Gerald,

Is 12E also called "County Line RD"? I was never able to get mapquest onto your house and noticed that they MAY be calling it that. By following the directions you provided, it looks on detailed map like 12E may very well be the county line.
Yes, 1200E is the same as (County Line Rd.).

Correct. Just placed that address correction on my signature to clear up any confusion.
Thanks

There are cheaper alternatives on amazon for the clips. I don't have the link right now. Will post later.
I found the 915303 clips on Amazon a lot less than G1, and was thinking of ordering 5 sets (10 per set @~$1.85ea vs about $3.20ea from G1) which could cover my blue Insight (found 6 of the 7 in my stock), maybe my gray Insight, and then maybe 2 more Insights (3 if I delay my gray one). Are there 2 folks attending that will want clip sets?

Then G1 parts has the best deal I could find on the other clips (91504, 91505 and 91511). If there is interest, I would be willing to order qty 7 of each (1 for my blue Insight, 2 for my gray one, and 2 X 2 for 2 more Insights (3 if I delay my gray one). Again, I need a commitment of 2 folks attending that want full sets.

Estimated cost for full sets with ship (and WI tax) is about $65 per car.

Let me know if there is interest in the next day (or so). Otherwise, I will just order for myself...

I've got a manual transmission that I'd love to crack open and get fixed. I had someone do the syncro-mod to it a while back, but I don't think it was done right.


We had done this as an event at Mike D's a couple of years ago, and it was a success. But it took Scott away from the meet for many hours. He is truly a patient, knowledgeable, and effective instructor.



So Scott is one great source, but he may already be too engaged in other presentations/clinics/and events. (The schedule of events is being finalized right now.) Scott does offer mail in service for the trans rebuild from California.



Another one is Marty. He is interested in offering this service to folks. He has done many of these over the past ten years he has been a mechanic. His email is [email protected] Please contact him for the particulars.



Don't forget the parts orders! (Input Shaft Bearing? Gear Set? etc)

I was asked to post a quick explanation of the VR setup. What is it, what kind of content is there, etc?

The setup will be using an HTC Vive (here's a quick orientation/promo video) and a high-end desktop computer to power it. The Vive uses IR lasers to accurately track your position in 3D space. It's very accurate and very low-latency. I guarantee you will be impressed

What can you do with it? Here are some examples to give you an idea:
You can insert yourself into the Star Wars universe
You can experience what it's like to climb Mount Everest
You can try your best not to crap your pants while you fight waves of zombies
You can walk around in 3D versions of real and beautiful places

And so much more. Thankfully a lot of the good stuff tends to be shorter experiences, which will fit well with the planned 30-45 minute timeslots. But you'll get to pick what you want to experience

We have something similar to this scheduled. Your setup could be the example. Which charger/discharger do you have. Is the harness installed yet?
