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!

  3. 2018 Shelby GT350 engine noise

    I presume you know that the Comprehensive part of your insurance covers this? My wife has hit a deer two times over the years. Once was in a Lincoln LS (which has an aluminum hood); the total bill was a whopper. Cost me the $50 deductible each time. Have lost many a windshield over the years (three on my 4 yr old Navigator so far). Costs $50.... And that’s why I carry $50 Comprehensive deductible on all my vehicles.
  4. Agree. Someone took your cover. The airbag is replaced on the back of your cover.....
  5. Don’t know if you have access to a lift, but you can check pinion angle real easy with an iPhone. Just measure the angle at the back of the transmission and at the pinion snout. I think mine were the same at about 3 degrees. Suspension must be loaded and the car reasonably level. Having an adjustable UCA is a must to make this work, especially if you have replaced the UCA mount on the chassis: I noticed the UCA mounting holes on the heavy duty mount were different from stock.
  6. Maybe an hour or so. Very easy installs.
  7. Got my right side fixed today. Very easy update — the tech gets .3 hrs to install it.
  8. Received a letter today stating the passenger-side airbags are now available. Haven’t checked with the dealer regarding parts yet.
  9. Looking for help on Shelby Alcoa's

    Ditto. Have 275/35 on 20x9’s on the front and rear (which are 20x10’s). Can probably go 295’s on the rear with no problem as stock is 285’s on 9.5” rims.
  10. How to know if my car has magnetic dampers?

    There is a wiring harness attached to the bottom of the front struts and the top of the rear shocks.
  11. Insurance for High Horsepower Shelby's

    I use Grundy for my basic (stated value) policy, and get an event-specific policy for HPDEs (like Lockton). I had previously used Hagerty, but their rate nearly tripled a few years ago on my GT500KR. When I called and asked why, they said any car over 500 horsepower was considered an “exotic” and those rates were considerably higher. So I checked around and went with Grundy at a reasonable rate.
  12. The company that made the faulty airbags is on the hook to replace them. However, the challenge was so great so they have declared bankruptcy.
  13. That’s what mine did too. When I went over a big pavement change under hard acceleration, I got a clunk. If I backed off just before the bump, I didn’t get a clunk. Otherwise, was smooth and worked great.
  14. The KR diff cover has some cooling fins and is a bit thicker than the normal GT500. Next time I get it on the lift, Ill take a pix. But after the initial install, there was only 1/4 clearance, if that much. No real variances in the install process as its a bolt-in deal. I do have the Shelby adjustable upper control arm and tweaked it a bit to pull the top part of the pumpkin forward without dramatically changing the pinion angle. Now have a bit more clearance. The Watts bracket/propeller mechanism prevents a good look to see if there has been contact. But if you hit a significant bump, the axle could move rearward just enough to have the bolt hit the diff cover. Ill do some more looking on a lift.
