Re: [DML] Rear Calipers on Ebay

Good point Marc!

John is saying it is ok to buy the Saab M/C that is proportioned  
wrong for the Delorean but it is not OK to buy the Jaguar Calipers  
that are proportioned wrong for the Delorean.

I understand why the wrong M/C's were used but now the CORRECT ones  
are available so why would anyone want the wrong Saab M/C that  
effects braking badly in our Deloreans?

I believe I have the Saab unit in my car and when I hit the brakes  
hard if I am not going straight the ass end will spin around. I have  
already locked up my brakes and have had the rear end of my car start  
to spin around, luckily I wasn't moving that fast or I would have  
been sideways. If there was a car on the side of me I may have hit it.

Question is why would anybody want the Saab M/C when we know it is  
wrong, the correct M/C is now available, and we know the braking is  
severely effected with the Saab M/C?

This is when we have to stick to the stock specifications I guess.
