A calpod switch disables assist and regen on manual transmission HCHI and InsightI. So one can accelerate without using power from the hybrid battery. Basically an on/off toggle wired to the clutch interlock switch. When switched on the car thinks the clutch is being pressed in and disables hybrid functionality. Apparently it only works on certain model years. Named after someone's user name on insightcentral and I believe they came up with the idea. I find it really useful and it was really simple to do.
