I proposed this a few months ago and have gotten no response from anyone. Steven had mentioned he would be willing to go this but the numbers had to be there (about 15 installs) for it to be worth the expense.

Cost has been around $475-$500 depending on how many people signed up. The more installs, the lower the price.

One of the problems is I think a lot of people might have cruises on their cars.

Steven did around 25 installs last year, which may have exhausted the demand for this event, or more folks are opting for the factory cruise control on the newer cars.

It's not that difficult to install an Area 451 CC. It looks overwhelming at first glance, but if you just follow the directions and go step by step, it's very easily doable.

I'd gladly pay a bit more to have it installed by someone who knows what they are doing.

The MDC cruise is easy to install as well and doesn't take very long. Yes it could be done at a rally if you had the right tools.

Maybe if there are not enough installs to justify Steven attending, we might have someone who would care to do a seminar on installing and we can do a group project...
