Not yet, literally picked the car up this last weekend. Plan was for me to get one more track weekend in before year end when I was in my previous car. For the GT500, I want to get PPF on the front end first before I take it out. Aiming for Barber in November though.

Thanks for the welcome and I'll be sure to start posting some more.

Smart getting it protected before taking it to the track. If you’ll be hitting the road course somewhat frequently, consider switching to the SC2 tires. The 4S tires are excellent, but the SC2s are next level.

Thanks for the advice, I plan to once I burn through these. I ran Nitto NT01s on my previous track cars...so in stock form the GT500 will feel slow through the corners.

Welcome to the forum! Thanks for introducing yourself and showing us your Shelby! Kona Blue and the Brembo red look soooo damn sexy together! :love:

Have you had the 500 long enough to compare/contrast from your GT350?

Hi Tim,
We have chatted a few times on other forums. Love your videos. I used one of them to help me install the oil/air separator on my 2020! I've owned a 2018 GT350 which I sold to buy a 2020 GT500. Just sold the 2020 and have a 2021 on order. Build date is Oct 23, 2020. Currently going through withdrawals....lol. Attached are pics of the 2018 and the 2020.

Welcome new members. This is a great, fun site that has a wealth of information on GT500s from 2007-2014 and 2020+!

Please introduce yourself, tell us where you're from and post some pictures.

Here is an informative thread how to navigate around this forum. It explains things like posting pictures:


There is a nice DIY section that is filled with member's post of work they have done to their rides:

DIY: Do It Yourself

Use the blue button in the upper right to be taken to the latest discussions across all of the sub-forums.

Please remember to use the 'QUOTE' button below a post when you respond, it notifies that member that you have commented on their post, especially if asking a question. You can also send an alert to a member to get their attention by putting an “@“ in front of their screen name.

So come on in, learn, share, have a ton of fun and please no bad attitudes. We've got a more seasoned fun crowd here and we love talking GT500s/Mustangs!:)

Tim,
Luckily, I have a friend that is friends with the General Mgr of our local Ford dealership. He called me to let me know the dealership recently got another 2021 allocation. Always offers me MSRP. I drove to our local Honda dealership and sold my base 2020 with $7K miles to them for $85K. Still surprised how much they gave me. MSRP on the 2021 is $81835. Only have to pay $3K extra in RI sales taxes for a new model. Couldn't resist. Ordered everything exactly the same...lol. By the way, the Honda dealership ended up sending the 2020 to auction. Sales mgr called me to tell me they sold it for $86K. He laughed and said he made $10 after auction fees but was relieved they didn't take a loss.
Rick

Hey Goose! Love your videos. Honestly, I did not think I would find another vehicle that would drive like the GT350 (I was absolutely taken by the handling of that car), but the GT500 handles and has the power to do incredible things - another level of love - lol.
