I had no clue that they were taking reservations I thought it was February 1st. Well now I’m 7th on the alternative list for a 2021 KR build. Irritated and it may not happen for me but I was told I would get a call on Feb 1st to a put deposit down if they make it to the alternative list. Unless someone wants to give up there 21 reservation :)

Hey guys I just wanted to elaborate on this process as I've been back and forth with Shelby this morning. So technically no one has a spot until you pay a deposit. Once you pay the deposit your order is confirmed. You can't release your spot to anyone else as from Shelby it is not your spot to give and is against their policy. Shelby places everyone on a list and it goes from top to bottom of when you reserved to be on thus said list. When Shelby calls on February 1st and you do not make the deposit then you will be removed and they will go down the list to the next person and so forth till all available slots have been filled with a deposit.

All I can say is that I did not understand this process exactly and no where do they define such a process. I'm hoping to educate others as I have myself now. My character was definitely questioned today with Shelby to which I didn't appreciate and I very well made that known to them. Hope it works out for everyone that is considering the KR I'm sure it will be worth doing but it has definitely left a bad impression with me in regards to how Shelby handled this.

I bet several don't ante-up and some spots will open up. Good luck. If not, you can always go back in time and get a loaded 09' KR 😎😁
Thanks I spoke with Gary Patterson about it in more and basically most of the orders go to those who are repeat customers or have standing orders for the next best thing. Regardless their process isn’t defined the whole 60 slots ordeal is a lot less when most are already spoken for in the first place before someone like you or me has a chance to order. Matt the sales manager is whom I have most of my issues with he was a jerk about all of it. I’m sure he could care less what I think but it makes a difference to who I want to spend money with that’s for sure.
