[DML] Re: Lotus engineering was WANTED: Angle Drive



BUT that was the whole problem...they were using/engineering parts 
for a mid-engined car,and using/trying to engineer them for a REAR 
engined car..the result was having to use BIGGER tires in the rear to 
compensate!! Since Lotus could NOT engineer out the bad effects using 
the engineering from the Esprit.If it was done correct as with what 
Porsche did with their Porsche rear engined cars,it would not have 
needed bigger tires in the rear to compensate for the ability of the 
back of the Delorean to want to become the front in any kind of 
curve/turn.Also what I meant was the fact that you had to use the 
crappy U shims that FALL OUT and then causes poor rear alighment,and 
then causes  the bolt to bend/snap/seize in place(as they engineered 
the wrong type of bolt) that could cause a catastrophic accident,if 
it were to snap.
