He wanted to create a club for people to truly enjoy their cars. He knew the world had changed, and he wanted his companies to meet the needs of the new generation of Shelby owners. His vision was to knit together those people with the owners of early Shelby's and give everyone fun new ways to experience their high performance vehicles.   Mr. Shelby imagined a place where owners could talk about their latest conquests at the track, swap stories, share photos and learn new ways to hot rod their cars! He wanted to link all of the enthusiasts into one "dream garage"... thus, Team Shelby was born!   Team Shelby has many free, open access forums, news sections and member only areas dedicated to the community.   In addition, Team Shelby has a full series of events for 2018, which include VIP Experiences, track days, National & Regional gatherings, cruises, car shows and more!

  1. She has no clue how many cars that I own.
  2. GT350 to be Made in Detroit?

    I'd buy one.
  3. The No Topic Thread

    Wow, the longest thread about nothing.
  4. Shelby convention - Watkins Glen

    I'll be there. It should be a fun event.
  5. 2013 Boss 302

    Any news yet?
  6. Boss 302

    I read the WSJ article in Saturday's paper. Dan Neil has all kinds of automotive writing credentials, but I have never really agreed with any of his opinions. Frank Jackson Ford (Sandy Springs) has ~3 Boss 302's, one Boss LS, and ~3 new Shelby GT500's. They want ADM for all of them (~$4K-$6K).
  7. I have some of the old stock certificates from the old GM. My wife's granddad gave her shares many years ago. I managed to convince her to sell most of them at $50-$60 back around 2003 when GM was doing well. She insisted on keeping some shares due to emotional reasons. They are worth more now as a collector item after GM was forced in bankruptcy. Equity stockholders, preferred stockholders, many secured bondholders, and all unsecured bondholders were wiped out of billions of dollars by the quick government-forced bankruptcy. I doubt they'll be getting back in.
  8. GM was given $49.5 billion by the government. GM has have already paid back $9.5B. GM hopes to sell 365 million shares tomorrow which will lower their ownership from 61% to 35%. There will be tremendous pressure on the stock as the government unloads those additional shares in the future. The UAW and the Canadian government will also be selling. I agree. I wouldn't buy one share.

    My 2011 5.0:
  10. Shelby GT500 brakes

    The more pad area the better (the Baer has more pad area than the Brembo). The more pistons are better (heat does evil things to brakes). A six-piston, in theory, has better control on the brake pads. I'd certainly agree that drilled rotors do not work well in road racing applications. The massive heat can cause cracks from the drilled holes. If those large (vs. the small "spider" cracks which are normal) spread (and they will), you could find yourself upside down and on fire on a road race course. One secret of brake performance is a good set of cooling ducts. That is a good thing. Lane was a pioneer on Ford message boards. He offered real tech when no one else did. But he didn't properly back-up the message board with another server. The main server crashed, and the site lost years of good tech. Most of us moved to the other Mustang sites that came later. On a street car? Yes. But "minimal" on a race car is the difference between finishing on the podium and mid-pack.
  11. Shelby GT500 brakes

    Go figure. They have the same name. Robert Lane started blueovalnews.com in 1998 and had a message board (the message board is still there but the early posters, like me, have moved on to other sites). Lane also had a little disagreement with Ford when he published some Ford internal documents. Here: http://www.blueovalnews.com/lawsuit_ford/
  12. Shelby GT500 brakes

    That is the blue oval guy?
  13. Shelby GT500 brakes

    Robert M.? I'll send him an email.
  14. Shelby GT500 brakes

    Phil, I checked the Shelby Performance Parts site before I posted this thread. "A little confusing" is an understatement. Doc (And ten years of education after high school)
  15. Shelby GT500 brakes

    Thanks everyone. Is this a correct summary as it relates to rotors and calipers (brake pads can easily be changed around)? 1) The Mustang GT and the Shelby GT have the same calipers and rotors (one piece F & R). 2) The GT500 has front Brembo 14" rotors with 4-piston calipers (355mm X 32mm). These are two-piece rotors (the hat and rotor are bolted together)? The rear calipers and rotors are standard Mustang GT (one piece). 3) The Super Snake has Baer 14" Eradispeed rotors and Baer 6-piston calipers (380mm X 32mm). These are two-piece rotors.. The standard rear is GT while the optional upgrade is the Baer Eradispeed/6-piston set-up which requires a different (relocated) bracket. I believe the brake hoses are rubber (not braided steel)? Here is a picture of my standard GT brakes. Can anyone post pictures of the GT500 and SS brakes? I searched but couldn't find any pictures (I did find the above measurements which, hopefully, are correct). Front M GT: Rear (M GT):
