    Yes, that ring is P/N 106694, Air Induction Pipe Extension. Item 22 in this diagram.

    Where we're going we'll need NFTs

    Speaking of NFTs for the Alpha5 I'm reminded that at the Aug. 18 Alpha5 reveal party a fellow invitee brought up DeLorean NFTs to me. I asked whether he had a connection to the new company. He said...

    Additional to these positive comments I'm impressed with DMCH's commitment to reproducing formerly-NLA parts for the owner community.

    There's no factory recommendation for the rear height since it was non-adjustable, of course.

    Keep in mind that lowering the rear below stock ride height creates negative camber that's out of spec...
  13. [General] DMR told the public they'd be doing this

    Are they depicting a completely false story? Maybe. Or maybe maybe not exactly that or at least not with malicious intent.
