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



Hate to say this but according to SSI,he (JZD)was more interested in 
the glitzy items,than the actual mechanics of the new car.ie: the 
gullwing doors and their workings,the Finish on the SS,the layout of 
the interior,the overall looks of the car,Even the simple things like 
the graphics of the instrument panel were his cup of tea..of course 
he had the final say on everything but in the time era of getting the 
factory setup and the car engineered,and the selling of the 
dealerships,and the funding for the company and the promotions and 
the "other  enterprises" and everything else those goes with starting 
up a Huge start-up company,he just plain did not have the time to sit 
down and check the engineering..he was totally dependent on Lotus 
doing it right and having his team of people assigned for that 
purpose, be the watchdog over Lotus,which in turn reported up the 
chain of command,which in turn reported to JZD on the progress.That 
is just how big business works!
What really amazes me is that a Frame/shell/and SS panels could even 
be engineered in that short of a span,and fit together so nicely, and 
had he used a SS frame as intended he would have had a TRUE 20+ year 
lifespan car.
