Well that's good. Glad it's still going!

I did a track day last weekend and I think the shifting was fine. Maybe slightly more difficult to go 3rd to 4th, but might have just been a mental thing...

Did you have anything come of this random detent ball?

I can see why they used the Mustang nameplate. Plenty of marketing and clout that come free with the name usage, instead of trying to make a new name and a new legacy. I'm looking forward to seeing...
