Built 3 thursday and as far as I know no problems. These are what they call 1PP builds that they use for testing and then they have a date with the crusher. They said we will strat making the production models in june. Let me tell you that motor is big compared to the 4.6 gt motor. They had a proto type clutch on the motor there that looked like a prostock clutch. They had the built shelby's in the yard but I don't want to lose my job just to get into one and beat the living sh** out of it. Thats all for now I'll keep you updated.

But I bet he's not able to take his phone into work. I know we're not allowed to have any camera's at all at my job, so I bet's it's the same way at his place.
