Hey guys, let me introduce myself. My name is Matthias (or just Matt to keep it simple) and i was originally born and raised in Germany. I just moved to the beautiful upstate of South Carolina about 1 1/2 Years ago due to a Job Oppurtinity my Company offered me to lead the Expansion of our Company to the North American Market. I am currently working as a Plant Manager for a Automotive Supplier focused on High Temperature Solutions for Exhaust Components. Mainly producing Parts for BMW´s X3 and X5 since their biggest Plant is here in Spartanburg,SC. New Customers like GM, Caterpillar and Chrysler already signed Contracts with us as well. However, even though i am German and should like BMW, Audi etc. (at least thats what everybody is saying but i couldnt care less) i ALWAYS had a soft spot for American Muscle Cars. I had a 94 Mustang GT with the good ´ol 5.0 V8 in prestine Showroom floor Condition and 20k miles on it back in Germany so i am not new to the Mustang world, but pretty new to the Shelby world. I just purchased a Bone Stock 2010 Shelby GT500 for $35K with exactly 20k Miles on it a little bit more than a month ago and enjoy every second with it !! I bought it from a Dealer in Vermont since it was such a great Deal and suffered the longest 1 1/2 Weeks in my Life waiting on my dream Car getting delivered while it was crossing around 1,000 Miles on a Trailer. Long Story short, the first time i cranked her up it was worth every penny and the pain of waiting. I never drove such a brutal Car before and even the wife loves it and buys me Parts .....gotta love that !! I know you guys like pictures so see below and tell me what you think..... Thanks !
I recently purchased my 2007 gt500 coupe, bone stock. Would u be willing to give me your suggestions on key upgrades? Here are some details to inform u: Missouri Will only drive on good weather days 15,000 miles on it Original tires, recently bought nitto NT555R 305/18 for rear and NT555 275/18 for front but have not put them on yet, hope they fit... Main complaint currently is wheel hop... (Hoping tires help, current tires are hard plastic, if not, thinking handling package next) Want to run street mainly but a couple strip drags will happen and I don't want to be embarrassed by anything other than my skill level if possible. Also weekend cruise nights with wife and kids. I want to push top speed and handle on hwy curves but not interested in track curves Dream is to run it at salt flats one day so really want to push top speed As for power, I want to boost it up, I feel that if I didn't have a supercharger already then I would buy the biggest and baddest, but since I already have one I am leaning toward getting most output for buck, unless u think a 6000.00 charger kit adding 200 or 250 hp is better than 1000.00 to 2000.00 in add-ons adding 100 or 150 hp??? I'm not knowledgable this is my preliminary perception thus far.. Appreciate your reading this, hope to hear back.
I have a stock 2007 GT500 and i havent gotten into to much engine mods yet, but i wanted to know what the best setup for tires is. I was wanting to try and keep the stock rims and just get tires, if at all possible. I want some good stuff but nothing that will break my bank. Looking for tires i can use to drive to and from the strip and use them to drag. I heard that M and H are pretty good, but overall i want some suggestions on brand and dimensions. Thanks, Brock
