Here is a video for you guys to watch. Tires took about 3 laps to warm up then they started to feel better but need stickier ones for best performance. The car handle great, a ton of power not able to use through the corners but if you had different tires it would make a big difference. I left the traction control on and drove the track had no problem with it, then turned it off and checked it to see the difference and got a little loose in corners. Again I think if I had a set of racing tires then you could utilize the power that the car has specialy through the corners. The straight aways, there wasn't a car that could compete it just flew. Top speeds of 135 mph. Ran out of track for more speed.

Excellent video. I got one coming - same color as yours - and this only makes the waiting even harder. Must have been a lot of fun.

Thanks everyone I had a blast. I left the TCS on the first time I went through the course and then turned it off second time. I found out that it worked better on because of the conditions one being that the stock tires weren't the best tires for the job in the corners and plus the amount of horsepower that the car has:D . As you can see in the video there wasn't much competition that could touch the car in the straight aways. I had the car up to 135 :eek: and it drove like a dream. I turned the Koni shocks up to the firmest position so that I would ride like a rail through the turns and it performed great.

Very nice video... I like the part of passing the Porsche, here at work one of the Engineers just purchased a 2007 Porsche Cayman and 2 days later started talking smack to his group he works with how great his car is and he could but it on my Shelby. So once I get some miles on the new gears we are going the local drag strip which is about 50 minutes away and have it out. Was going to wait for the pulley change but without slicks it will be hard enough to keep it from spinning so will do it with the mods I have. The bottom line is he spent 60K for his and I spent 45K so the way I see it I still won :)

When the day comes I will make sure I have someone video and post it up :)
