I enjoyed the event EVCCON in Cape Girardeau, Missouri September 2011.
First time I had to share ideas with many similar minded EV converters. There were about 25 electric cars mostly converted vehicles with one Tesla. Lots of action with many good speakers, venders, sharing with other EVers, preview of Revenge of the Electric Car and the EV drag, EV road races and a public EV Car Show and Parade. First class event. The Saturn ran weighed in at 2839 pounds ran a 20.2 quarter mile and completed the road course at 52.6 seconds.
