    I can’t wait for the white myself.
    Does anyone know if the offer the stripes in colors other than black and white? Would love to see red on blue. I love how it looks on the FGT.

    I can't bring myself to link "Stangmode's" YouTube video from a recent Ford event. He provided zero technical detail but was sure impressed by the prop rod! Trying to even grab some screen caps from his ShakePhone1000 was near impossible but I managed a few of the rain tray and oil separator.

    Our good friend Steve Turner was there. I know he'll bring the smack on this one soon.

    I thought that was an odd spot for a prop rod,.....on the strut tower brace.

    I doesn't look like there will be much engine cooling or down force related to the hood scoop with drain tray installed.

    Where are they draining the accumulated oil in the oil separator?

    I was all about the St. Patrick’s Day post color shots or what have you. This, NO THANKS! I’m with Smooth! Hard to call that green.

    The green looks slightly less awful in the first pic. Anyone here see it in person yet?

    I’ve seen it on classics in person. I think it’s awesome.

    But, I also think it looks good in these photos, so that puts me in a very small minority.

    I've only seen the Orange in person and, while it looked good, it did not look as good as the pictures.

    The last time I saw Green like that was changing my kids diapers 20+ years ago.

    I’m sitting back Stangless for the next 12 - 18 months or so. Sold my modded daily 2013 back in March when I got company car. I’m not an auto/DCT guy for my weekend fun car so will wait and see if 2021 adds a manual or will seek out a heavily modded, very low mileage 13/14 to buy and keep long term.

    If 2021 brings a manual I would opt for Base car w/o stripes either in Red Candy/Dark Red or Sterling Grey. No CF package. Hate the theft target tall wing and overpriced CF wheels. Some 20” Vossen’s and mods to bring to 900rwhp on E85 and I’m good.

    LOL. "Overpriced" CF wheels. They are CF...the price is the price. There's nothing overpriced about them. And when you take into account the total 920A option package for example on a 350R is at $7500, they aren't overpriced from Ford. And if you park your shit at walmart, you might get messed with. How many ZR1's, ZL1 1LE's, 350R's etc. have you seen at Walmart?

    Theft can occur anywhere. His point is certainly valid regarding what Ford has shown so far in terms of simple things that they could do (that they aren't) to inhibit your wing or wheels from being stolen very quickly and very easily.

    Frankly, I just hate the big ricer wing. CF wheels not worth the cost IMHO for my purposes. Plus I just think there are nicer looking aftermarket forged offerings. It’s a personal preference not an arguable topic.

    And all you had to say was that the Base GT500 fits your purpose. Which many on here would totally understand and agree with. Instead you come up with some other BS justifications which are opinionated with regard to the wing and just ignorance with regard to the CF wheels.

    Not sure the reason for being confrontational. I thought forums were open to expressing ones opinion. I know some guys love the wing and CF wheels. I’m not attacking them just saying I do not.

    Its a race car. Ford built a race car. For the track. If the owner of the race car wants to go grocery shopping with the big wang an all then how is this Fords problem? They built a race car for the track. Not a race car to go get baby formula.

    I think it's more about not just your's but the general uniformed, inexperienced, misrepresentation about the CF wheels functionality and cost point.
