    L1663, GT500 CFTP, the story

    Its professional auto body primer. Etchimg primer is mostly used for aluminum and stainless, but i find it is a very durable primer for most metals. Go to your auto body supply. Im sure you can get a rattle can. If you want some of the gasket material, I can send you some.

    L1663, GT500 CFTP, the story

    If it was me doing it, I would use an etching primer on exposed steel. If it was all rusty, then I would touch it lightly with sandpaper or dremel and then prime and paint. I wouldn't go nuts on the paint correction..... Ford paint and clear is pretty thin.

    Trying for 900whp.... need insight on mods.

    The shelby SE is getting geforce half shafts. I'm stock and I blew mine at the track. I understand why Shelby American is upgrading them with a HP bump.

    GT500 top speed test.

    If the car had enough real estate, it would exceed 200 MPH if there were no limiter (IMHO). If they build it to go faster than 200, they have to engineer it for that. They probably put a cap at 180 because anything more is not practical for what the car was intended for.

    The wing and the vent are FP. The rest? Not sure.

    I bought my hood from Lethal. It was drop shipped (no pun intended) from AC. It arrived damaged. I was told a claim would be submitted on my behalf...... (On my behalf, lol). AC's proposal to me was one of two options. Option 1 was that they would give me 10% off and I could keep the...

    I had a bad experience with AC as well. It took some serious arm twisting to get the problem sorted and my money back. My advice is steer clear of AC.

    2020 GT 500 Model Designation

    The reason our cars bear the Shelby name is because Ford gives Shelby American a boat load of money and support to use the name. Our cars are not Shelby's. They are Ford.

    Yes!! that's what I'm talking about!! Not many places in the country where us lowly mere mortals can take the car to the limiter.

    It seems to be a trend that these cars all have the snake stolen off the deck lid finish plate.

    It's like anything else that can kill you.... you have to respect it. These cars are an exercise in self control.

    The car was built to be a track car. If you are after top speed, then you will have to modify the vehicle for that purpose. Again there is a reason they put a limiter on the car.

    GT500 top speed test.

    A higher top speed means nothing if you can't achieve it. The 500 was not designed for all out top end on the autobahn. The car was designed to be a track car. Can any of you keyboard racers tell me where the 500 can achieve faster speeds on a US track? Some of you seem to be making this out...

    GT500 top speed test.

    ^^^^ The car was designed to be a track car, not a top end speed vehicle. The car is purpose built. You don't need to go faster and Ford didn't engineer it to do so. The previous 500 was not a purpose built track car, and at the time, top speed was an important metric.
