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



I've spent a lot of time working on my DeLorean too (is it possible I know as much about these stupid little cars as the self proclaimed "gurus"...).

Since we're comparing DeLorean sizes in the schoolyard: my car draws about 62 amps maximum (2,000 RPM, everything on except the window motors):

I may have the only DeLorean in the world that could reliably use a stock ground system, which makes its added super efficient ground bus very ironic indeed.
