Is there some kind of online calendar for build dates so I can situate my build date?
I can easily imagine FF's comming out of the Michigan plant every day, but are they grouped into batch's or Tiers or something? That could help the dealer that's going to check on my tranny, hopefully

At least per the motortrend article there was no mention of a change to the clutches until november or december of 2011 following at least one software update/ tsb. At least as far as I recall.
They were building 2012 models (at least the final confirmation prototypes) at the end of 2010 and retail production started by Feburary or March 2011. So yes June 2011 is still fairly early in terms of the production life cycle.
Now unless they would give up that propriatary information its unlikely that we'd know what changed when.
