not too good at telling stories about it but here is my 2006 WRX.

Well I think we've made the masses wait long enough to start voting!

12 proper race cars, okay, 11 and one 1 crazy Canadian, covering everything from club racing to hill climbs, GC to GR, almost sane to completely mental.

Turn in Concepts and mpj_becks (GST Motorsports) still need to flush out their entries please

Also since we're not at our usual 25 cars we're going to do only two rounds, the first to pick the Top Three, then the Top Scoob Finals as always.

I'll open the polls at 1:00pm PST today

Thanks to all our entrants and Good Luck!
