  1. None of you are responsible for the lack of participation on this site. As the new site is being built, this one has been neglected for obvious reasons. The only sites I see thrive only do so because of intense effort by the site owners. They engage in announcements, news (mostly regurgitated) and send notifications via email. Team Shelby has moved to social media for those things for better or for worse depending on your point of view. I understand the detractors on this thread as well as the regular posters here. You both have valid points. In this age of being unreasonable, sit back for a minute and think how and why there are battle lines drawn here. Nothing is going to change in the short term. I appreciate those of you who like all cars. But this has become somewhat of a C8 worship thread. A little over the top for me. On the other hand, I just dont come in here anymore unless someone reports something. I was supposed to be at the Bash this week. I am highly disappointed. Instead, I am back and forth at work, transporting sick patients to the hospital all with flu like symptoms. This is not important as life goes
  2. I would add, SAAC and Team Shelby have more and more been working together to put on high quality events. If you would like to talk, send me a PM and I would be happy to have a conversation about Team Shelby from a regional perspective
  3. BOP is not the problem. Its the people behind the BOP who are either really dumb or, manipulate the results. I love IMSA but they are killing it. And, If you cant compete, why show up?
  4. OK, please tell my you are not surprised. There is a Reason KOHR switched from Mustang to Aston Martin. BOP is a disaster for IMSA
  5. If anyone has any questions about the track, please let me know. The survival guide is out and it is extensive. Please read it and help the committee provide you the best experience we can
  6. Agreed, The Mustang is not to compete with the Corvette. That's th Ford GT although, dont think we will see them much longer
  7. I dont have the heart to watch IMSA this year. I have seen to much manipulation which appears to me to have the sanctioning body choose winners. Seems racing all over is that way. When people start to realize their brand or their driver cant win, people will walk away from the sport (already seeing this) And for you no Cheeseheads Green Bay Packers lead series 36-32-1
  8. They have a specific test they do. They will change the oil and seal the system. Drive it 500 miles and they check again. If it exceeds the limit you get a new 19/20 Gen 2 engine
  9. Kohr Motorsports announced they are running Austin Martin for IMSA this year. Apparently, IMSA is not interested in any Ford competing in their races. The Mustangs were rendered uncompetitive and Im sure the Ford GT was as well. Politics in racing
  10. Somehow lost power obviously. The fact it clicked makes it sound battery related even with the jump
  11. If you have never been, here is an article about last year https://driveline-mag.com/2019/11/25/a-look-inside-the-2019-shelby-bash/
  12. Tires are a bit limited on the car. Think the 4s tires would work well. I have RE 71s and I like those
  13. They had some great sales on 305's but I think they are over. The PP cars used 305 square but those are R compound tires. My R uses 305s front, 315 rear
  14. I didn't call anyone out. It was a general comment to the group. I felt comfortable coming in here before. Something has changed and I would like some to reflect on that
  15. Keith, Not to defend childish comments but since coming back I notice, any comment about the C8 the collective group here deems as negative Is quickly either ignored, dismissed or attacked as idiotic. Posts meant to be interactive are quickly attacked and conversation shut down by making the person not want to come back here. Nowhere has anyone said the C8 is not a great vehicle. But you wouldn't think so from some of the responses
  16. Its like buying a raptor as a road course car. The GT350's heritage has always been a road course car as you well know. The GT500 was the street brawler and drag racer. Now, the GT500 does both. The coyote is better suited for drag racing, The 18 350 shouldn't feel a lot better then your 16 since they are the same, My 19 R does feel beter but there are GT500 components on the 19/20 but, I cant say they are the reason for a different feel
  17. Porsche guy misses a lot of lines, Shelby driver is not smooth. I realize its his first time in the car, Funny, He said the 350R had better corner speeds. Not bad for a slow car
  18. I can dig it up later but, that is the 350, not a 500. I also used one in the race car and caught a lot of oil. Bot are run hard. I dont think its needed for a street machine
  19. Done. But you are missing my point. There is no attempt on my part to put down the C8, What I am saying is, at the base level, all these pre production numbers dont add up. Its all hyperbole until it actually shows up. I mention a 350 on a road course and I get 0-60 times and 1/4 mile times thrown back. All of us know that's not what a 350 is designed to do. Comparing one car to another is natural. Brand competition is natural. While I get you are all excited by the C8, can we let a little realism set in?
