[DML] A couple of exciting new products available at DCS 06 in Pheasant Run

Many of you are familiar with the work my son and I did on VIN 6195,
some of which can even be termed "pioneering". The car was featured in
several articles in Gullwing magazine over the past few years and was
the first place winner in its category at Pigeon Forge. The mods
included HID projector headlamps, Brembo cross-drilled and slotted
front brakes, custom wheels and tires, unique custom fuel system mods
for enrichment under boost (the car had a BAE turbo), an electric
scavenge pump for the turbo, custom stereo installation, fully painted
and detailed engine with custom metallized airbox, and on and on...

We were always in search of improvements that would update the car and
make it more fun to drive. That's why we're now so pleased to bring
what we think are two very exciting new products, originally developed
for 6195, to the entire DeLorean community. 


The first product is a shock tower brace called "Enjoy the Ride".
Peter developed this product to improve the cornering and general
handling of the car. This is the only shock tower bar available for
DeLoreans, and to our knowledge is the only significant suspension
improvement other than the lowering kits that are available from
various sources. 

It works by tying the tops of the two front shock towers together,
stiffening the front end of the car. The effect is to limit the camber
change that occurs during hard cornering. That, in turn, reduces
under-steer, thereby giving the car a more controlled, precise, and
fun driveability in the turns. It's made from high strength,
lightweight aircraft quality aluminum alloy (6061-T6) and comes
polished for a great appearance. All necessary hardware is included,
along with clear instructions that make installation quick and easy.
Sooner or later, almost every performance car owner equips their
vehicle with some sort of strut tower brace. DeLorean owners are no
longer left out. Finally, we too can enjoy the benefits of a shock
tower brace!


The second product is called "Joe Cool". I developed this to address
the well-known and very annoying problem that happens when the two
engine cooling fans turn on at exactly the same time that the AC
compressor engages: the engine slows, the lights dim, and the
experience of driving a performance car is ruined. Joe Cool puts each
fan on a separate high capacity relay and staggers their start so that
the compressor engages followed shortly by first one fan turning on,
and then a moment later by the other fan turning on. This eliminates
the drag on the engine caused by too great a load being thrown on it
all at once.

Joe Cool also handles the fan fail light in an intelligent manner. It
has separate internal fuses for each fan circuit. If a defect in the
fans or their wiring results in either or both of the internal fuses
blowing, the fan fail light will be turned on. You will not have to
tape or paint over the word "fail" on your console anymore. Nor will
you have that light flashing in a meaningless and annoying fashion in
your peripheral vision as you drive. With Joe Cool, the "Fan Fail"
light actually means the fans have failed. (Imagine that!) 

Joe Cool is completely "plug and play". Just plug it in and go.

Reviews of both of these products can be seen in the latest issue of
Gullwing magazine, so if you're interested check it out. Both products
will come with a one-year warranty against defects in materials and

If you're interested in these products, we'll have a limited number of
each available for sale at Pheasant Run. The show is probably your
best opportunity to buy them because they will be "show priced" at
$150 for the shock tower bar, and $195 for the Joe Cool. (They may be
priced higher later on.) By buying at the show you'll also avoid
shipping and handling. 

Unfortunately, we're just not set up to accept checks or credit card
payments, so we'll only be able to accept cash payments at the show.
Please stop by to see these products or just to chat about DeLoreans.

See you next week at the show!

-Joe and Peter Kuchan
