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!

What year and what colour is the one you really like Doc?

White with blue stripes, as all Shelbys should be.  2007, I think, might've been an '08.  Either of those years I'm looking at.

Awesome Doc.....07 and some 08's make sure the clutch and flywheels were serviced especially the 07...there was issues with the lack

of grease where now not really sure but it happened to my 07 right after I bought it...there's a thread on here about that or at least there

was back then and it was posted by "GRABBER"....he was a long time member here don't know if he's still around much anymore.

I would hope that after 10 years, it has been, unless it's just been parked.  If the owner doesn't know, then I'll just move on.

The 07 problem was the clearance on the clutch to input shaft  spline was two tight so the clutch would hang up & not totally engage at times Ford caught it early 08 &  applied grease & I believe more clearance to the spline on the clutch & new steel flywheel. They came out with a third version late in 08 not sure  what the change was. But Grabber knows all about all problems.. The fix cost was $6 K paid by Ford . I still have pictures of my repair , it meant tearing down the tranny to replace the input shaft .

Yeah it should have been but it could be a very low mile car and hadn't been checked yet....I believe there has been a TSB put out

and I'm sure that could be searched through one of your local Ford dealers...just a heads up bud.

Thanks Jim that's what I was talking about....I never got pictures of mine they picked up the car and the work got done TWICE actually...this clutch

grease clearance thing and then my flywheel...all covered under warranty of course.

Doc the '07-'09's are similar. The 2010's have the updated body but same engine, you might be able to find a reasonably priced one of those with the updated clutch and flywheel assembly already installed from the factory.

Also, FYI the '07s have the Ford GT style very heavy harmonic balancer that should be changed out to the '08-up Ford replacement or risk breaking the end of the crankshaft. I have an installation kit I put together in case someone has an '07 and wants to change it.

Wasn't aware of this harmonic balancer thing but good to know this Sean.

Hey Keefer, sorry I couldn't get back sooner to say that's a pretty cool "Big Boy Toy" you have, and you were even able to push a little more H.P. out of it!  That's pretty cool too!  :yup::cool:

Keefer,  I saw that you guys were posting about the (clutch & flywheel) problems that the Mustang GT 500 were having relating back to I think was 07 to early 09.  A couple of days ago on one of the posting Mach1 1970 Alias (Slow Lane) was referring to and posting about this same subject matter, and I found it very informative.   He has in the past owned a 2008 GT 500 KR so he definitely knows what he's talking about.  I think you guys that are interested in this subject should check it out!!!:thumbsup:

Later!

I have an 07.  Best thing to do if the clutch needs replacing is replace with an McCleod RXT clutch kit.

 

The pedal pressure is less and can handle more abuse and power.

That would be the best thing to do especially when adding more power as you did Jimmer.

Hmm, maybe I'll look at some '09s if the problems were all addressed by then.
