My 2008 gt500 just arrived today. And man is it a dream come true. But my question: the clutch feels light, a good light though. I've felt a gt500 before and it felt stuff and I've also heared they're stiff. Do you honk the previous owner did some type of upgrade? Thanks
I have a 2011 Shelby GT500 SVT/PP. I do not like the look (all the rotors and rear caliper) of the OEM brakes (Front Brembo ok!) and I’m looking to upgrade them. The brakes on this 2011 Shelby GT500 are: Four wheel power disc with four-channel anti-lock braking system (ABS), electronic brake force distribution (EBD) and traction control. * Front - Brembo 14-inch diameter vented discs, four-piston aluminum calipers. * Rear - 11.8-inch diameter vented discs, two-piston calipers. * Tires - Bridgestone Potenza RE960 P255/R35/20 * Rims - FOOSE 20” Legend SS rims all around. Ok, here goes… In reading all the posts and research I’ve done on my own – I see four (4) options (as price is not a factor). I’d like your feedback and your choice. Please choose 1, but especially please tell me why you made your choice. Performance Vs cost, Value Vs Performance etc. And if anyone has a better option – Please provide that too. ALL opinions are welcomed and if you have any personal experience with one of these options, I'd appreciate that feedback too. ***Option 1: Lowest Cost Shelby GT500 Four Piece Brake Rotor Upgrade Kit – Total Price: $1,279.00 http://www.shelbysto...7mk-2300-cw.htm Total Price: $1,279.00 ***Option 2: Medium Cost Shelby 14" Brembo Front Rotor Upgrade - Price: $716.67 http://www.shelbysto...-s7m-2300-c.htm Shelby 14" Rear Rotor Upgrade - Price: $661.12 http://www.shelbystore.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=Z28%2D2262019 Total Price: $1,377.79 ***Option 3: High Cost Shelby/ Wilwood Front 6-Piston Big Brake Kit - Price: $2,130.50 https://www.shelbyst...59-S5MK-2300-UF Shelby/ Wilwood Rear 4-Piston Big Brake Kit - Price: $2,031.89 https://www.shelbyst...59-S5MK-2300-UR Total Price: $4,162.39 ***Option 4: Most Cost Extreme+ Front Brake System for 2005-2012 Ford Mustang - Price: $3,395.00 http://baer.com/prod...tegory_id=15005 Extreme+ Rear Brake System for 2005-2012 Ford Mustang- Price: $3,595.00 http://baer.com/prod...tegory_id=15015 Total Price: $6,990.00
Hello team Shelby members. Well as my post says thanks for the last three years, what I meant by that is through clutch tsb's: 08-16-04, 09-19-11, and now 10-3-08, if you have gone to the largest dealer in the United States that is located in the San Fernando Valley area (with out being too specific) I wanted to say thanks as i have been the only tech there that has been doing all these tsb's for you guys. It has really been a pleasure. I have had face time with some of you, go on test drives, and meet some cool people in the process. But the point of me posting here is to give a heads up that I am no longer working at that location. I am going into business for myself and i would like to continue these relationships with you guys. Grant it now you can't come to me for warranty repairs but regular service and maintenance, upgrades, or aftermarket parts installs, I would be more than happy to help you and you can feel comfortable knowing that you have a factory trained tech still working on your vehicle. Again thanks for the last few years and hopefully see you soon. If anyone is interested in any type of services of contact info send me a message or ask in this post and ill be sure to get back as soon as possible. Thanks!
