    Everything there is to know about my Mirage can be found here: http://drivefast.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=2932

    And, I'm not asking for ideas in this thread. Just letting you know what I did. And if it becomes a problem, I'll let you know that, too.


    Simplify and add lightness.

    Plus there's that triangle shaped mounting bracket on the firewall just for the flux capacitor, so no fabrication is needed.

    I found this at O'Reilly Auto Parts: EB Enterprises - Flux Capacitor

    Unfortunately, it and it's upgrade kit are not available.

    There is no such thing as a flux capacitor.

    And for those of you that must know, I see Bob Gale at least once every two years. He has reassured me and others that there will not be Back to the Future IV as long as he is alive.

    Doc Brown is a make believe character played by Chris Lloyd. Klingons aren't real either.

    Chris expressed that he would be interested in doing another BTTF, but he has no control over whether or not another film gets created. That is up to Bob Gale and Robert Zemeckis. Both of them are on the same page and never want to see another BTTF film created. As long as both of them are alive, there will never be a BTTF IV. Lets hope at least one of them lives forever.

    Of course, once they are both passed, you can be assured that Universal will rape the franchise for every last cent they can squeeze out of it.

    But I do think I remember Bob Gale saying something about a Broadway version of BTTF. I don't keep up with all the BTTF stuff but I suppose it is something you could look into.

    I think you’re missing the point. Everyone knows that adding stickers increases horsepower and a secondary flux capacitor could give you at LEAST another 100HP.

    A friend of mine had a Delorean with a fake flux capacitor along with a bunch of garbage bolted on the outside of the car. All it did was add wind resistance/weight and slow the car down.
