EDIT: Thanks to those interested, we have currently filled our immediate need for new crew members. Ziptie Rally Team is looking to bring on new crew members for 2010. We have an early season situation where we are looking to be short on service crew for the Sno*drift pro-rally as well as 100 Acre Woods (and potentially later in the season for other events). New crew would act as substitutes when members of our normal crew cannot attend a race. Currently ZRT is comprised primarily of myself as driver, Dave (scuba_steve) as co-driver, and the following crew: Dan (boomer) (Crew Chief when present), Dan (dmoo), Matt (Chux), Sheen (idget), and Brian (bielke55). For 2010 we will be operating an Open class Subaru WRX STI under #171. What to expect: We are a grassroots level team and with our budget paying crew is not possible. Specifics of each race's financial situation are usually explored via hilarious 200 email exchanges several weeks in advance. Races are typically run Friday and Saturday. This means we will leave on a Wednesday or Thursday and return Sunday or Monday depending on distance. There will be a lot of downtime. The car returns to the service pits on intervals spaced over several hours and is usually in the pits for less than 1 hour. A typical service will be something like: pull wheels, inspect brakes, re-torque suspension bolts, inspect fluids, inspect or change tires, clean windows. This is the "ideal" situation for the car. Often times things are "not ideal" and more in-depth repairs will be required such as swapping radiators, turbos, struts, control arms, headlights. Familiarity with Subarus is preferred. A crew doesn't need to be a complete expert on the car but should be able to remove a strut without instruction or pull a brake rotor. On the fly improvisation skills are also important - when you only have 30 minutes to fix the car and you don't necessarily have the right replacement part or tool to do it, you have to get creative. Our current crew are masters at this and we don't run under the name of Ziptie Rally for nothing! Crew must also be good at working with others and doing their specific task under the Crew Chief's directions. Crew are also recommended to be versed in passing gas, paying more attention to what's for lunch than when the car is due into service, drinking and general lulz (for example, blowing up gas grills, getting kicked out of bars, taking over factory subaru's parking spots at the hotel, and so on).
