  1. GT500 OEM Brake Pad Thickness

    Same kinda thing here! Our 500 has had 4 solid track days on it and my last pad measurement showed a hair over 9mm left...I knew pads on the GT/Mach 1 were 10mm thick when new and wasn't convinced the 500 pads had such minimal wear down. For perspective, I am using up about 1-2mm of brake pad...
  2. GT500 OEM Brake Pad Thickness

    Perfect - thank you very much!
  3. GT500 OEM Brake Pad Thickness

    Hi All, Does anyone happen to know what the new, unused brake pad material thickness of the OEM GT500 brake pad is (fronts in particular)? I failed to measure mine before the first track weekend and am trying to get an idea of what my mm burn rate is per track day on this car. Thanks!
  4. Handling Pack fender flares coming off

    I have been battling this issue after every track weekend - 99.9% of the time it is because pieces of tire rubber chunks from the track work its way into the crevasses of the fender lip where the fastener trim clip mounting holes stick out into the fender lining. Here is one of mine after I...
  5. GT500 vs Cayman GT4 Track Tested

    This is a great article and it is very accurate on just about all accounts. I can speak from experience regarding the CFTP GT500 vs. Cayman GT4. My last track event was in mid-October with the local PCA group. I brought our 20 CFTP GT500 out to this event and the three quickest car/driver...
  6. PPF/Ceramic Coatings on Mach 1 Stripes...?

    Adding a little personal experience to the thread. I did my own paint correction and ceramic coating on our Mach 1 with Carpro CQuartz 3.0. Obviously there is no need for paint correction on the decals or satin finished areas like the mirrors and spoiler. (Keep your clay bar away from the vinyl...
  7. Got our 2020 CFTP out to the track this weekend (MSR Houston)

    Hey all! The supercharger wine is exaggerated in the video. I am running dual mics into a gopro camera. One mic is mounted in the trunk, the other is mounted near the battery box. You can still hear the wine in the cabin, but at probably half of the volume perceived in the recording. I was...
  8. Got our 2020 CFTP out to the track this weekend (MSR Houston)

    Finally, we got a dry track weekend and a first true opportunity to really start pushing our 2020 GT500 around MSR Houston since we got it in December of last year (we attempted a track weekend in January with it that was OK, but it rained most of the time 👎). Since that time, I've been pretty...
  9. Mach 1 Ordering Update

    When did you place your order? We ordered the exact same configuration/color Aug 30, no build date as of yet. Not sure if ours got cancelled or not yet.
  10. Mach 1 Ordering Update

    I ended up ordering part M-6346612-GT, which is a complete factory kit. Shop around, some places have it much cheaper than others. I ordered mine from Lethal Performance. Regarding that warning light - I am aware of it, and my plan is to leave as much of the seatbelt system as I can alone...
  11. Mach 1 Ordering Update

    Just adding some information to the puzzle on the cancelled HP cars. I don't think many folks ordering HP cars opted for the factory rear seat delete, but I know for a fact that the ford rear seat delete is on backorder until at least the end of December. I ordered ford's rear seat delete for...
  12. Handling Package Spoiler clarification?

    I can confirm no drilling was required for mine! The GT500 spoiler mounted right up to the existing holes. Removing the sticky tape off the trunk with a heat gun from the original spoiler was the most difficult part.
  13. Mach 1 Track Attack Recap/Photos

    Nice!!! The Boss 302 trophy is awesome! The GT500 trophy is really impressive - it is a fully functional, brand new rear brake caliper off of a GT500 - pistons, seals, bleeders and all :shock: . I think my wife takes the win on that one...
  14. Mach 1 Track Attack Recap/Photos

    In our class, they were all blue.
  15. Mach 1 Track Attack Recap/Photos

    Yup we were in the same class! I recognize your silver Mach 1 in your photo that you drove to the school (sharp car by the way and it was nice to briefly meet you!). My wife and I were the ones from Houston that drove the Grey Mach 1 up there that had all the track miles on it. I did use 4th...
  16. Mach 1 Track Attack Recap/Photos

    I attended the Mach 1 track attack last week, which I understand was the fourth Mach 1 event to date. The experience was a lot of fun and got to meet some great people! The instructors and folks running the school are top notch. In my opinion, its worth the trip out to do it. As a side note -...
  17. Possible Door Corrosion

    So I got the car in today to get looked at. The dealer confirmed it is some kind of contamination/corrosion issue under the paint and documented it. They are going to take care of it thankfully. They won't start the work until I bring it back in a few weeks...it's going with us for a road trip...
  18. Possible Door Corrosion

    That's good to hear about the revised warranty wording - thanks. The points you bring up are the ones that have me scratching my head. I am pretty sure the door is steel, magnets stick to it (not as strong as on the trunk though). But, I am quite certain these bubbles were not here last time I...
  19. Possible Door Corrosion

    Hi All, I was giving the Mach 1 a deep detailing today and noticed what appears to be a small area of bubbling under the paint of the passenger door by the stripe. I regularly clean this car after track events and am 100% sure this was not here a month ago. Full disclaimer - as I just...
  20. Paint code for wing mirrors and rear spoiler?

    I can confirm that the color is Magnetic. Check out the thread I made a little while back when I swapped out the base spoiler with a GT500 spoiler. Magnetic is even noted on the spoiler I pulled off 👍. I'm sure each body shop is different, but the one I used determined it was a "level 4"...
