Re: [DML] Check my gizintas..

Hey Marc, that's great news!!! Any chance of some graphs?

As you know I've done a bit of tuning over here and I'm very sceptical 
about hp figures generally. What counts are figures at the wheels, and 
200hp at the wheels on a DeLorean is plenty quick. I've been more 
involved lately with the Alpine community over here and that's a fast 
car (with the same transmission, weight and layout as the DeLorean) and 
rated at 200 hp at the flywheel. What's more a rolling road is measurng 
accelleration of its rollers as a function of speed to measure the 
power, so your car with higher ratios will accellerate faster than a 
stock tranmission DeLorean with 200rwhp

Coincidentally I found myself re-reading this article on my favourite 
website for cutting through the bulls**t. I think it'll amuse you too 
and make you feel better!

One thing I do know is the Alpine guys tend to account for 60hp loss in 
a stock tranmission, rather than a percentage, and a unit loss rather 
than a percentage loss makes sense to me - instinct here and no real 
basis in fact!

Anyway, enjoy your car and all that power - Dan and I did (despite the 
grumbling about the gearshift :-) We've got the 360hp Alpine GTA coming 
back in this week, and I'm looking at buying a Nissan Skyline as well as 
building my 3 litre turbo for the DeLorean. If only Renault would get a 
move on and get me those pistons.....
