You could put lithium in today.
Stop on by and I'll sell you the parts.
Would still cost $3000-$5000, even using used lithium cells.
So lithium will never be as cheap as this used pack.
Nimh itself is not a risk.
As I said at the event, too often I come back from the event with 99% car photos and 1% people photos.
In between all the other responsibilities, I worked hard to get more people photos this time. And even though they aren't professional shots, looking at the results, the effort was worth it.
InsightFest 2019 was a blast.
New friends. Old friends. So much great info. Some cool new experiences.
Here is a quick link to a whole bunch of my photos from the weekend.
** IMPORTANT CHANGE OF VENUE FOR SATURDAY DINNER *
Saturday Dinner WILL NOT be at O'Charley's Restaurant
DO NOT GO TO O'Charley's
The new location is
La Fogata Grill - Pickerington
1849 Winderly Lane
Pickerington, OH 43147
It is right next to the official hotel, Best Western Executive Suites...
I've added a few more things I am bringing but haven't priced all of it as of yet
some coil packs (used?)
red seat covers that are kind of knock-off wet okole versions $55
New in bag cargo net $45
For now, it seems fair to give the paid attendees onsite at the event a shot at things.
I will follow up with folks when I get back home on Tuesday.
If you have questions feel free to contact me directly at 608-729-4082
I talked to the hybrid community for years that this fee would be coming and I urged folks to come forward to organize and preemptively oppose this.
All I heard in response was crickets.
So I do not have much empathy for after-the-fact hand wringing.
Well guys I just arrived in Columbus and am already working on lots of details for the show.
If everyone who registered shows up we are going to really have a cool showing at King Collision!
September 2, 2019
InsightFest 2019 is only a few days away.
Some of you are already on your way, others of you are so close by you won't get ready until Friday morning.
Right now we have 60 registered attendees from 22 states plus the UK! 12 of our fine folks will be representing...
Some last-minute tweaking to schedule to give people more time to go grab their lunch on Friday and get back in time to hear Scott's session. Also added reminder about signing up for car mini-inspections.
This is the version of the schedule that is getting printed for attendees.
The rental company quoted $35-$45 per table and $10 per chair to rent them, plus a delivery fee.
I assumed people did not want to add that amount to their registration just for their own table delivered to the event.
I would suggest bringing your own table from home or buying one locally...
