Re: [DML] Upgraded Front Suspension

I'm sold.  Bill clearly knows more than one of the best suspension designers in 
the world.  If only he had been at Lotus to offer seat-of-the-pants data and 
baseless certainty in engineering improvements we'd have a much better car.

The DeLorean is not an F-150.  Its suspension was designed to be simple and 
light, not to withstand the Duke boys jumping through railroad cars.

I don't know what Sean did to send Bill back over here, but it certainly has 
brought comedy back to the DML.

The car desperately needs one. Fat tires alone aren't enough to keep all that 
mass from wallowing around like a pregnant whale. Add missing rear sway bar to 
Lotus' many design failures (even my 1988 F-150 has a rear sway bar, for crying 
out loud).
