[DML] Re: On the autobahn

First, lets say its more fun to drive a DeLorean 125 mph on the autobahn
then to drive 65 mph on highway :-))

I bought my DeLorean in 1996 with the front springs simple cut and lowered
to the maximum. On the autobahn at high speed the car jumped like a young
dog, but in 2006 I changed to Eibach shocks/springs and changed all
bushinges on front and rear suspension and since that day I have a new car.
My DeLorean drives as well as Lotus has developed it, no more rattle and
shaking on streets and no more BANG! at pottholes. Pictures:
http://www.steinerklaus.de/dmc/fahrwerk/index.htm  One month ago I put in a
new steering rack from DMCH and now my car drives like on rails!

I have the same expierience as Elvis, 200 kilometers/hour (=125 mph) high
speed on flat road, a little bit downhill or wind from the back is 220 km/h
(=140 mph)high speed. Average speed on autobahn-trips (less traffic...)is
160km/h (100 mph), fuel is 23.5 miles/gal. (10 liters/100 km)

Here in Germany its the same as in the States, when I'm parking my DeLorean
or pullig over for fuel or icecream (!) a crowd of people meet around the
car. When they ask that well known question "Where ist the flux capacitor" ?
I only point to the rear inside of the car and say: look over there!
