[DML] Saab master cylinder VS DeLorean.


It was not my intent to put the quality of your items
in to question.  As you know, I have purchased a
number of items from you and have always been

While it is clear the Lotus/DMC engineers wanted to
use off-the-shelf parts, they took this "standard"
master cylinder and changed something (the springs? 
the pistons?) to make it 63/37 instead of the 50/50
Saab was using.

A DeLorean is not a Saab, clearly the weight ratio is
different.  The brake calipers/rotors are different,
and the wheels are different.  It is unfair to say
that because this part is good for Saab, it is
therefore good for DeLorean.

I will agree, the Saab part "works"...  But is it
correct?  Without knowing why DeLorean used the 63/37
setup, I am left to blindly trust that the engineers
had a valid reason for modifying the MC.  Given the
option (and based on some of the feedback here the
past few days), I am inclined to try and stick with
the way Lotus/DMC engineered it.  They know (knew) a
heck of a lot more about automotive design than I do.

The one thing that is unclear to me, can we still get
the 63/37 master cylinders?  Maybe James or Warren can
answer than one..
