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!

  1. Things to look out for

    +1. I also add Seafoam to the gas.
  2. Additionally: the rear geometry of our cars are also off from the "lowering". You might look into getting the lower control arms relocated (weld kind) to flatten the tilted geometry. Launches will be more planted, and wheel hop greatly diminished. This will require a rear alignment as well, so something to consider while getting the front done. To finish correcting the geometry; the rear axle tends to shift to one side or another when lowered. My back end was 3/4 inch out. Just do a quick measure of your rear tire to wheel well lip on both sides to get an idea how far your rear end is out. This is corrected with an adjustable panhard bar, or if you really want the best; a Watts link. Do a search here for "Watts link" and "rear control arm relocation" for more info.
  3. The original 18mm ball joints are 1mm too small and wear fast. New ball joints/control arms from Ford are updated to the correct 19mm size, but only sold as a set. What you need is bumpsteer kit (tie rod ends) to correct the "lowered" geometry; to level the the compression angle to the proper position. And extended ball joints. https://www.americanmuscle.com/mustang-bumpsteer-kits-0510.html I also suggest doing a search here with "bumpsteer" for loads of info. This "upgrade" makes a huge difference in the handling. As for shops; I'd suggest someone who is more familiar with correcting the front geometry of your lowered car.
  4. GT-H Hood

    I love it when a car heals itself!
  5. Popping / clunk in front left

    Just an added note: when the SGT's were factory lowered, they didn't correct the geometry. So if you're making front end adjustments, a bumpsteer kit (tall tie-rod) is highly recommended to 'level' the struts, plus the stock ball joints are a mm too small (which can clunk). Had mine replaced a few years ago, noticeable difference in handling. Plus: the rear wasn't leveled either, so I had a lower control arm relocation bracket installed, again to flatten the geometry. No more wheel hop, squats now.
  6. The OEM pony on the steering wheel is a thin "metal" disk with sharp edges, so I feel safer with the soft vinyl dome in case the airbag deploys.
  7. 07 ShelbyGT hurst shifter

    The factory Hurst shifter in an SGT is "notchy", stiffer than a regular shifter. The only time mine got noticeably stiffer is when the throwback bearing was failing at 70K, and I had trouble slotting into gear. Hopefully, you're just not used to a tight Hurst shifter. Maybe someone else here can chime in about addressing lubrication, if needed.
  8. Dome vinyl sticker on the steering wheel, safer than the factory tin pony Sent a PM to the original poster with a link, at a much better price than the ebay items too.
  9. And then there's the steering wheel!
  10. SGT Sightings

    Passed a black SGT this morning on the way to work. Gave him a big wave from my SGT. He looked kinda stunned. Pretty rare car in Canada.
  11. FRPP Rear Shocks

    Maybe this will help some?
  12. 1968 Shelby Cobra

    Is it a rent-a-racer or a '68 GT350 sold to hertz for their rental fleet? Correct me if I'm wrong but didn't the rent-a-racer come out in '66 as a black GT350-H with gold stripes?
  13. This is what another member did with 10" matte stripes from AM, and painted the scoop (page 3-4 I think), for an additional choice. Personally, I have a stripe delete black SGT, and like the look.
  14. Standard black diamond mesh, flexed out to follow the curve of the opening, attached at the four corners. The letters are 1/16" aluminum, plasma cut, a little polishing, then glued on. Pretty easy. Check out my recommendations for lining up the letters in the above post.
  15. Date Night with the Shelby

    Nice light.
