  1. Great work Steve, nice to have this list updated and improved. One question, is the brake section referring to those of us who ordered the 6 piston extreme braking package? Thanks Doug 07XL0218
  2. Michelin Pilot Sport or Pirelli P-Zero.... If you widen your rear rims to 11", you can fit 305/30 20 tires without any problems. Weldcraft in Detroit can wdien the wheels for you. Good Luck Doug
  3. Very interesting pictures, they tell the complete story. The blower is the Ford Racing Whipple, therefore 605 HP. Also the car had a brake upgrade, 6 piston front and 4 piston rear which was about a $5000 option. So the car had the $12,650 40th package, a $6600 Ford Racing blower and then the brakes at approx $5000. The original owner went all out on the conversion.

  4. Weldcraft has done a bunch of razors in the last 3 or 4 years. I had mine done to 11", 3 years ago. Make sure you get them to machine the weld bead after, makes for a nicer finish. Doug 07XL0218
  5. There were 2 of us in Red Deer, but I think the other guy sold his, have not seen it for a year now. Mine is vista blue, SS'd to 605 HP with the extreme brake package. A couple of years ago there was a total of 4 vista blue 40ths all with SS options in Alberta that I knew of, the other 3 being in Calgary. There were a lot of 2007/08 Shelby 40th and SS modified cars here in Alberta, still are. Doug 07XL0218
  6. Most of the SS options were available, exceptions would be wheels and hood for sure. Like many others, I have HP and brakes added to the package. Doug 07XL0218
  7. I have my 40th, Super Snaked and insured with the rest of my vehicles via Dominion. I do have to maintain the 19a appraisal for the Shelby to keep it at a fair market value, in case of claims. I have 2 levels of coverage, sitting in the garage for 6 months with fire and theft, then full road insurance when I call for it in the Spring and decide to start driving the car. Doug 07XL0218
  8. http://www.tfxinternational.com/ They are out of the T.O. area These guys are pros, first rate trailers and tractors. They shipped my car to Shelby and back for the modifications. Doug 07XL0218
  9. This is supercharger info from the Eaton site, so if you have the 605 HP build, you should read this. The TVS R2300 is on the list under Corvette LS9. This also has the stock GT500 supercharger listed. http://www.eaton.com...perchargers/FAQ Doug 07XL0218
  10. Thanks for the links, I have been doing all the seasoning and bedding as per Baer recommendations but they are still rubbing a bit. The box that the brakes came in actually had the procedure in it, so I have been following the procedure using the same instructions you see on the Baer site. I have also tried driving a bit with the E brake thinking that it could also be causing the rub. Doug
  11. Yes, the rub started after the install. I had it out again and did 4 brake stand stops from 100+ mph and got the brakes smoking, seems to have helped. Back in town today and I will try some more if I still get some rubbing. Doug
  12. Just trying to break in the the extreme brakes I installed and after about 300 miles I am still noticing a rotational rub from the rear brakes only, when I turn a corner. I have been doing some 100% braking from 100 mph and the brakes respond great, but I am wondering about this rub after the brakes are warmed up. Any adivce? Doug 07XL0218
  13. People are not responding to this for whatever reason?? There are 5 Shelby modified cars and lots of stock GT500's that I know of just here in Red Deer. So we show only 5 cars in all of Alberta?? Cheers Doug 07XL0218
  14. I think Don is correct on the backspacing, Shelby shows it as 5.94" standard on the website, my paper work on the wheels does not say anything about the backspacing, but I am sure it was 5.??" so I will defer to Don's 6" (aka 5.94"). As you can see from the pictures in my earlier post I had no issues with the 6 piston extreme brakes on the rear of the car, so nothing to worry about there. Doug 07XL0218
  15. Read the Haggerty info, I do all of that BUT the starting every 2-4 weeks, I believe you are asking for moisture to accumulate in the oil and exhaust as the car does not get hot unless you drive it. I also add fuel conditioner to the full tank. and hook up a battery tender. I may start the car after 3 months, but not every Winter. It is parked in a heated garage and covered for up to 6 months. I am on my 4th Winter now and have had no issue's. Lots of other guys up here in Canada doing the same kind of storage, seems to work for all of us. Doug 07XL0218
