    My new Comp Orange '16 GT Premium - "The Peel"

    So let's get this out of the way: I'm insane. Ok good. I recently traded in my '14 Shelby with 800rwhp for a '16 GT Premium with an auto. I think way back when I even ragged on a guy on here for doing the same. Anyways, I drove the piss outta my Shelby and after nearly 20k miles I just needed a...

    Clutch issue I can't figure out

    After about 10k miles on my McLeod RXT, I noticed it slipping when I'd accelerate in higher gears. I'd go WOT and even just half throttle and RPMs would shoot up but the car didn't go anywhere. So i figured maybe the clutch was on it's way out. It still cruises around town and shifts just fine...

    '14 Shelby AKA The Hellby at NMRA Bradenton

    I posted up a few weeks ago about knocking out a 10.6 my second time ever at the track. Well some seat time sure helps! At NMRA this past weekend i was able to run some 10.0s and 10.1s. So close to 9s! I hope to hit up a test n tune soon on a "cool" night to get it. Though the good air may be...

    10.01 '14 Shelby PICS, VID and STORY inside

    For full disclosure here, I've been to the track 2 other times in my life. Both times were last year with this car at 700rwhp and street tires. :kaboom: Not an ideal combo for your first track experience. Spinning all the way down the track. I managed a 12.1 at 123ish. Fast forward to yesterday...

    My GT500 at Wannagofast 1/2 mile Florida

    Had a great time at the event this weekend! This was my first time doing a 1/2 mile and its definitely a different beast than the 1/4. VMP Tuning and Van Collier helped me out all weekend so big thanks to them. A lot of learning and a brutal crosswind on Saturday got me a best of 159. Then I...

    Forgestar CF5V on '14 GT500

    I posted up my drag pack a couple weeks ago. Decided i needed a new daily setup that would also be good for the half mile event in Ocala later this month. Decided on these Forgestar CF5Vs in 19x10 in rear and 19x9 up front. Very lightweight and the Piano Black finish looks awesome. It's not a...

    Tire Shop in New Orleans

    Figured i'd post in here as the regional threads tend to take forever for a response. I have a leak in one of my rear MPSS. Not sure how bad i just know it keeps losing air. I'm new to New Orleans and would like to find a reputable place to diagnose the issue and either fix it or help me with...

    True Detective season 2 starring.....

    Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn. I think the directing/writing could make them shine, but still a bit of an odd couple. I absolutely loved season 1 so hopefully season 2 lives up to the hype. What do you guys think?

    Foo Fighters' new album announced!

    New album 'Sonic Highways' is due November 10th! I expect this album to be a bit different than a straightforward rock album. Very excited for it as Foo Fighters have always been one of my favorite bands and Grohl is in my top 5 people i'd like to sit and have a beer with. Link below with all...

    Tony Stewart hits driver Kevin Ward in sprint car incident....

    Details and Stewart's intentions are sketchy/non-existent at this time. It sounds like the two got their cars tangled up in a race in up state NY, and then Ward got out of his car to confront Stewart and was struck by Stewart's car. Again, whether intentional or not, we don't know yet. Crazy...

    Fastest 20inch wheel and street tire Shelby?

    I'm bored. Kids are up early. So i got to thinking, what's the fastest 1/4 pass made with a 20in rear wheel in a Shelby? Also, what is the fastest pass made on a true street tire (not drag radial)in a Shelby?

    Dynatech Headers and Off Road X Pipe installed!

    Doing some cool things with the car in the coming weeks. The exhaust was finished today and i just wanted to say I'm very happy with how the new setup turned out. Gained some serious power and i am just in love with the raw sound. Somewhat tame but noticeable at idle and then the hounds of hell...

    13/14 Shelby spotted in Tampa....

    Anyone on here have a black/black 13/14 Shelby and cruise on North Dale Mabry often?? Seen this car a half dozen times and can hear an aftermarket exhaust on it. Nice car. Sounds sick. Just thought i'd see if it was anyone on here. Would post this in the Florida region forum but that's dead...
