Nope! That was Tim's personal Beatmania The Final board so I imagine he took it back with him. I imagine The Final is pretty cheap these days if you want to lobby for Tilt to shell out the few hundred dollars to get it.

And yeah, in retrospect holding the event on the day of the mother loving 500 Festival parade backfired for us indyDDR nerds. Anyone who wanted to commute to the mall was shit out of luck unless they went balls early/late to the event and if you did make it you were greeted with a fancy $25 hit for event parking. No one cares but let me just tell you that my Memorial Day Saturday was pretty shitty and that I will forever hate automobile racing.

I really liked the shirts this year though!

I drove down to the mall from Noblesville at about noon and parked for free within walking distance of the mall. The traffic wasn't even as bad as a normal rush hour: quite a bit better, in fact.

If neither of the above apply, you are normal. Congratulations.

Did you come in to downtown east of Meridian St? Because horry shit if you came in through the west side of town you were not making it to the mall while the parade was prepping / underway. Where on Earth did you park for free in Downtown Indianapolis?

I found an area of free street parking (mostly vacant) about 2PM about 2 blocks uhhh... east maybe (?) of the mall just past Dunkin Donuts. But traffic getting there was horrendous. And right next to that people were selling parking spaces for $10. LOL

Came in via I-70 on the east side. Exited at Ohio street, took that to Alabama, and I drove straight into what is I think the Conseco garage on Maryland. The sign said $5 all day, but there were no guards, the machine wouldn't give tickets, and the gates were raised, so I assume it was supposed to be free. The garage was essentially deserted. That's about 4-5 blocks down Maryland from Circle Centre.

Actually, it's not that easy to find a kit. While it probably wouldn't cost more than $300-$500 for the kit, finding it is the biggest issue. I actually ordered mine off Yahoo Auctions Japan and had it shipped Stateside.
