Found a few days this year to dragrace my 5.0L. It went as quick as 12.15 in the 1/4 mile, and trap speeds in the 115-117 mph range. I just had 4.56 gears installed 2 weeks ago - talk about a high-strung beast on the street! Here's a couple recent pics....

PPS - you've got a six speed manual? With 4.56?

Man - I've got 3.73's and first gear is quick. I can't imagine your gears.....

Good to hear from you Brian and even better to hear that you are keeping busy. Tana & I are also very busy these days as well. Work, Grand kids and family keeps us busy. We enjoyed the 82 dry spell streak and now that the rains are here Tana & I winterized our cars.

David is doing very well, He graduates from HS in the Spring and is trying to finish up his AA degree at Clark college before he leaves in June.

Tana & I are very proud of David....to say the least. Here are a few photos from our summer.

Thanks! Hoping to see some 11.90's in the spring now that the 4.56's are in the car (I ran that 12.15 with the factory 3.73's).

I had 3.73's originally and made about 100 passes at the track this year. The 4.56's just went in. I've only made a few runs with them in the car, and I'm learning to shift all over again since the gears go by so quickly! My 60' is much better now (best of 1.68, with most in the 1.70 - 1.75 range). I run a pretty tall tire (28" tall drag radials for race day and 29" tall tires on the street), so the 4.56's are managable. On the street I often start in 2nd gear with the extra gear.

I've always been a believer in big gears. Gears, by definition, are a torque multiplier. I had 4.10's in my '07 GT, 4.30's in my '03 Mach 1, etc. They make the car so entertaining on the street; I highly recommend them!

Thanks! I'm gonna try to set aside some time to spend more time around here. There are so many good people here!

While I've been away from Team Shelby, I've still been involved with GT500's. I've changed roles a couple of times in the past couple years at the Ford dealership where I work, but I've remained the SVT Sales Director for our store since 2002, so I'm very actively involved in ordering every Shelby we sell and meeting with those customers. I don't know that I'll ever be able to afford a new Shelby so I was thrilled to have our first '13 GT500 customer let me take his car out for a drive with him riding shotgun egging me on to explore it's capabilities.

Grabber, nice pics of the family! We're very proud of David, as well. We pray he stays safe in his travels! Good to see you, Tana, David, and Harley are well.

My girls are 20 and 19 now. My 20 year old finished her AA and trained to be a dental assistant and got a job right out of school in her field. My 19 year old graduated from HS in June and is now training to be an EMT, then will go on to become a paramedic after that.

Shirley and I have continued hiking and climbing smaller mountains and also took up bicycling this year to get in shape. We learned to love biking while in the Netherlands a couple years ago as we rode around the Dutch countryside.

Time with friends and family means more and more as the years pass. Glad to see some familiar faces are still here at Team Shelby!

Have you changed shifters?

The OEM shifter in my car is not consistently accurate.
