RE: [DML] Front Strut Bar Question



Pete,

 

I agree with Tom that you should put it on and try it so we could here your
opinion. A good customer of mine put one on his car and was impressed enough
to have me order a second one for his other DeLorean while it was in for
service. Although I was skeptical at first, for the same reasons as you are,
on the initial road test it felt like the car had a crisper feel on initial
turn-in for a corner and perhaps a flatter stance  (hopefully not the
?placebo effect?:) although I would need more seat time to very this and any
other improvements. One negative is that it interferes with the trunk carpet
positioning unless you?re willing to drill holes in this currently
unavailable part. Perhaps my customer (also a DML?er) would want to comment
as well as he has both an early and a late VIN DMC with some what different
driving characteristics and both cars have the strut bar. My initial
impressions were positive.

Tom,

Reading through the responses on this list, I think at this point I have no
choice but to do what you suggest, bolt it on and see if I can feel any
difference. My engineering judgement tells me that what we are seeing is
what another member of this list suggested - a placebo effect. But just the
same, I agree with you. I have to bolt it on and see what happens.

The person whose judgement I respect the most is Rob Grady. Not really fair
of me to ask him to step into this, but just the same I'm quite curious
regarding his opinion. Rob - any thoughts on this that you'd be willing to
share? If not with the list, then with me off-line?

Pete

Peter:

I wholly respect your expertise here. I'd just suggest that since you
already have it, and it can be installed and replaced with the original
bolts so quickly, why not give it a try before you sell it. Just a
thought. As yu pointed out some people swear by it. Every engineer I
know loves a good exercise in applied science - just take it for a spin
since it's already in the garage.

Tom
