Default Top Scoob 033, We Don't Need No Sway Bars

It's time for Top Scoob to hit the trails, rock piles, and mud pits! from Old School, Hatch Patrol, and New Age, we're looking for only the most hardcore lifted Subarus out there. If your car isn't worried about getting a little dented or dirty then step off the road and enter Top Scoob 033, We Don't Need No Sway Bars!

Read the rules below, compose and post your entry below, and good luck as we begin the journey to find out which Scoob has truly crossed the Rubicon and conquered Gaul...damn getting my terminology messed up...but you know what I mean!


Here's everything you need to know to get you and your Subaru on the road to becoming the next Top Scoob.

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 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.

buh bye WRX :(


Greetings, NASIOC! I'll throw mine into the running as well!!

Normally I've been driving a pretty low, street modified WRX, which I've been changing around over the past few years but last fall I decided to switch things up a bit... partly in response to my frustration with potholes but also that I love heading off the beaten path. I'm an avid hiker and mountaineer so getting around places I'm not meant to go makes it all that much sweeter to own a lifted, trail slaying, battle ready WRX. My recent travels to Iceland and the chance to see countless beautiful off road vehicles nothing the likes of we have here in the States swayed me to consider this as a permanent setup and finish a more extreme lift next year.

Although I travel often, I live in Boston and get stopped almost everywhere I go with people asking questions about the car. Sometimes frustrating but endearing

Right now the car is essentially a 4EAT stage 2 WRX on its way to an E85 setup. I'm pretty content with the power delivery, which is admittedly hindered by having 60lb wheels at each corner. I wanted a setup that was drop-in / drop-out for whenever I decided to switch back to race car mode and Forester suspension has thus far fit the bill pretty well. It's also a lot better suited now for towing, since being low was not exactly conducive to having a trailer behind the car. The most interesting stuff that has gone into the build....

- SG Forester suspension for going over rocks, Kartboy endlinks to easily disconnect sways, Sumo trailing arm spacers to do things right
- In order to be super sexy, I wrapped 27.5x9.5 TSL Radials around Speedline 2118s in 15x7, with an additional +25 of H&R hubcentric spacing all around
- FHI 4 Pot front calipers and H6 rear brackets with Racing Brake slotted rotors in the middle
- Rally Innovations Ultimate light bar and skid plate for smacking into rocks and Hella 500/1000s for blinding drivers
- Stage 2 tuned with a straightpipe to sound hard and a quieter Prodrive/Greddy combo for the ladies
- 4EAT transmission with four badass gears to go forward and one to go backwards, although I don't use that one
- Simota Carbon Intake for +5 horsepower
- Stickers for +25 horsepower
- All sorts of other look-cool parts to break on the trail and be JDM, yo!

Anyway, on to some pics!

2005 Forester XT


I'd like to enter mine if possible.......

- 2005 Forester XT - 5-speed Manual (no low range, makes it interesting at 12,000+ elevation on a hill)
- Stage II with Cobb Downpipe, stock TD04 turbo for quicker spool
- 215/70 R16 BFGoodrich All Terrain KO Tires
- Black Powdercoated Steel Wheels
- Sumo Parts 2" Stainless Steel Lift with trailing arm spacers
- Rola Vortex Roof Basket for spare tire and Rocky Mounts Bike Rack
- Rally Innovations front Lightbar with 2 - 2500 lumen CREE LED Spot Lamps (more on the way)

The car is daily driven reliably with over 160,000 miles on the clock, and takes long road trips frequently. No modifications have spoiled the excitement, handling or comfort of this car. I still throw it around in the corners, and bash it off road. I love it.

See some video action of her on YouTube before the lift: http://www.youtube.com/user/bluefox4848

Here are a few of the most recent pictures from going over Black Bear Pass from HWY 550 that drops into Telluride, Colorado.......a couple weeks ago:

HA funny that I found this thread, just browsing pics of lifted GL's on google and saw a picture of my car. I don't really care if it's too late too enter, just wanna share my car with people that want to see something that they don't see every day.

I have a 6" SJR XT Strut lifted 2000 OBS.

190k on the 2.2
waiting for winter and money to do a EA D/R tranny swap

Things break a lot. It broke on the way to WCSS this year so thats why you didnt see me. I want to make it more reliable so I might lower it a tad, and go with a less intense wheel offset! thanks for looking! All I have are Iphone 3 pics, sorry!

the pooparu

used to look like this!
