    Carb Demonstration at Next DCS

    Greetings to my fellow carbed DeLorean owners. Would anyone have any interest in offering to give a how-to carb a Delorean tech demonstration at the next DCS? I think that a lot of owners would have an interest in the carb option, especially if they could see the parts involved, whether in a box or on the car. If we could find a volunteer with a trashed K-Jet system, we could even do a real-time DCS carb conversion.

    If there is any interest in this idea I could pitch the same to Rich W and Tony for the 2018 show. Let me know either way!

    Thanks,

    Andrew

    Sounds good to me. Chad should have another delorean by the next DCS. I propose that he leave Kjet intact until then and we do a conversion at the show.

    I'm not looking to buy another DeLorean ever again. That said, Steve is probably right.

    I'd also like to have all the different configurations of carbs together:

    Andrew with Peugeot and Solex
    Chad with Peugeot and 2100
    Steve with Bill and 2100
    Rich with cobbled and Chinese
    Josh with K-Jet

    I'd like to know which setup is the best and compare them in acceleration.

    Dammit, Jim. I'm an undertaker, not a mechanic.
