    You mean the "H" is a mistake added by some fkwit?

    In that case someone really should tell Louderisbetter150, long420 et al from floridaspl.com to stop wasting their money! (What's a 4-letter word for gullible or idiots?) Though that advice matches their street-use advice of it's "better to get more batteries than an alternator big enough to handle the load"!!!


    Luckily I'm in Vic - 15,600km away (9,700mi).

    Im on my way to Fla. at the end of the summer. I am hoping we can reignite or start the meetings, from what Ive read, not much activity has been going on for a while. I will be moving to the Naples area, and I do composite material fabrications as well as some electronics. I am not afraid of tearing down an interior and rebuild. I am hoping to set up a small home garage shop, as I have now, to work on projects.

    I'd like to get going with group workshops and social meets. Even if not interested in participating, at least lets get a dialog going !

    They are probably too broke to do anything! Or stalled with flatteries.
    I certainly hope some have picked up their act - especially when some of the FAQs and ref material seem so good.

    But to read stuff like putting batteries in engine bays (for extra capacity from heat), or that only big caps "keep" charge (or is it voltage or current they store?), and the usual that bigger batteries or more batteries is better than having a big enough alternator....

    Honestly, it puts audio and electrics back in the dark ages. (that's the pre-creation/B-Bang darkness.)

    On my visits to the area I noticed the large amounts of people pampering their cars, which I think its cool because it leads to them trying new things, so I may just put together some flyers and see what comes of it. Maybe a new generation of enthusiasts.

    Ever since John1701 dropped out of the scene, Florida meets stopped cold turkey. With me, I just hate going to meets when my install is not in the car. It bothers me to no end to have everyone else with a install and then mine is not even close. I plan on blitzing the install pretty soon, so I am hoping that by end of summer its just about done.

    As far as new generation, we will see. With iPads, Android Tabs, and the new systems with the Tegra 2 processor, the Car PC hobby is changing. Who knows where it will go!

    meets can be less than a hundred people!

    I used to go to meets of 3 or 4 people...its still cool. its all about getting people who do the same thing, from different points of view.

    I show up to some meets without my gear up to par, with my ride all dirty and in disarray. no biggie.

    I moved, unfortunately, to Maryland about a year ago but I do make trips down to Tampa every now and then. Been a while since I've been to a meet, and still havent been to one up here in MD yet.

    I'm still here in South Florida trolling the forum, have my same setup except I swapped out my mother board for a Jetway with and atom processor (best thing I ever did for CarPC).

    Althogh I'm eyeballing a new car and possibly and iPad setup (in your face Hijack you apple hater)

    I'd love to be part of any meet we can plan

    Peace

    Wow, just got a notification of a post in here... had to blow the dust off the thread to even read the post!

    We definitely need to do another meet here in the near future! It has been a long time!
