Kent Bakke brought in a very slick MetalNickleHydride battery pack, bout the size of 10 D-cells stacked in two rows. A special assembly for the hobby trade. It was a 12 v stack, and only weighed 3 lbs. 9 amp/hours.
Tracy Carroll of FlexCar stopped by to drop off the special $50. coupons for EV owners to use FlexCar. Any one interested in joining and taking advantage of this can drop me a line, and arrange to pick up the coupon.
Most of the meeting was taken up discussing various design considerations on the UW EV project with all the members of the team which came. It was great. Lots of give and take.
Father Time will be going down to Longview Wa. on the 22nd, to a Hot Rod Show.. Any one interested in going down with him, give Don Crabtree a call. They will be showing that blue 5/8 size track racing car.
One Idea came up round the February meeting. Meeting at the UW to see the car project. More on this later.
Terry Parkhurst, our resident freelance Auto Writer, is going to have possession of a NEW 2005 Ford Escape SUV Hybrid. This Sunday, ( 1/16/2005) if any one is interested, we could set up a meeting time-and-place for us all to check it out, and take a ride. Get back to me on this, and I will set it UP with Terry.
That is it for now... Unless otherwise, the Feb 8th meeting will be at the same time, same place...
