  1. Warped Rotors Already?

    In general, actually "warped" rotors, were the metal itself deforms, are very, very rare; especially the monster rotors we have on the GT350. It would take serious heat - beyond normal track use -- to do that. It's more likely that you have uneven deposit of pad material on the rotor. One...
  2. So I think I will need to replace the motor | Currently at the Dealer

    Should we start a new thread that at least keeps track of how many engines have blown and what Ford did about it in each case? My bone stock 16 Tech pack is almost at 13,000 miles and you guys have me scared shitless. (And I already had the A/C failure). Can you imagine what Ford's going to...
  3. Air Conditioner Issues

    Exact same thing happened to me too. Ultimately, A/C would only blow out hot air. Just got it fixed. They said one of my hoses had a leak. A/C blows cold now.
  4. Possible Crash Cover Up: SHELBY GT350

    That's great, but just wait until your A/C fails -- like mine and many others. You won't like that about the car either. And be sure to check your oil level at every fuel stop -- this is the only car I've ever owned where you really have to heed that warning in the manual.
  5. GT350 flipped over

    Hey, let's all be happy the driver was uninjured. And, from the rear anyway, that the roof doesn't seem to have collapsed at all.
  6. Reputable dealer in S. Cal for oil-line recall work

    Had mine done at Galpin Ford. no problems -- just be sure to check your oil level afterwards. They get a lot of 350s and 350Rs in there, so they know what they're doing.
  7. GT350 AC Issue

    Add one more .. Had this problem a few months ago -- pre-oil line recall. Brought it in for service on that issue alone, but the A/C worked fine when I tried to replicate problem for the Advisor. I left it with dealer for 2 days and they still could not get it to replicate problem. A/C...
  8. Anyone else having problems with A/C blowing hot air -- full time?

    Had this problem a few months ago in my Shelby. Brought it in for service and the A/C worked fine when I tried to replicate problem for the Advisor. I left it with dealer for 2 days and they still could not get it to replicate problem. A/C worked fine for few months, but again today -- when...
  9. A good LA area dealer

    Galpin Ford in North Hills. They have plenty of experience dealing with GT350s, probably highest volume in state. I've had great experiences so far, including the oil cooler lines recall.
  10. Car completely dead

    Why not try jump starting it?
  11. gt350 transmission explosion / fire

    Also, assuming it was just tranny blowing, why the big fire? Trans fluid caught fire or did the pieces hit the oil lines/pan?
  12. gt350 transmission explosion / fire

    Where did OP get information that driver was shifting from 4th to 3rd? Does the driver say that on Facebook?
  13. 2015-2016 Tech Pack and Base GT350 Cooler Solution Discussion

    I'm sorry if this has already been made clear, but I can't really wade through the hundreds of posts on this, but: Did we ever learn exactly why the Tech transmissions are overheating - either on or off the track? I know the heat build up is triggering software limp mode to protect the...
  14. 2015-2016 Tech Pack and Base GT350 Cooler Solution Discussion

    Personally, I am thankful to people who post incredibly helpful information here, whether it's regarding the cooler solutions/installs or "real" information relating to lawyers and possible steps we Base and Tech chumps (who didn't realize Track vs. Tech meant "Track or No Track") can take to...
  15. Shelby Transmission Cooler Scoop Update!!!

    I just took my Shelby scoop off. Couldn't handle the increasingly-loud rattling. Only rattled when tranny was decelerating. I still haven't tried it on track though. It'd be great if it worked. I'll put it back on if we get more positive results.
  16. 2015-2016 Tech Pack and Base GT350 Cooler Solution Discussion

    We've all been over this hundreds of times over the past year. I wouldn't get back into it, except (1) we seem to have finally arrived at the point where it's now clear that Ford Performance' is, in fact, not going to come out with a reasonable cost fix for the problem, despite the many reports...
  17. 2015-2016 Tech Pack and Base GT350 Cooler Solution Discussion

    What car were you running at the HPDEs before the Shelby?
  18. 2015-2016 Tech Pack and Base GT350 Cooler Solution Discussion

    So, is Ford Performance going to be offering a complete bolt-on cooler set up (without having to buy a new tranny) or not? I thought they were getting close but haven't heard anything lately. And my Shelby Scoop is back to rattling like a giant kazoo again. It's coming off. And Steeda bar is...
  19. Any good ideas for cell phone mounting devices and locations on dash?

    simple, dumb, but maybe useful question. I've bought a couple but they don't stay mounted.
