    Looks like Han Solo is not dead, and the Force is strong with this one. Finally took delivery of my 2016 SHelby GT350 with 6 miles on the ticker. Got it from Elk Grove Ford and was an awesome experience. Had it out for the first time at cars & coffee. Then took it up to AED to throw it on the Dyno. Great day overall and the car was well received. if you have the opportunity to buy one, i suggest you do so and don't wait. Totally worth the money. Anyway, onto some pics/videos

    I assume he tuned it on 91 octane, correct? With his extensive experience with e85 I hope Shaun jumps on the Flex Fuel bandwagon. It's interesting to see the power curve begin to taper down at around 7500. The JLT graph stays completely flat to redline.

    The car was not tuned. Just ran it a second time after some cool down. I would love to tune it, but not worth voiding my warranty.

    Shaun has been working with VMP a bit. He would like to do some data logging and tune it, but I won't let him yet:D

    I paid 5k over. As did my buddy who got their 2nd allocation.

    I was able to deal with the owner of the dealership directly. Gave me his cell number and told me to call him whenever I had questions or concerns. He is a gearhead also and wants the car back for shows. Also is willing to take care of me if any issues arise with the car. It was a GREAT experience having a dealer 10 miles from me that is that supportive. Also considering selling me an R if he gets an allocation next year.

    If you have a chance to deal with them on any car I encourage it. I will get you in contact with the right person if you ever want to get anything from them.

    I might contact them in a few months, hopefully the market calms down a bit so I can get MSRP. Not looking to pay any ADM, but I'll keep their customer service in mind.
