Re: [DML] Re: Delorean drag test with A Mom-mobile....



The car behind you would have rear-ended you if it had accelerated more
quickly.

Also, I believe that you once theorized that #5939's engine, not original
to the car, probably has different camshafts than a DeLorean's PRV. You
left that out of your list of modifications below. ;-)

Happy New Year,
