It's been a fun 13 months since I took what looks to be the first worldwide delivery of the Mach E GT Performance Edition!

I put together a quick video to commemorate the occasion! Hope you like it! Beautiful car with intense initial acceleration. I've taken it drag racing & testing, frunk tailgating at @Iowa Hawkeyes @Wisconsin Badgers game, @Iowa Mustangs Unstabled Mustang drives & rallies, and getting lots of comments from admiring fans!

All the audio / sound, except for very end crescendo, is original and recorded by me inside or outside the car. You'll recognize the hums, I'm sure.

(Tip: the video starts all black, turn up volume a little to catch the sound)


Additional Details:
Some interesting closeup clips of front wheels on launch:

And no, I won't be trying to monetize the video - - - yet. ;) (of course that's a joke referring to previous suggestions I could and I considered it for a few days)

Some details:
  • 4,600 miles after 1 year (5,000 miles now - 1 year plus 1 month)
  • No HVBJB issues - updated software happened in series of updates in August
  • Best 1/4 mile track time was on 8/13/22: 12.389 @ 103.46mph,
    • 5 Runs with very consistent results
    • 1/4 Mile time varies only 0.093 seconds (12.389 to 12.482 seconds)
    • Trap speed varied only 0.28mph (103.35 to 103.63mph)
    • Won every run at drag strip on 8/13/22 - against two Mustangs and tuned / modified Audio & Cadillac.
  • Car is in pristine condition - stored during winter, never driven in rain, express detail every 2 weeks
  • I frequently get comments from people when I'm out and about - many saying how beautiful it is or asking how I like it.
  • I take people on short trips to show the speed and have even let about 15 people take the wheel themselves! One guy used to drag race 30 years ago and said he's not felt that kind of acceleration since he stopped racing.

All the audio / sound, except for very end crescendo, is original and recorded by me inside or outside the car. Do you recognize the sounds? Also had the tires squelch as well as some road noise (ie. sound of running over a crack on the road).

It’s been a year alright 😂. My personal fave is still your 2nd post where it got saltier than the ocean. 92k views is hilarious. Too bad @Frankie and @blue92lx are no longer active on the forum. Haha.

What were you against on your 2nd run? Maybe your best one, and barely eaked a win!

I'm not 100% sure, likely either an Audi or Cadillac. I have some GoPro video of the runs that may show the car I faced upon turnaround off the track. I'll get back to you when I take a look at home.

And many were thinking an October 2021 update was coming to take care of the 5 second power limiting issue. It has been a year alright. I've still had fun, but sure expected to knock the socks off 1/4 mile times with close to constant acceleration through the 1/4 mile.

Glad you're still loving the car. From what I've seen, you're right at the mileage where HVBJB start to fail. Hopefully yours holds up until Ford decides to pro-actively replace it.

Well - unfortunately, I recorded 4 of the 5 runs that day from a GoPro mounted inside the cabin on the ceiling. The missing recording is the 2nd run- the best time. I distinctly recall it was a Cadillac CT4 or CT5 that was being tuned - a guy had his laptop inside.

Run 1: GT PE (#E21) - vs. White Mustang GT (#1070)- won by 1.323 seconds
Run 2: GT PE (#E21) - vs. Cadillac CT4 / CT5 (#024N)- won by 0.123 seconds
Run 3: GT PE (#E21) - no competitor, I think an Audi decided not to run, had problems
Run 4: GT PE (#E21) - vs. Red Mustang (#471)- won by 6.07 seconds - had problems at the start
Run 5: GT PE (#E21) - vs. Black Mustang (#745) - won by 1.040 seconds
