Subject: ETDOC meet

Hey Group-

Time is drawing near to the ETDOC meet on March 9-10.  If you are planning on attending, please contact Park Vista resort for accomodations. - tell them you are with the ETDOC for the special rate of $82.  It is a very nice hotel with secure parking and an indoor pool.

Early afternoon (1pm-4) on March 9, I have set up for dyno tests if anyone is interested. This will give the hp at the wheels for your delorean to see how it compares to others. If interested- please let me know. I have to notify the shop and set up the appts.  They only have the time to perform about 5-6 dynos- so please let me know early so that you can get in line.  The cost is $45, normally $50.

Sunday morning is the time for the run on the dragon at Deal's Gap.  I found a website with some comments about the road-  This will give you an idea of what kind of road this is.

A representative from the hotel called me and told me the rooms are almost fully booked. If you call to make a reservation and they tell you the rooms are sold out, please email or call me. I will make arrangements for the 2nd hotel accomodation.

We cannot wait to see everyone again.  If anyone has any questions, please do not hesitate to ask. 

See you soon!

Subject: Re: Coils

Some ignition coils do not require the ballast resistor, it is made 
with circuitry so that not only does it not require one it won't work 
if there is one in the circuit. They are usually clearly marked not to 
use a ballast resistor. The ones that require a ballast resistor 
usually aren't marked about it at all. If you are going to change the 
type of coil you must be sure it is compatable with the circuit you 
are placing it in. Way back Mallory had a high performance coil that 
was oddly shaped. Not only did it require a ballast resistor it also 
required an additional ballast resistor that was included with it. Be 
careful the type of coil you substitute. The Delorean has a 
solid-state ignition and could over-saturate a coil that wasn't 
designed to be used in such circuitry. You are always most safe using 
recommended parts, when you start experimenting you do so at your own 
risk. Using a coil that wasn't intended for the Delorean could damage 
the ECU module.
