TBT In 2009 Gordon Ting ask us if we could build a Scion Rally car for him to be displayed at SEMA. The next year this “show” rally car would end up starting a Rally America program for 2010 as well as a second rally car to be build but this time a full functioning race car. Keep in mind, other than doing some fab work on other people’s rally cars my only on-hands experience with stage rally was sitting on the couch watching WRC. I’ve always had an appreciation for rally and on top of that it presented the most technology that related to what I was into, high horsepower four cylinders. Our first year, had us on a very tight schedule but regardless we ended up with the 2010 two-wheel drive champion, Chris Duplessis, piloting the Scion Xd into victory lane at the season finals at the New England Forest Rally. Having both Chris and his brother, Forest, helping us that year was a great learning experience with ended in podium finishes that year, this opened up the doors to yet another Scion racecar build the next year. As much as I can say the builds were a fun experience I would have to say that the whole stage rally experience was something I will always remember from the awesome people I got to work with to friendly staff, it was just something every racecar builder needs to experience. If there is one thing I can always remember it’s the hustle of having only 20-to 45 minutes to repair everything that hasn’t held up after a few stages of abuse. From swapping out transmissions, suspension components and quick rigs just to get through to the next day were things you don’t enjoy going through at the time but can now look back at how fun it was to get on the podium knowing what we had to do to get a victory. I could tell you a million stories of “I can’t believe we won and that blah blah blah rig held up!” I’ll keep it short and go to one story from Michigan’s Sno Drift Rally. At the time Andre Comrie Picard, AKA ACP, was piloting the freshly built Scion and this time it was in turbo trim. (Continued in comments) Tags: Daigo Saito design craft fab designcraft
