[DML] Re: My Suspension is better than Bill's



I'm glad you decided to actually see for yourself what Ed's brackets are all about in real world use, rather than merely sitting in your easy chair, gazing at the ceiling, hypothesizing in your mind alone whether they are any good.

I feel sorry for people who argue against Ed's brackets on theory alone because they have no idea how much better their driving experience could be -- a rather pitiable lot.

You are going to discover that DeLorean dogma runs deep. Owners hang on to entrenched ideas like they are dangling off a cliff, and these tired old notions are the only lifeline keeping them from falling into an unknown abyss. If only those people could realize that they are in fact already stuck at the bottom, and the only thing keeping them there is stubborn refusal to take advantage of improvements like Ed's brackets. 

You now are among enlightened owners who have soared out of that abyss. You sit atop a pinnacle, clearly seeing what hidebound owners remain abjectly blind to. The temptation to encourage them save themselves is going to be strong, but don't be surprised if your words fall on deaf ears (or on ears that have hands clasped tightly against them to keep new ideas out). The sad reality is that some of these owners are going to remain mired in motoring misery their entire life. They are like dinosaurs stuck in a tar pit.

Very sad indeed.
