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!

  1. We can schedule whenever you guys want to go. Just let me know.
  2. I'm just outside of Charlotte. If anyone in NC wants to take a day and run up to the mountains for some spirited driving I'm happy to lead the way. Spirited pace but not too illegal. Maybe hit a brewery afterwards. Or we could schedule an overnight somewhere with two days of driving. I'm up for whatever.... except hanging around at car shows for extended periods of time talking about cars. That gets old and I'd rather be driving.
  3. https://www.msn.com/en-us/autos/enthusiasts/hot-things-going-on-at-shelby-american/ar-AAxtwiR?li=BBnbfcL#image=AAxts1F|1 Another article. When I was living in Boston from 1998 - 2002 a local high end dealer had two Shelby Series 1 cars on their showroom. Sadly, they sat there for years and were still there when I left. I am guessing the eventually found a home, but maybe the Series 2 will have a better result with a Ford powerplant. 800 HP in that car would be impressive.
  4. Brakes Upgrade

    I've got the Shelby Wilwood's on my car and tracked several times. With the cooling vents completed in addition, I never experienced brake fade once. I did break a carbon driveshaft accelerating hard out of the final corner though...
  5. Problems after clutch.

    Holy Crap! That is crazy. Coincidence that this started right after your clutch install. I'll defer to others about commenting on heads, pistons. You may want to research with Revan Racing and Watson Racing.
  6. Problems after clutch.

    I would also question the installer for your clutch. If that guy is worth his salt, he should know the computer has to be reprogramed to account for the aluminum flywheel.
  7. Problems after clutch.

    Did you go with an aluminum flywheel? The tune has to account for that as it is spinning less mass. Could be the problem.... I would definitely try the crank re-learn and see what happens. Good luck!
  8. 2015-2018 GT350 Owners

    Welcome. While I don't have a newer GT350, I have a 2009 GT500 and drive it quite a bit. Are you in NC? Great opportunities to take the car to local Cars and Coffee or similar events and then head up to the mountains or country roads to enjoy the car. Enjoy!
  9. Looks completely stock to me. If that is the case, I don't see where you would have had an aftermarket tune on the car. Maybe the original ECM was faulty...? At any rate, if the sensors came back online and you are experiencing no issues, I wouldn't worry about it. Go drive and enjoy!
  10. 2015-2018 GT350 Owners

    That's awesome. I would love to own a GT350 but I have to unload my GT500 to make room in my garage. The GT500 is definitely more of a touring car and I agree the Recaros are designed to hug you which would be perfect for tracking the car. I guess my 4 extra inches in height and 20 extra lbs makes the difference for day to day comfort. The high revs are addictive. That Viper just fit me like a glove though.... maybe one day I'll own both.
  11. Hmmm..... Are there any modifications to the intake or exhaust? What can you share about the car? If it is bone stock, then I wouldn't worry about an aftermarket tune, but if you have modifications I would take the car to a local tuner and get it set up properly. Take some photos of the engine bay and post if you get a chance.
  12. Congrats and nice colors. For the sensors to come back online, there is an entire process that you have to follow of which your Ford dealership should be able to provide for you. It is supposed to simulate many driving scenarios, but I think it is a little ridiculous myself. Every time I change my battery, I have to go through the process again on the stock tune and the re-flash my custom tune. Depending on what upgrades are on your car, you will potentially need to get a new custom tune to ensure the car is not running to lean which could lead to serious engine failure. Better safe than sorry. Good luck and have fun with your new Shelby.

    After sitting in the Viper, I'm sold. Really love that Gen 5 car and the lines remind me of my old Gen 2 GTS. Now.... waiting for the right one and figuring out where to put it?
  14. 2015-2018 GT350 Owners

    Yesterday I stopped by a high end used dealership to look at a 2016 GT350 Track Pack car with 12 miles on the odometer as I have been considering to purchase. I'm 6'3" and 195 with an athletic build. When I sat in the car, the first thing I thought was, "damn these Recaros are uncomfortable". The bolsters were pushing up against my lats and my legs felt pinched together. This is great if you are tracking the car on a regular basis as it holds you in tightly. Terrible if you just want a daily driver or a car to go have fun for a few hours now and then. I would have a hard time driving that car for more than 30 minutes to an hour without wanting to get out. Kind of like the old sport bike days.... I would ride my sport bikes all day long when I was younger. Now I don't want to be on one hardly at all because they are so uncomfortable. Conversely, they had a 2016 Viper Time Attack which also had bolstered seats. I sat in the Viper and could drive that all day with no issue. The Recaros in the GT350 are really made for someone of much smaller build and anyone who is overweight would not be happy. As a result, my lust for the GT350 is waning and I'm glad I did not jump in and buy one when they came out.

    Very cool onboard Sam... and nice controlled slide in the infield!
