Great to see you here Mike! We met at the Tour De Sol 2006 in Saratoga Springs New York. Hopefully you will be at Hybridfest this year?

Wow, thanks for the many welcomes.

Unfortunately the Insight is mostly plastic and aluminum, so magnets don't help much. My test adhesion piece will need to cure for several days before I put it to the wind tunnel test.(My nephew has access to the Worcester Polytech wind tunnel). I also bought some 3M acrylic adhesive foam tape, that is supposed to bond metal to metal as well as rivets, so that will be my back up plan. 5 yards for $48, it better be good.

I remember meeting you and Wayne Gerdes there for the first time.
I hope to get out to Hybridfest again this year, and will drive out if possible.
I had a good time last year.
Mike

Wind tunnel! That's amazing! WPI is a pretty good school, at that. I visited a few years ago in my own college search.

Congrats on having access to a wind tunnel. I suspect a sizeable chunk of the membership is green with envy. (Count me as one.)

I have one of Mike's MIMA kits in my Insight right now, and I can tell you, it is an unbelievable piece of equipment. Mike, you are a genius!

Hi Eric - welcome.

Feel free to post up a thread about HF/08. Dan K, Ben (SVOboy) and I have been talking about going to the event (carpooling).
