To answer your question I have 66,771 miles on my 2007 Shelby GT 500. Yup, you read that right. I've had no problems so far with my clutch.
It's a daily driver, I bought it used from a dealer with 44K miles and the original owner was an adult woman.
I've been to the drags twice with it, once at the 2011 Shelby meet in Tulsa and another on Test & Tune night. Both times I couldn't hook up on street tires, the Shelby meet was 103 degrees so that was a blow out too.
At this point I'm looking for a clutch as mine is fading and engages at the last point of pedal travel. Haven't decided to go aftermarket or 2010 Ford.
ps- I'm an Airline Mechanic with 32 yrs experience and do almost all my own maintenance.
Our local GT500 guru here in NE Oklahoma - Mike Mayopolis of Pinnacle Perf. www.pinnaclerepairs.com seems to think I hold some kind of record for a 2007 clutch.
I'll most likely have him swap it out. Bench pressing a Tremec sucks, T5's I can handle.
