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

I would like to chime in here as I was one of the testers for both of 
these products.  My DeLorean is driven daily, in all kinds 
conditions, so it makes a good test vehicle for any new product.

I've been running both of Joe's and Peter's products now for hundreds 
(thousands?) of miles and I couldn't be happier.  For anyone who 
hasn't yet met Joe, he gives you the same kind of confidence in his 
products that Toby does.  These are guys who really know their stuff 
and build quality, tested equipment.

Both items are ridiculously easy to install and you notice an 
immediate difference.  Most are probably familiar with the "floating" 
feeling the DeLorean gives in the front end when you push it to the 
limit.  The shock tower makes a big difference in alleviating that.

The Fan Controller I really like because it staggers the cycling on 
of the A/C compressor, and each fan, just like the Fanzilla used to.  
It also restores the function of the fan fail light.  During testing, 
I removed an internal fuse to simulate a fan failure and it correctly 
lit my fan fail light.  This was the first time I'd seen it light up 
since I've owned the car!  I should also note that the unit is 
compatible with LEDs, as well as regular bulbs (mine are all LEDs in 
my console).

Cool stuff!  Both have made my car much more of a pleasure to drive.

If anyone has any questions about the install or real-world use, look 
me up at Pheasant Run and I'd be happy to chat about them.
