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. HRE wheels on my GT350

    I looked at that Bendpack setup a while back. Looks like it works pretty good. Black wheels definitely seem to be the trend these days.
  2. So Hard Not To Love This GT350R

    Sweet. Post a video of your track time if you have one.
  3. I've had one more thought about the new noise.... it started happening after I installed the UCA from a '13/14 GT500. Kelly at BMR suggested this would be a good upgrade without going with a fully adjustable UCA and increasing NVH. He said it creates a better pinion angle, but now I'm beginning to wonder if the pinion angle is the problem and causing my carbon driveshaft to clunk under hard loads? I'll be making the call to BMR tomorrow to discuss.
  4. Made the adjustments today. No more clunk when putting lateral load on the rear suspension! But..... the other clunk when I brake hard and then accelerate hard is still there. Guess I'll have to take it back to my guy and see if he can figure it out. I'm out of ideas.....
  5. You'll know BB. This is not a normal high performance suspension sound. It sounds like something is hitting metal on metal under the car. Like tapping the underbody of your car with a hammer kind of clunk. It took me a while to find out where it was making contact as I was looking in the wrong places. At the end of the day, it is a clearance issue if/when the watts link is either installed improperly or it shifted over time. I think my issue might be a little of both. The guy that installed mine may not have really known what he was doing. I quit using him soon thereafter and now I have access to a lift.
  6. Update: I had a chance to get under the car today. I found the driver side arm of the watts link has been making contact with my exhaust and the passenger side bolts for the watts link arm have been making contact with the underside of the body. Talked with Jim Fay and he believes the arms have moved since install and simply need to be adjusted. I agree with that assessment and will get the car on the lift in the next day or so to set the arm angles and the proper angle and distance from the diff. This should solve the issue although Jim did say he had heard the original shocks could be allowing the car to sag more than normal and if that is the case it is time to do the last suspension mod: Coil-overs!
  7. Clutch and flywheel problem

    I think it was after August of 2008 when they corrected the issue on all GT500's including the KR's.
  8. The Lobby

    I knew you would approve Keith and hope you are well. Have a great 4th everyone!
  9. The Lobby

    He is the guy who would always post what he was eating that day..... The Lobby. I might have chosen The Pub, but The Lobby works. Out for a drive this AM with a friend..... quite the spectacle.
  10. OK...…… New UCA installed and diff bushing. Clunk still present, but now I really have to crank the steering wheel hard left to right to get it to happen whereas before it was much easier to replicate the noise. I guess I'm going to have to call Mr. Fay again and figure this out.
  11. Finally got my car up on the rack and I think we found the problem of the clunking noise in the rear end. Fortunately, it has nothing to do with the Watts Link. The upper control arm is tired along with the differential bushing. Makes sense as that is the only thing I have not replaced and the rubber is cracked. New parts on order and I'll post up with the results after a spirited drive once the new UCA is installed.
  12. We can schedule whenever you guys want to go. Just let me know.
  13. 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.
  14. Posting rules

    I've been tracking the GT500 and Cobra from time to time. Although I don't think I'll put the GT500 back on track anymore. It's just too heavy and I tend to push the car pretty hard. Broke the carbon driveshaft coming out of the apex of turn 14 at CMP last year. I learned more from Grabber than anyone on this site. When I first bought the GT500, I was very displeased at how the car handled and the clutch feel. Reading all of Grabber's notes helped me determine the best ways to correct the behavior of the car. So now that you are around from time to time again, let me officially say thank you! Maybe you could provide one last bit of knowledge: After installing the Watts Link and over time, the rear of my car has developed a thunk/clunking noise when I throw it hard into a corner. I've checked my LCA bushings and they seem to be fine along with the Watts Link set up. I wonder if the UCA or possibly the rear shock tower needs to be checked? Hard to get up there without a lift and I have not had time to get to my guy lately. Thoughts O WISE ONE? From a previous thread, a lot of guys seem to be having the same issue, but no one had the solution. I talked to Mr. Fay as well and didn't get anywhere. Thanks in advance for your guidance!
  15. Posting rules

    Absolutely agree with you. I was only speculating as to what the moderators intentions are with the rules. Frankly, I come on here less and less these days due to lack of interesting topics and discussions. Or maybe I've just lost some interest with forums in general. Who knows...
