  1. She’s back 😳Reunited with GT500 I sold

    Congrats on your business recovering and getting your 500 back!
  2. 2020 Shelby GT500 CFTP EPIC-Chaos Track Day in 4K! (video)

    Thank you kindly! I joke that those Miatas don’t need brake pedals… you hear them just winding through the turns. A tight track will favor those little go carts. The 1.3 side of Cresson is tight/technical. The 1.7 side is more suited for heavy high-horsepower bruisers like the GT500. I still...
  3. 2020 Shelby GT500 CFTP EPIC-Chaos Track Day in 4K! (video)

    In this crazy video, I burn serious gas and rubber in my 760hp CFTP GT500 beast on the MSR Cresson TX tracks! Prior to this day, I have never been completely off track. I run a new track configuration and it shows with me going 4-wheel’n off track THREE times! Tires nearing their end don't help...
  4. New 2021 GT500 (PL1SKEN) - 1st ever Mustang - DCT vs Manual impression - Braselton, Ga.

    Fantastic! Congratulations! If you really want to be blown away, take it to the track (road course)… these things are track monsters!
  5. Trailer a GT500 CFTP

    If possible, remove the splitter. That will make it much easier. I trailer my CFTP, but my trailer and race ramps all work with the car. I think you’ll have issues with the Uhaul.
  6. Carbon Fiber Wheel Tire Change WITHOUT Damage! (How To) video

    Went to them today. I had them pull a tire off wheel A and put it on wheel B and then put a different tire on wheel A. The owner of the shop did the work. They don’t use the Hunter machine much, so there was some learning going on again, but in the end, it was all a success!
  7. How to repair exposed carbon fiber wheels.

    I am that “other member.” When speaking with Carbon Revolutions, the rep said any barrel damage is not a strength/structural issue like damaging a spoke. It’s really just a pressure sealing issue. You could always try to seal it yourself. My damage was more significant. I chose to leave it to a...
  8. How to repair exposed carbon fiber wheels.

    Very impressive Tom! I never bought into the fear and aluminum wheel switcharoo. I drive my car like I stole it at the track and on the street. I treat my CF wheels just like my aluminum wheels in that I avoid pot holes, debris and curbs. The only thing I do differently with the CF wheels is...
  9. Carbon Fiber Wheel Tire Change WITHOUT Damage! (How To) video

    I’m going to them tomorrow to take a tire off one rim, put it on another (the repaired rim) and put a tire back on the first rim. This is to realign my 2 sets of track wheels with their tires… I have a track day this weekend!
  10. Fun "AF" Mustang Cruise with 2020 Shelby GT500 CFTP! (video)

    Epic Mustang Cruise with 7 cameras, 2 Boss 302s, 5 Shelbys & 17 BAD ASS Mustangs out having some fun shenanigans set to music and filmed in 360! No animals were harmed (true) and no laws were broken while filming this video. I hope you all enjoy as this sucker took a crap ton of time to edit...
  11. Carbon Fiber Wheel Tire Change WITHOUT Damage! (How To) video

    Excellent! That is what I suspected... thanks for confirming. My only concern would be how well the tape stays in place when sticking to the rough heat shielding on the front wheels. I guess there is only one way to find out!
  12. Carbon Fiber Wheel Tire Change WITHOUT Damage! (How To) video

    Weights removed, spun to check balance and new weights applied. :crackup: I had my PPF/ceramic shop do all the wheels. They use an airbrush and spray quartz on everything. The heat liner does not get buffed. When I got the wheel back from getting repaired, I used Adam’s wheel ceramic and a...
  13. Carbon Fiber Wheel Tire Change WITHOUT Damage! (How To) video

    Good info, thanks Tony! Can you explain this aluminum tape thing more…? Haven’t heard of it.
  14. Carbon Fiber Wheel Tire Change WITHOUT Damage! (How To) video

    In this video, I show 3 different experiences I had changing tires on my 2020 Shelby GT500 CFTP carbon fiber wheels. I tried 3 different shops and had some nervous moments with these $6,000 wheels. The last shop turned out to be the best option, with the best machine. This video is to show...
  15. 2020 Shelby GT500 CFTP damaged carbon fiber wheel + repair process! (video)

    This is what one of my front barrels look like after a track day. Ignore the grass… not sure how that got there. :giggle:
  16. 2020 Shelby GT500 CFTP damaged carbon fiber wheel + repair process! (video)

    I don’t know about steam cleaning either. I ceramic coated all 3 sets of my wheels when they were new. That’s what I’d recommend. If you didn’t do that, proceed with caution so you don’t ruin expensive wheels.
  17. 2020 Shelby GT500 CFTP damaged carbon fiber wheel + repair process! (video)

    The front brakes on the new 500 are absolutely MASSIVE! There isn’t much clearance between the calipers, which can literally get smoking hot at the track, and the inner wheel barrel. This is what necessitated the heat shield. I have my wheels coated in quartz, including the heat shielding...
  18. 2020 Shelby GT500 CFTP damaged carbon fiber wheel + repair process! (video)

    Thank you sir! 🍻 My experience at repairing carbon fiber… ZERO! My planned usage of this wheel…. the track! My confidence in tracking a wheel that I repaired…. .0001%. Happy that a professional did his thing on the wheel…. Yuppers!
