Prototyping crew, thanks for the jump! I didn't want you to think the radio silence means nothing is happening. We're still in motion!

Our 3D printer completed the endlink prints and shipped them to us middle of this week. As you can see, the links retain the laser sintering marks that adds a slight grainy texture to the finish.

This batch came out a bit rougher than the original ones, but definitely within range. Next step, we are now working on hand-finishing these one at a time to grind the surface smooth. Then, they'll get a bead blast.

On the imported German band front, they shipped the package on 5 December. However, the DHL shipment has lagged with some delays at customs import center, where the package languished for 3 days plus another 5 days enroute from customs to HQ.

Good news is that it appears the bands are close to touchdown!

In case you're curious, here's the live DHL tracking link, hopefully it says "Geliefert" -- Delivered by the time this reaches you!

Thanks for patience in the wait, welcome to the world of small batch and prototypes!

@MACKLINHOGAN
Ford Shelby Mustang G350
The downside of wide front tires is a phenomenon known as “tramlining.” It’s the tendency of the car to follow grooves in the road, sometimes pulling the vehicle in a direction you don’t want to go. On a drive around Detroit, the GT350 was easily thrown off course by bumps and undulations in the road.
We’ll have to spend some more time with it before we have a verdict on what it’s like to live with, but the GT350 is certainly one of the most fun cars we’ve tested.
All of this means that the 2019 GT350 has more grip to maximize performance, especially at high speeds. Outside of performance upgrades, the GT350 now offers a B&O stereo and two new shades of blue.
