    Holy shit, weight to power ratio of 5.86..... that’s super heavy!

    I guess Farruko was wrong with his predicted 5.76 number, it’s even worse..

    Not buying into any type of active aero, would add more weight on top of this. Interesting though to see the top speed figure, either it's drag limited or the axle ratio is keeping it down.

    Maybe they figure they've played the 200 MPH game before and decided to focus solely on track times (road course and 1/4 mile). You probably aren't going to need a 200 MPH top speed for either of those.

    I share your skepticism. A misspelling on an official form label (as opposed to just the text entered into a field) is a bit odd.

    I’m skeptical on this as well. Too many things don’t align, and the mistakes in spelling, word choice, etc

    And I thought for sure they were clear it would be over 200 mph? Did I imagine that or is there info somewhere that confirms that.

    this went up at camaro6 fast. Seems shady with the typo and I really don’t see how they added that much weight over a 350r. Be skeptical guys

    Yeah. There’s a lot of errors in there. Just take a moment and read through it people. If Ford put this document together, expect some serious bumper gaps.
