You mean like this one? Too bad they didn't come with a factory diff (autocross specific issue.)

To this I can attest. Though your race seats might make putting someone in the back rather difficult.

No, I made a snark about it on FB, because Ford Performance's post there WAS HEAVY ON THE CAPS LOCK KEY.

It popped up yesterday on the Jalopnik feed and I called out clyde on it, but he ignored me. With a 3.73 rear end, though, the gearing is probably too short for what he wants.

Seems like big money, and it's weird that the tires are square but the wheels aren't.
