I know, but it refers to the actual warranty where that language IS:

BASE WARRANTY The GT350 carries the same warranty as other Ford Mustang models. This information is covered in its entirety in the warranty information.

Big yikes.

What's GM's policy on cars like the 1LE's? Dodge with the Hellcats and drag strips?
i've seen a few posts of the SS1LE on a flat bed going straight from the track to the dealer for a new motor. also the ZLE, as long as you switch to appropriate 15w-50 oil for track time, is also covered.

they did put a huge bog on the manual ZL1s so you can't shock the hell out of the drive train at the strip, so they warranty it...but also neuter the car at the same time

Following ... Hoping the verbiage is there to exclude timed competitions, not HPDEs, which would be understandable. Would be a little silly of them to make a car called "Track Pack", market it as a track capable car, and then exclude issues caused by driving it on a track.

One can always hope that a good answer comes from FP, Tom, but if not, I am really, REALLY sorry for you folks. As for the reason, as I say regularly,

"Follow the money."

I hope to know something on Wednesday.

FP got back to me today, they are still looking into it. Initial impressions are that the car should be covered, but they have to go up the chain to make sure.

I know the service manager at my ford personally. He told me that he would help me out the best he could and word things properly if that time ever came. I have no reason to believe him. Ima keep doing what I’m doing
In the Jeep world, this is what they would call a "friendly dealer".

I am on very good terms with my dealer, but I wouldn't want to have to rely on that if something major went kaboom.

On a side note, my wife, who is a lawyer reviewed the warranty and thought that you probably would be covered, but due to the exclusion, she thought that it certainly would be a fight.
Ask her to check out the case law that has been established in relation to the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act.

While a lot of places like to quote the "pro-consumer" protections of that Act, there are also the "pro-manufacturer" stuff too. Part of the law that helps manufacturers is that which allows them to completely void a warranty on a vehicle that was been abused, and case law (legal precedent ) has established that racing and off-roading are such abuse. There are no Mustang nor Jeep exclusions.

As I mentioned, you want to find a "friendly" dealer. One that will not report you, if he happens to find a track time sheet in your Mustang.

She's underpaid and over worked. First things first...... i will wait to hear back from FP with the official answer.
