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

I am confident Lotus Engineering did the best they could with the
budget and time frame they were given. As bad as the budget was the
TIME was the real killer. It probably caused many of the compromises
and trips to parts bins so they would not have to engineer a part,
source it, Q/C it, etc. In 20/20 hindsight we can second-guess them to
death. The car is what it is and certain improvements and upgrades are
possible. Your rantings about the shortcomings of the Delorean do not
help. Offer POSITIVE comments and suggestions once in a while! If DMC
was not happy with the quality of the work from Lotus they would not
have paid them so at the time everyone agreed with the compromises and
signed off on them. Some of the problems are things they never worried
about not. I would guess they DID NOT try to design a car that would
last 20 years without any problems!!!!!!!!
