[DML] Frame Flex?



A question for those of you who have done extensive
frame work..

I was speaking to a friend with an esprit.  We were
talking about the similarities between it and the
DeLorean.

He asked if the DeLoreans had the frame flex problem
near the shifter.  He explained that on many of the
Esprit cars, they develop cracks in the frame around
the shifter cut out because the weakness in the area
allows the frame to flex.

Lotus introduced a "fix" for this in the mid 90's in
the form of a thick plate that bolts around the
shifter cut out.  He said it turns out to be a
performance enhancement because it significantly
stiffens the frame of the car.

Anyone know about this?  Has anyone noticed cracks in
the frame around the shifter? Would a similar "fix" be
an improvement on the DeLorean?
