Re: [DML] Front Ride Height Intentions - Documented Proof

And the mass of the engine in the VX220.  In a car like the Elise and the 
VX220, added weight is very noticeable.  And since that weight was in 
the rear - different rear springs.

As far as the DeLorean outhandling an Esprit - old wives tale.  Physics
doesn't allow the DeLorean to outhandle the Esprit because of the 
location and the size of the masses.  The Esprit has a lower polar moment
of inertia and a lower roll center.  Two critical values when it comes
to handling.
