Team Shelby Club 2019 Team Shelby Membership Kit Please note that membership contents are subject to change.   Team Shelby was designed and engineered by real enthusiasts inside and out of Shelby.   Team Shelby was originally formed in 2008 by Carroll Shelby. 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! Ownership of a Shelby is not required to be a member. The club is dedicated to serving all Shelby enthusiasts past and present including those that own cars built in the 1960's and Shelby Dodges too!

    Want 2020 GT500 performance now? This looks fun: https://www.motorcarsofjackson.com/2018-ford-mustang-shelby-gt350-hennessey-850-c-164.htm
  2. 1965 Shelby Backdraft Cobra

    I just got back from a spirited drive in my Backdraft Cobra..... you may regret selling it!
  3. 2020 GT500 news

    All those people who "gotta have it now"...… I patiently waited until 12/08 and picked up my '09 car (without clutch issues) for less than invoice and the dealership was so happy to make a sale at that point. We'll see what happens in the next few years on the new GT500's. Deals will be out there for those who wait.
  4. The New Shelby GT 500...........

    Probably the R... but would depend on your intended usage.
  5. The New Shelby GT 500...........

    I would have been very tempted to jump on that offer. And with one small change the front end looks correct now. If I bought one, I would absolutely special order it to have the front bumper color matched to the body... with stripes!
  6. The New Shelby GT 500...........

    Maybe.... but you can pick one up with less than 1000 miles for less than sticker rather easily.
  7. 2020 GT500 news

    Wait a couple of years and they'll fix the problems and lower ADM's. And paint the front bumper to color match the body of the car hopefully.

    And was one of the worst Superbowl's ever. What an awful game and it could be argued that neither team deserved to be there due to terrible play calls in the NFC and AFC championship games. Not that I care about any of these teams, but a Saints v Chiefs game would have been far more entertaining to watch.
  9. Converted GT to GT/SC or GT500

    To do the chassis/suspension properly you’re looking at about $5,000. Brakes add another $3000. Then you have the cost of install unless you plan to do it yourself.
  10. Not a good day for 07XL0305

    Someone grab the engine and recondition it for racing!
  11. Converted GT to GT/SC or GT500

    You can easily get massive power out of an 07-09 car with a few upgrades. Just do the brakes, chassis, and suspension upgrades first so the car doesn't wind up wrapped around a tree or something of that nature.
  12. How did you decide on GT500

    Appreciate the compliment. If you have any interest, I have been considering selling my '09 to a Shelby enthusiast so you can PM me for further discussion.
  13. 2020 GT500 news

    So..... functionality outweighs aesthetic appeal. Maybe if they color matched the front bumper to the car it would look better. Lots of sharp angles and the large mouth bass appearance for the front fascia. The rest of the car looks nice.
  14. How did you decide on GT500

    I have an '09 car so for what it is worth, the main difference between '07-'08 is I didn't have to deal with the clutch TSB problems as mine was built after August 2008 when they corrected the problem. With that said, my purchase was more nostalgic to my childhood dream of owning a 1966 GT350 and the throwback design of the original GT500. 10+ years later, I still get a kick out of driving mine. However, I had to do a TON of upgrades to get the car to handle, stop, and accelerate properly. You will want to find a low mileage car with the proper mods already completed and it will be worth the money to pay a little extra. The stock 2007 - 2009 GT500 is a wobbly pig. Here is the list of upgrades I did to my car: 2009 Shelby GT500: 524.8 HP/549.9 Ft. Lb. Torque at the wheels on SuperFlow AutoDyn 880E AWD Chassis Dyno – Estimated HP at crank to be 619 HP https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f6lOjDH9eP0 True Forged Chicane Wheels w/ Michelin Pilot Super Sport Tires: 275/30/20 Front and 285/30/20 Rear - Shelby/Wilwood Front and Rear Racing Brakes - Shelby GT500 Brake Duct Bezels/Front Brake Duct Kit - Ford Racing Ceramic Coated Shorty Headers - Shelby Oil Separator - Shelby GT500 Engine Coil Covers - Metco 2.6 pulley/idler w/JLT Cold Air Kit and SCT Tune - Shelby Billet Aluminum Racing Oil Pan - Shelby Extreme Duty Heat Exchanger - McLeod RXT Performance Twin Disc Clutch - PST Carbon Fiber Drive Shaft - Ford Racing Low Profile Differential Cover w/ over flow tank - Flowmaster Exhaust - Shelby Racing Front and Rear Sway Bars - Shelby Bumpsteer Tie Rod Adjuster - Shelby Sway Bar End Links - Shelby K-Member, Radiator Support, Chassis Support, A-Arms, A Arm Support Brace - Shelby Billet Aluminum Watts Link - Metco Billet Aluminum Rear Lower Control Arms - 2014 GT500 Upper Control Arm - Ford Racing Springs - Shelby Six Speed Shifter Lever w/ Shelby GT500 Shift Knob - Shelby GT500 Engine Billet Aluminum Cap Set - Shelby Hood Lift Kit - Shelby Billet Aluminum Racing Pedal and Dead Pedal Covers - Carbon fiber upgrades: Front Splitter, Rocker Panels, Rear Mud Guards, Rear Diffuser, Side View Mirror Inserts, Hood Vents, Door Sills, Speaker Rings, Center Console, Mirror Switch Covers, Door Lock Bezels, Radiator Now the car is one of the best handling GT500's you will find and I feel is a proper sports car. Good luck with your search.

    Facebook..... you won't ever catch me on there. Not to mention their questionable ethics... This is as close to social media as I get both professionally and personally.
