    Yea, most airfields do, but this isn't an airfield, it's a retired airstrip. It hasn't seen an airplane since WWII.

    The Boca Raton Airport next door has really nice hangers and stuff, but that is fenced off and I doubt we can get in there. Although, if we get really organized and set something up, we might be able to rent it out for a day, but that would probably be pretty expensive. I know there's an annual thing where they fly in old WWII airplanes, and let people come in, walk around, and look at them, but they charge people for that.

    I don't think there are many places that are free or low cost, large enough to fit a lot of cars, and have covered air conditioned buildings available. Generally you will probably find something that's 2 out of 3.

    We are currently in talks with a company who specializes in ECU flashes for Hyundai cars. Our first project would be to develop a few custom maps that are optimized for our Florida climate and elevation. We have been very successful with this sort of tuning on the Audi/VW platform and are looking to expand to the Genesis market.

    The other things that we would like to do once we have a few levels of performance maps made for the stock configuration is start to develop actual parts. some ideas we have thrown around is exhaust, hard pipe kit, larger turbo kit, and of course a larger intercooler kit. The stock intercooler is WAY small, so that would probably be our first physical part that we would develop.

    The other car we are really interested in is the new Volvo C30. So, if anyone out there in internet land has either a Genesis or a C30, and lives in FL, and would like to help with development, please let me know.

    Well, I've been super super busy and decided to check out when / where the next meetup would be. I actually go to FAU so Boca is pretty close to me. Haha, meetup would be great if my car ever gets out of the shop at the sealership.

    OK, so I know John is going to laugh when he sees me posting, because he makes sure to give me crap about not coming to meets more than twice a year, so without making up excuses, I will just take it on the chin.

    However, since my current setup has not changed since 2006 (front end, etc) I think it's time to upgrade, as iGuidance 3.0 is missing 90% of the roads around here, and CDRSkull is not making skins anymore (yes, that's how old my setup is). I am looking at RideRunner and other John (JohnWPB's skin) with iGuidance 4.0, etc. It just seems to have everything I need.

    The reason I am posting in the Tampa section is to see if anyone local is running something similar to this that I can see in use before I go through the hassle of upgrading. There is no turning back. RoadRunner doesn't exist anymore, Freedom skin doesn't exist, etc.

    Thats funny xmadcowx. I've been out-of-touch since about that era as well and it sounds like you are describing what I remember of current front-end technology.

    I moved from WI to Parrish, FL two years ago and am getting interested in this hobby again. Locals don't hesitate to contact me directly for any fab advice.

    Looking forward to a meet here.

    Change your profile, it still says WI. I wonder what happened though, we havent had meets in a while. I havent heard anyhting from John1701, so is he even still into the Car PC thing? I think JohnWPB is too busy trying to build his car before he can install his Car PC. Me, I refuse to go to a meet with no system. I want my setup to be flawless and actually work, not have you guys look at what might go here and there and what I hope it will be able to do.

    I am curious to hear what happened to everyone else, like Kimota, LoK, thatslife, and anyone else.

    I am still around, but as you said have been preoccupied working on my Fiero.

    I spoke to John1701 a couple weeks back, he said that he has decided to take a break from the CarPC stuff for a while.
