  1. I’m partial to this as well. If your car lives in a garage on the not so nice days the stripes hold up well. Mine on both my ‘08 SGT and KR look factory new. Neither car has seen water, which helps. I keep them clean with a duster and spray detailer with UV protectant. I detail under the car and wheel wells 1 a year with a light simple green solution. I have 13k + miles in the KR, so it’s no like you cant drive them with the vinyl. Either way your SGT is going to be sweet! Post pics. 👍🏻
  2. I ordered the lower grille. I got my pre-order notification and that’s it; updates have been null. Doing the math though, parts still have another month before they are ready...
  3. I have the Shaker 1000 in my ‘08 KR and and Shaker 500 in my ‘08 SGT. I actually think the Shaker 500 sounds better, more balanced. Then again most of the time they are in the “off” position so I can hear the sound of speed. 😈 I never unplugged my Shaker 1000 sub, but my guess is the entire system would either sound like a 500 or simply shut down?
  4. I personally love the look of the razor wheels, particularly in satin or gunmetal. That said a set of 20” Alcoa’s always look great on any 2008-2009, but were part of the SS program. I have not seen Venom on a gen 1 S197, but why not? It’s just a jack, lug nut and a tire sensor programmer to swap them. Enjoy the car! White 40th’s are one of my personal all time favorites for appearance BTW. 👍
  5. Cool pic!!! even with the random GT500 in there. 😏
  6. Very nice Tom! Where abouts in Ohio are you? Also, trying to figure out your signature CobraSVT88. 🧐
  7. How many people have placed pre-orders? I also find the communication lacking. All I have ever received is an order confirmation.
  8. I’m fortunate enough to own a ‘08 GT500KR and a 08’ SGT convertible. As far as driving I prefer the SGT. Even in the convertible trim it feels more balance than the KR. The steering, clutch and brakes are all lighter. The car is truly a pleasure to drive. My KR puts out over 600hp, so it’s just a beast...fun to unleash at times but also keep you on your toes. If I had to let one go, it would probably be the KR. As far as owning a Shelby GT over a GT/CS, I personally don’t think there is a comparison. The Shelby is more special mostly due to the suspension. One other consideration would be a 2012 Boss 302. It might take a bit more work to find one under $20k, but they are fantastic cars for the money.
  9. SIA does. Has been clearing them out in their eBay store. This listing has ended, but keep watching their store or contact them ...https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F193001820985
  10. I’m lucky to have one myself. Like you I was a fan when they first came out, but it just wasn’t in the cards for me until a couple of years ago. Welcome BTW!
  11. Congrats! I was in a grey Hyundai rental headed north and you south on I-71. I’m pretty sure I could have flashed the lights, honked the horn and stuck my head out the window and would have still blended into the sea of metal and concrete. You on the other hand looked good my friend. 👍🏻
  12. I thought there was a sighting area, but I could not find it. Anyway, I’m traveling for work and saw this SGT in Ohio on I70. No doubt it was this car. New owner looked to be enjoying. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F173985792719
  13. See there is a very nice white Paxton on the market now. You thinking maybe picking one on these up? Until the C8 came out I found myself saying “no way would I ever own a Vette”...but now I’m not so sure that still holds true.
  14. I played with the rotation as well when centering. The issue I ran into quickly is the rotation changes the pitch and yaw, so I could get the tip centered but it was coming out on an angle. (If that makes sense). The only way I could get it centered and straight was bending the hanger. Also, I forgot to mention I bent the hangers at their original bend points only.
