I'm about to light into AM tomorrow. They need to provide some answers. How the hell could production take this long.

I saw Vaughn on shark tank asking for 400k to fulfill the decklid order.

They go off of what RTR tells them. I'd contact them if anyone.

Yeah they need to take that advertisement down if they have no clue as to what is actually going on with the decklids.

Mikey that's some interesting new findings. That probably means it's not even relatively close....

I could've sworn someone earlier in the thread said they contacted a female rep and again, had no dates...

What will that do? They can't control RTR. If you're tired of waiting, ask for a refund and be done with it. Come back later when they get their sh*t together.

Well for starters, it's false advertisement so they need to take that crap down. And I would, but then I probably won't be able to get my hands on one seeing as how this has been such a huge deal for 3+ months. I'll keep my preorder till I'm told it'll never reach my damn hands lol. But I can annoyed in the mean time, and this thread is here to be bumped with any new information. Anybody who contacts anybody helps.

Not necessarily, it clearly says Pre-order and doesn't list a definite date.

I'll relate it to a video game again, because it's an easy comparison.

Pre-order starts before the game's release date is announced. Meaning, you spend your money now and they give you a general date. That date is subject to change due to any number of reasons.

Now, I will agree the lack of information from RTR is crap. However, the dealers and retailers are getting that same lack of information and you can bet they're all putting pressure on RTR to get their crap together. Otherwise the dealer loses money.

I get that, but I keep getting dates, and dates, more dates. The day I ordered it, I was told it would be to my door in 21 days. I know how a preorder works, an I know they can be pushed back, just like a video game. But it's getting out of control.

And they need to take the early October crap down regardless if it's not a specific date or not, it's a false statement because that time has come and gone...

Yeah I've been speaking with him periodically. I know this isn't on him, but I keep getting dates from him and whatnot. I just wish I had something definitive to go off of. Because if I did, and say I wasn't going to get my damn hands on this thing for say another 6 months because RTR is a bunch of fudge packers, then I'd just cancel my order. I could use the money elsewhere especially with xmas right around the corner. But I'm not a quitter lol, hard to cancel 4 months into this crap.

I've tried getting RTR's attention on twitter & facebook as a last resort. Still nothing to report back with. RTR is building a very poor reputation in my book with the way they are handling all this.

Sucks but it seems like this happens with some smaller companies with 'high demand' parts. I remember when I had my Trans Am I wanted a WS9 hood and they literally kept pushing the date back a few weeks. And I waited 3 months and needed a new hood so just got a WS6 hood. Good thing I didn't wait because it ended up being well over a year that they kept pushing it back a few weeks.

Whats horrible with a part like this is that regardless of how many times RTR says this and doesn't deliver people will still buy it because there are not any comparable parts out there. I'm not blaming them for taking this long but they shouldn't provide a date if they cant deliver.

I take that back. The email says they are shipping a batch out Monday or tuesday. And then 10-20 decklids will go out each day after that until they are caught up. So...it depends on where your vendor is on the list. I've also learned that two vendors have been shipped a batch already. I'm pretty sure some of you will be recieving shipping confirmation this week. I guess rtr has been keeping the vendors up to date with every thing, but the vendors wouldn't disclose anything to the customers.

No friggin way!!!!! Dude, if that's true...Monday or Tuesday, you mean today and tomorrow, or next week? I chose to order with Blow By Racing because they stated that they would be THEE FIRST vendor to receive them....if the information is out there and not being related...

Quick poll. Save for this, FRPP Handling pack, or for the Boss side exhaust?

Ok. I wonder why that is? Why they'll be syphoning them out like that. I also wonder how many orders were placed...so many questions, not enough answers. Thanks man.

Likely because they didn't anticipate the demand and made too few. Or too few have passed quality assurance. The LAST thing they need is crappy quality going out after all this waiting.

For those who have pre-ordered, when did you pre-order? I pre-ordered mine Sep 25 from AM. Hopefully we all get one in the early batches.

I agree, and assumed the same. I'm not going to be a happy camper if I receive mine, and it's screwed. Honestly though, I'd probably keep it if it was structurally intact, because I plan on having it painted Oxford white. All in all, however many people ordered this blasted thing, I'm sure are just as upset with the lack of information from both vendor and RTR. I'm sure these miscues could've been avoided.

Brilliant! Lol I'd like to think, or at least hope, that I was one of the first few to order. BBR had the offer well before stangmods, and obviously AM. But nothing's guaranteed, and it'll be just my luck lol. At that point, the order will be cancelled. F that.

Completely off topic, but everyone's first mods should be some suspension work.

The FRPP handling pack is nice. Ie: get it.

Yeah, that's what I figured. It's going to take a while for me to save up for it. As I have no job right now, and with college, probably won't until near summer.
