We should see some delivered at Sand Sports.

Did they say that on the last video?

Cars delivered by or at SSSS?

And then stop the line because of some other unforeseen problem that plagues all production lines.

At least they caught the Porosity issue in the casting.

Yes. Some cars delivered before SSSS.

Cool, it will be worth going this year just for the Speed Booth no doubts, I expect it to be the busiest booth this year by far.

It was the busiest booth last year so I bet it will be this year too.

Yep.  Always issues once you're looking at actually mass-produced items vice hand-picked "samples" your vendor sent.

Whats your car model #? You have a master # and a model #. I’d guess they will build in rounds of 500. 
 

Originally they were going to do two rounds of 500 of 4 seaters, then 500 of the Diablo, then another round of 4 seaters, then Diablos. Then after the Jefe & Diablo’s were built they would start Bandits. But I’ve also heard this has changed to rounds of 400, then I heard because of the demand for 4 seaters, they could do 3 rounds of 4 seaters, then jump to Diablos. So if your car model # is within 400-500 your probably is the first round of Diablos. If higher then 500, then I’d guess second round.
 

But as Todd said after the Sand Sports release they hope to have all pre orders built within 60 days and delivered by the end of the year if possible. At least that’s the goal. 
 

If you just plan for the first of the year, then you should not be disappointed and maybe happily surprised if it’s earlier then that. 

I had mentioned that I heard/told that they could do 3 rounds of 400 Jefe’s (1200 units) first then do Diablos. Looks like Todd publicly confirmed it.

Yes they have. Robbie is living in Asia now. He showed it and talked about it. Why do you think it has been silent around Speed?? RG is gone with my/our money living like a king in Malaysia. I heard there are hot chicks there. Just watch out for the adams apple.

If they're a 10, they're a man.

Good thing I go for 9's. 10's are high maintenance.

If you get two 5s is that a 10?

If someone bought the base model 4 seater....what are the options they are losing out huge opportunity on?

Example, you didn't choose a base model because you could not live without the "..."

So how many do you think they deliver by sand show? I say 50 tops.

So you think they will trickle out 50 units?

Speed is posting 3 rounds of 1000's per type.

 

I think it's going to be an all or nothing scenario. It's be a disappointed ticket holder if they started to just trickle out 50 by SSSS.

At what point to you stop "Re-working" your product and get the production line rolling? I'd say supplier issues are the main factor right now, or i would hope that the only real problem stopping them :moof:

Master 1496 here. Had an El Diablo RG edition number 84 or something. Then changed to a El Jefe RG car. Not sure what the model number is anymore cause I was never reassigned another one?? I remember RG saying that he wanted to get as many RG edition cars out first then the LE’s. Not sure if that’s still his plan. Hoping to be in the last batch of cars @NIKAL talked about.

I agree that the Speed UTV booth will be busy.
Either production cars for everyone to see. 
Or a line for refunds.

Base model is the best bang for your buck for what you get at that price. Especially if you did not get in under the original LE & RG pricing and free Speed Key. 
 

The car is identical to the LE & RG in performance. The LE & RG have some nice features that are super convenient right off the show room floor, but not mandatory. 
 

If I bought a base model Diablo, and I might do that in a few years for me & my daughter to do some local D38 racing and maybe NORRA. The only must have for me is the roof. Then again I could just skin it with aluminum. The rest like radios I would just buy & install myself. 

With a base vs LE you lose the custom graphics, & chassis suspension color change. The choice of wheels & beadlocks, the roof, and the carbon fiber seats. Additional things lost compared to the RG trim are the LE trim plus Suede seats & steering wheel. Race radio & intercom, window nets and RG edition graphics.
