    Can anyone explain the Paxton and certificate issues? New to Shelby’s and thinking about getting a SGT and adding a SC for DD.

    all has to do with California and emissions and money for Paxton to get certified  search and lots of topics on it in this forum

    I have a Paxton and love it (installed locally)

    Ok.....I stand corrected. I was referring to the Shelby GT including the GTH. The Paxton’s that did get certified, early cars, were certified and licensed. If you get the chance to drive one you’ll like it. The Paxton’s are not like the Whipple GT/SC’s, I’ve had both. The Whipples are bad ass with incredible power, but you must know how to drive them to get out of the hole. It is a chore too remember, you want to keep the shinny side up! Lol.  The Paxton’s, can come out of the hole very strong and straight, the SC kicks in like an older dual quad car at 2800-3100 rpm’s. IMO. I perfer the Paxton over the Whipple. I now know why Carroll had them slated for all GT/SC’s. It is too bad they didn’t make many before the certification issue, just an incredibly balanced vehicle in all aspects. I have owned both and loved both.

    great explainantion

    I too have had both and prefer my current Paxton over the Whipple for a daily driver

    Thank you so much, Andrew.

    I've been looking everywhere for the trunk carpet. And yeah, I've been on the look out for the stock SGT black wheels, it looks like I'll be going with Shelby Razors instead.

    Not black but the silver stock SGT Wheels that came on the white SGT’s

    Absolutely stunning cars ! My girlfriend loves riding around in it but she doesn’t love the money I’ve poured into it lol. I have a DOB kit that I’m going to attempt to install this winter while car is down. So glad I got the Shelby, great community by far. 

    You should have no issues installing it Jason has great write ups and is easy to work with

    just installed his alternator last week

    Another thought:  If you think it came through the hood pin holes, I would get some help and just remove the hood and stand it up so it could drain through the hood pin holes.  Mark the hood so you know how it is aligned.  It may even have a few spacers / shims.  In addition disconnect the washer line near the passenger side cowl.  You can manipulate the hood to drain.    You could even remove the 4 screws and remove the scratch plate(s).  Avoid drilling any holes.      

    best idea yet

    Your welcome and just be careful ordering the carpet so you get the correct one. 

    And congratulations on your new shelby
