    I think its time for the traditional speculative thread to commence...

    To start things off, I found this over at TM.com, very interesting:

    Yes things are changing quickly. We all saw the delays in Q3 that came from reconfiguring the production line. But now the MS productivity has improved. Since they are not producing MX yet, it is all about MS.
    They are producing 65 MSs per shift X 2 shifts per day = 130 per day. I know in September they were running 7 days/week to meet Q3 production targets, especially to make up for the August shutdown.
    TM will likely continue with 2 shifts/day. Weekends? Not sure on that. 3rd shift? Not likely. Time for maintenance and restocking.
    So we know they've got 650/week. Will they ramp up to 910/week running 7 days/week?
    They just built my MS over last weekend. Into Production Thursday. Ready to pick-up late Monday. Actual delivery on Tuesday. They are getting quick.

    Factory tour. No photos. But read a white board facing the tour group.
