It’s quite an interesting change from my other three older S-197’s, that’s for sure. 

It’s funny, I made an observation yesterday that I’d not really noticed before. When backing out of my driveway with the wheel cramped all the way to the stops, to avoid dragging the splitter on the rolled curb, the car is so incredibly rigid that it feels like one of the rear wheels literally lifts off the ground 

I’ve only ever witnessed 911’s do this. This car is so far advanced over its predecessor.

I also find it curious that the new 500 appears to be getting a grille snake like my mod...right in the center of the grille this time. 

Sorta gives me solace knowing I did the right thing. :blush:

The other upside is if you ever get a dent or scratch and repair it, the primer won’t show very much……….:)

I haven't had the chance to drive the 2016 Shelby GT350 w/Track Pack but I'm sure it's a lot more rigid than the S-197s.   The lowering of these cars definitly helps in the handling dept. but what I don't like is the worrying about scraping or damaging the very low splitter in front! Enjoy your new toy, I'm sure it is a absolute blast to drive vigorously!

Thanks Goose! It is indeed. The car will be two years old in June.  I really haven’t driven it a whole lot. At first I was scared about blowing the oil hose that’s on recall. Then I figured, screw it! So just since I drove her over from California here to my place in Az. did I really begin to have fun with it! Changed the oil myself and started driving it!
