Angry Rack and Pinion - WET

So, I did the first oil change at 2,880 miles.
Looky what I found underneath on the rack and pinion.
Seems a bit wet to me.
I cleaned it up, and will check back in a couple days to see if I can narrow down where it's coming from.
Anyone else have this "situation" with their SVT?

I believe my looks like that too. Is that normal?

I sure wouldn't think so at less than 3,000 miles!

that looks nasty. hopefully there isn't a leak. maybe it's just grease caked with dirt?
