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 2019, which include VIP Experiences, track days, National & Regional gatherings, cruises, car shows and more!

  1. 2020 GT500 news

    Tax free loan btw...no sale = no revenue = no tax.
  2. My car is (in the vid) stock NA...but here is why I posted.. A buddy of mine has a true 2008 GT/SC 550 Whipple. When he had the stock exhaust set up with the GTA’s you couldn’t tell our cars apart...they sounded the same to us. Then he went catless, Bassini X pipe and GTA’s. A bit more bark, but no drone. Then he then put on SLP loudmouths and at WOT and on decel the sound was great, but for me the drone at cruise was just terrible. I tried his SLP my car just to see and they sounded the same...then I went Atak. We never did try my Borla on his car because he like the SLP’s. I’m not sure if any of this even helps...at all. It’s just a sample of 2 that the GTA’s are very forgiving and drone was pretty much non existent no matter the set-up. So if (big if) the Atak’s are tuned on the same 4.6 frequency as the GTA’s...then in theory they should not drone with stock headers, cats and mid pipe. One other consideration...and one I factored when I purchased - just last year - The 4.6 Ataks are a pretty reasonable and easy to sell on eBay. So if you try and do not like selling for close to what you paid should not be a problem. Good luck!!
  3. I have Atak on my car. Sound great abc NO drone, none at all. Atak: Stock GTA’s:

    Road & Track just posted a vid of the car running
  5. Converted GT to GT/SC or GT500

    The 13’s and 14’s received some significant performance upgrades over the 11’s & 12’s, so within the 10-14 body style they are the most saught after. If you watch the market for a bit (autolist is a great site to do that) you’ll see the 13’s & 14’s (that are priced to attracted buyers) move pretty quickly, where the 11’s & 12’s sit for quite a while.
  6. Converted GT to GT/SC or GT500

    How many miles on each of these cars? 2011’s don’t have a ton of demand, so it’s something to consider. You might be able to do a bit better than $36k (depending on mileage) I’m sure you found the interior of the 2011 is much improved over the 2007.
  7. 2020 GT500 news

    Only the SVT team and a few others knows for sure, but if I had to guess based on what history has thought us it came down to the fact that Easton was the only supplier to pass the durability and endurance tests required by Ford to slap the warranty on the window. As for cost, it’s hard to say, but this car fully packed out could very well push the $100k mark, so I wouldn’t think that would be as much as a factor. I like that it’s only available with a dual clutch. This leaves the GT350 as the manual option. I think it’s a smart descision by STV. One thing is for certain...in track pack form it’s going to rip faster around Laguna Seca than you can say ZL1 1LE.
  8. GT/SC Shelby Registry numbers

    Lucky for us Blue oval folk, the documentation is there. Reprint or orig window stickers matching the VIN and Shelby registry. In the long run it will be that the SGT’s and KR’s are true pedegree cars. I’m a classic car guy. I have been fortunate to be part of a very generous and experienced crowd. I can tell you, those with gold cars, big money car guys don’t care about those paper details as much. They do care about the small details greatly however. The joke is any car can be widdled down to 1 of 1 on paper. And true value...the differed between a bare bones B2 and a my fully loaded Detroit Locker W code...negligible. On the flip side, 2 Shelby’s Heritage GT...that’s more special than a base, but the options in it...negligible. In 20 years the SGT build markings will be more important. That’s what will be talked about at gatherings. Date code battery and tires...you bet. Orig markings uder the hood, you bet. That little silver “x” used to center the stripes...that’s special.
  9. What SC setup is now available

    I always wondered how much lineage was factored in from the Paxton/McCulloch package in 65 & 66’s. Original plan on making the Paxton as the exclusive charger for the SC makes a lot sense when you think about it: heritage, at the time you could go to the dealer and get screw type on the GT500, plus it allowed the functional strut tower brace to stay put. Does it generate much BOV noise? Thanks.
  10. What SC setup is now available

    Just trying to get a feel for the comments made on why Paxton vs Whipple on power delivery. Again, I have never driven a Paxton, but have been seriously considering putting a ‘07 white GT/SC in a vacant garage spot (or a 08KR...but that is another topic). I’m not a fan of flat and straight, but some are and thus speed is all relevant. You can just as easily end it all in 1st or 2nd, it just depends on the road, conditions and surroundings. We all know this. I’m a 2 wheel junkie and thus a tire nerd. Tires, pressure, etc can make ALL the difference. During track days some of my most puckering moments seem to have been in a lower gear. It’s been years since I have done any, and I don’t plan on any in the near or even distant future. Now a days it’s off road enduro’s and in the car the obscure twisty roads are my pleasure, and I don’t plan on pushing it to far their either.
  11. What SC setup is now available

    What size and brand of tires were you running, same on both you owned? I have never driven a Paxton and the wipple’s I have been behind the wheel on had the stock “secretary’s car” shoes. That combination keeps you busy.
  12. Time Capsule Shelby

    That stinks that the dealers just do it. There are a lot of no drill kits on the market.
  13. KR Photo Thread

    Nice photo!
  14. Time Capsule Shelby

    Shiny! I could not agree more with the front plate holder Steve. That’s a deal breaker for many. Mine only has around 2300 miles on the clock, but I’ll let her purr no less than once a month and when I do drive it...I DRIVE IT. Maybe 100 miles in 5th. 🤘
