2020 gt500

  1. Racing
    Craziest track day to date for me! Eagles Canyon Raceway in TX hosted an Advanced Performance Driving Day at their track with 2 groups: orange & yellow for 5 sessions. I was placed in the top (yellow) group with 2 Porsches (a GT3 & a Turbo S). We had a ZO6 with us for the 1st session, but he...
  2. Non-Performance Modifications
    Spring has finally sprung in Wisconsin and the GT500 has awoken for the year (thank goodness). After a winter of forum reading and you tube watching ( thanks Goose ) I started to change a few items on my 2020 base model. First, added OEM Gurney flap. Installed Jaeger Bros front fender flaps...

    In this video, I take my 2020 Shelby GT500 Carbon Fiber Track Pack to the track (road course) for the first time. I booked this day awhile back. It turned out to be quite cold that day! I went ahead and did it... figuring what is the WORST that can happen with 760hp on summer track tires on a...
  4. Racing
    In this video, I start and end with a fun little highway pull and I take you along to see a track alignment performed on my 2020 Shelby GT500 Carbon Fiber Track Pack!
  5. Problems or Dealer Service
    In this short video, I show a trunk lid fitment issue with my 2020 Shelby GT500 CFTP resulting in paint getting removed. I show the problem and show the fix. This issue most likely affects all 2020+ GT500s: base and CFTP!
  6. DIY: Do It Yourself
    In this video, I get my 2020 Shelby GT500 Carbon Fiber Track Pack up on my lift and do a little front suspension disassembly to remove the factory pin screws in the adjustable camber plates to allow a track alignment. I show the step-by-step process to remove the screws in preparation for a...
  7. Maintenance
    In this video, I show how to change the oil on the 2020 GT500, how to deal with the cartridge style oil filter, how to reset the oil life counter as well as a bonus of making my low CFTP compatible with my 2-post lift!
  8. Problems or Dealer Service
    In this video, I disassemble my 2020 Shelby GT500 CFTP wing and mounts to discover a problem affecting the track pack cars. These cars have an issue where water is being trapped against bare metal. If this isn't corrected, corrosion will result. I show my solution to this looming problem...
  9. Pics and Vids
    In this video, I trailer my brand spanking new Rapid Red 2020 Shelby GT500 Carbon Fiber Track Pack to the paint protection film, ceramic coating and window tint shop. We see their process during some gratuitous car porn set to music! I hope you enjoy... lots of time went into editing this video!
  10. Parts For Sale/Wanted
    I've seen a guy that has a JLT on his Bullitt and uses the 2020 GT500 airbox cover to help keep the IAT temps down. Let me know if you want to sell yours please!!

    In this video, we have a look at the ordering process, terms, codes & timeline. This covers what to expect as well as the difference between the base model and the Carbon Fiber Track Pack. I explain my drop ship agreement and how I avoided additional shipping charges. We see my actual car going...
  12. Wheels & Tires
    Looking for recommendations on the best drag radial tire and size for the stock 2020 GT500 non-carbon wheels. We are looking closely on the Mickey Thompson ET Street S/S, but the largest size is P305/35R20 which is about 0.8" narrower than the 325/30/20 that comes stock... All suggestions are...

    I went on my first road trip with the 2020 this weekend... we had a 19 Mustang cruise and had an absolute BLAST! I did quite a few high-speed pulls and the front of the car was left splattered with bugs when I got it back home. I did an exterior detail job on video last night and showed a handy...
  14. Pics and Vids
    My oldest son and I had a lot of fun making this video today. I explain the differences between my 2011 with the Ford Racing 750hp 2.9L Whipple kit and my stock 760hp 2020! I then take both cars out for identical spirited runs! ?
  15. Pics and Vids
    I took my 2020 GT500 out yesterday and filmed this video. I start in the garage with a little walk around and then get the car outside to talk about the engine bay as well as the electronic dash/drive modes and features inside the cabin. After discussing features of the 2020, I hit the road to...
  16. DIY: Do It Yourself
    The 2020 GT500s have been arriving with an assembly line flaw. There is a heater hose that gets misaligned during the car/engine mating step resulting in the hose getting pinched. It gets stuck on some rather sharp bits and it’s only a matter of time until the hose gets damaged enough to leak...

    Youtuber Speed Phenom posted another video. He put his base model car on a scale. The video also has some good driving footage. The sounds that come from the 2020 are crazy awesome!
