Re: [DML] Re: Inadequate DeLorean Grounding Identified (Big Red Circle)

You have provided nothing to back up this statement (below).

We do not know WHY the capacitors were added, but anyone that understands how a capacitor works would also understand how a bigger ground wire would never replace a the need/function of a capacitor. 

"noise" problems and "ground" problems are commonly confused, but are not cured in the same way.  The discussion (for me) was never about what advantages/disadvantages/need there is for bigger (or additional) grounds, but your connecting these 2 unrelated subjects and again blaming the engineers for it.

Considering I have an EFI DeLorean, with LOTS of extra electrical demand over a stock DMC (because of the 1000W Stereo), this is a subject I have spent a lot of time working on, with the specific application of a DeLorean.

The nice people at Lotus/DMC stuck capacitors all over the car trying to quiet things down. They would have had better results with the 1981 equivalent of $50 of battery cable and copper connectors.
