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!

  1. The New Shelby GT 500...........

    Anyone see good pictures of one without the track package? I’m thinking it will look better then the huge wing on the back.
  2. Please keep me updated I will certainly jump in if all checks out!!! Thank you for taking the lead on this!!
  3. 2020 GT500 news

    I agree 100%, I can care less if I put it in drive with a dial or a lever, what’s the difference? Some Super Cars have buttons. This is not the “Shifter”, that is just a mechanism to put it in Drive. It’s not like the old levers that we’re used to powershift, as Secondo explains that is done with the steering wheel, that is MUCH better then the old school way in my opinion.
  4. The New Shelby GT 500...........

    7 Speed Dual Clutch. Can’t wait to see it!!!
  5. 2020 GT500 news

    No pictures yet, but they do have some really good colors coming according to what I read. A green, blue, red, and orange.
  6. The New Shelby GT 500...........

    Agreed who in their right mind would want more then this? It’s already crazy.
  7. The New Shelby GT 500...........

    This car is a Game Changer!!! Finally a DCT, hopefully it’s close to the performance of the Porsche PDK. I’ve been a Manual only guy for many years, then I went to a Porsche Driving school and drove the PDK, to me it has all of the advantages of the Manual and lacks the disadvantages of the automatic. I can not wait to see this car at the NY Auto-Show. My guess is it starts at $69-79K, I’m hoping $69K and then a well optioned one will be $79K or so.
  8. 2020 GT500 news

    Looks really nice, I’m very curious what the price will be, and I hope they give an option for wheels that aren’t black.
  9. Curb Rash and dents for $5K???? Jim I would imagine they have to be 20" for that price, but who knows. Holy shnikees I guess I should've kept mine, better return then the stock market the past few years.
  10. What SC setup is now available

    I have 275's on the back, to be honest I really do not beat on my car so I am sure I would get better if I practiced, but I do not see the point I only drive on public roads. I do love taking on ramps in 3rd or a quick down shift to pass someone, but I do not take off from a stop at full speed ever. Most of the time I see people doing that I think they are Ass Clowns.
  11. Time Capsule Shelby

    I would say he is about $10K too high, but if you look at his website it appears most of his cars are overpriced.
  12. What SC setup is now available

    I agree Swede, from a stop I have a very difficult time, I don’t race so it doesn’t bother me, but I could see it bothering some.
  13. What SC setup is now available

    I think 4.10 gears would suck for sure, it’s already crazy power with stock gearing (3.55 if I recall), I couldn’t imagine having 4.10’s. I do agree from a dead stop the Whipple can be difficult, but from a roll it’s a beast and that’s more real world unless you drag race. On ramps are awesome, same with downshifting to pass someone.
  14. Horsepower of 2008 Shelby Mustang GTSC

    I would guess around 400-425, the Automatic made a good amount less then the manual if I recall correctly. My Whipple 550 produced 496 RWHP, but Tasca said that was one of highest they had installed, they said the aftermarket drive shaft may have helped slightly. I remember the KB was slightly lower on average then the Whipple and the Paxton lower then that.
  15. What SC setup is now available

    Whipple is the best one ☝️ 👍👍😉😉 All of them totally transform the car, good luck!!!
  16. Worth of a GT350 non-supercharged

    Congrats!!!! Very nice car, great deal also in my opinion.
  17. I am hoping someone can help me out, I brought my car in for its yearly oil change/inspection and I am also finally getting the airbag recalls complete. While doing the inspection they said they noticed the Front Ball Joints were a little loose and they said it would be $1150 to change them because you have to change the ball joints and control arms at the same time. I told them not to do anything and to skip the inspection. Here is my question, does this make sense for a car with 23K miles? Maybe the age of the car has something to do with it? One more question if I am going to replace them is this an opportunity to upgrade? I am not an expert by any means as far as this is concerned. I am debating taking the car to Tasca so I can get this done, I also have a Watts Link that needs to be installed so they could do that as well, Tasca has done everything to my car besides yearly oil changes, I trust them more then my local dealer. Any advice or information you could provide would be appreciated. Thank you!!!
  18. Thank you Steve!!! It is odd that this claim is coming at 23K miles. They also did my inspection last year, which was only 500 miles ago, and found nothing. But that inspection did not include the timely airbag recall.
  19. What is the value of my 2007 Shelby GT

    Great point Steve, scratch my idea, with the CSM # I’m not sure anyone would buy it. It should go with the car. Mine doesn’t have the CSM #, I don’t know how I didn’t recognize that in the picture.
  20. What is the value of my 2007 Shelby GT

    I’ve heard the airbag covers actually do well on E-Bay, but this website should do well for you too. I’m not sure what they go for, at one point it was $1000 or so. I did the same thing you did, I have an airbag cover signed in my office drawer for the past 8 years or so, the only difference is mine is the darker color that looks somewhat like carbon fiber.
  21. That is exactly the information I was looking for!!! I am so thankful I told them not to do the repair, I knew this forum would be able to steer me in a better direction. I got the car back today, at least I finally got the Airbags completed. It will be stored for the winter and I will deal with this in the spring so I have plenty of time to research above. Thank you BlackSGT for the information!!!!
  22. What is the value of my 2007 Shelby GT

    My guess based on mileage is around $18-20K, not bad for a 11 year old car with 86K miles, depending on the deal you got when you bought it that is over 50% of the value, significantly higher then most cars of similar age and mileage. I agree with Jeff about the Mods, some buyers will actually count that against the value, it is all about finding the right buyer. I would sell the Airbag separately, I do not see you getting more for the car because of it. Good luck with the sale!!!
  23. 07 GT/SC conversion promotions

    Great offer Steve!!! Very thoughtful of you.
