Put on a set of Michelin Pilot Super Spots to replace the original SC2's. I managed to get almost 3yrs and 12K miles out of the SC2's.
While I will miss the incredible grip of the SC2's, I won't miss the constant tramlining, especially on NY's lousy roads.

About to do the same thing. Although grip is a trade off, I am curious to you comparison on the street. Along with reduced tram lining, I would expect them to be quieter, longer lasting and better on wet roads (although I do not drive mine in the rain - Florida can catch you off guard). With more than half of my SC2's life remaining, they are beginning to slip a lot on a wet road.

Your right on the mark. I changed to PSS from SC2. Nice riding tire, good grip. Haven't had them on wet roads. Still tram lining but not as bad as SC2. I have Been very happy with them. Just my .02

Same here..
Sold the Cup 2's and put MPSS on within a month of purchasing it.
Why they put the cup2's on the 2019 non-R is still a mystery. Most guys will never see the track and are just getting their rear ends peppered with rocks, along with tramlining and drama on wet roads. Poor decision by Ford.

Tried to file a police report for hit and run....

No one wants to pick up the phone for me to report it because it's lapd...

Less than 15mph, rear end and I wasn't hurt so I guess I'll count this as lucky.
did you get a plate #?

how jacked up is your bumper / azz-end?

I got a plate and car description. Unfortunately because a visor was down the rear camera didn't catch it.

It's all been reported and I know enough people at lapd to get a real report taken. Sad you have to know someone to get an actual report done, but it's the times we live in.

The bumper is done tail pipe is crooked and the tail light doesn't line up, rear black panel is all scuffed.

Insurance is notified, now I just need to find a shop I can trust.

Replaced the stock Air Intake filter (Yellow) with the Air Raid Blue color match dry cleanable filter. I had some struggles with purchasing one that included a new clamp. The stock clamp had a metal strap which hooked into the rubberized portion of the filter. IT didn't fit properly on the new filter. After two failed attempts I ended up purchasing directly from Air Raid. Love the color match to the performance blue.

Added the chrome accent to the dead pedal cover which was just plain looking. I ordered a set of SRP Racing Pedals which included a dead pedal cover, so may switch it out to match the pedals. Anyone who has the stock pedals this is a nice touch.
Also added a new hood latch release lever. The stock plastic unit was uninspiring when opening the trunk. Just felt like it had a lot of flex in it. New billet aluminum unit feels solid and matches the pedal theme perfectly.

Cleaned up the Shelby inside the garage on a cold and rainy day using ONR. I had the cover off all winter so it collected a LOT of dust. Super easy with ONR and not a lot of water mess. Going to really enjoy it more once I get Swiss Trax Installed.

Put my Wheel Dollies away in storage for the summer. What a fantastic tool for moving your car around in the garage without having to start her up in the winter. I purchased a heavy duty set from Summit Racing and was not disappointed. Ended up purchasing the storage rack this past week to make it easier to store and transport.
If anyone is on the fence about spending the extra $ for a better set these are worth it.
I will also include a video that compares two different sets and the difference heavy duty casters make.

I finally completed the installation of an in dash switch for my Xeneering Auto Blip module for the Shelby. I wish they would have included an out of the box switch to turn the unit on/off, but after many conversations and a lot of help from guys on this forum I was able to get the switch installed. I previously had a cigarette lighter toggle switch plugged into the port in the center console. This was klunky as I didn't remove the center console to thread the wiring, but just had it running along side of the seat. Really love the clean (oemish) look of the toggle switch on the air temp sensor panel.
Also cleaned up and secured the master module in the glove box, so I had room for actual glove box things.
For me the decision to go with this unit vs trying to master heel/toe was based upon limited opportunities to practice on track at this point in my life. I plan on eventually getting it down, but for now it eliminates this step from my brain as I'm trying to figure out the 14 brake, turn in, apex, and track out phases at Road America.
The module is only practical for track use....
I am planning on installed an extended gas pedal from SRP racing which should help with heel/toe and practicing during spirited driving.

I will chime in here on the SRP setup as well. Loved working with Brian, he is so accommodating and even setup a phone call to discuss my needs/concerns. The heel plate attaches to the floor mat itself via a threaded unit on the back side. I am in the process of installing mine and will post a few pics of the install.
I've been working on my SRP Racing Pedals and heel plate project for a while.
I have completed a few pieces so far.
As requested by some of you on this thread-here is the heel plate install pics. The kit comes with a locking type nut/washer that grips the underside of the floor mat. Included is an oversize bolt which is used to seat the nut/washer on the underside of the mat and then you use the shorter bolt to secure it once the back piece is seated properly.

that switch looks great! I've thought about installing the Xeneering Auto Blip module myself for the same reasons, but wasn't sure how much of a pain it would be. How much work was it for you?

Got through NJ state inspection. Second time was a charm. Failed on the first try.
Reinstalled the factory tune, put the OEM the CAI, drive it all sorts of random speeds and distances for the drive cycle.

I actually like the car better now that it's back to its factory spec.

Finally resolved my issue w/ getting a second key FOB programmed. So first dealer couldn't figure out how to get their computer to connect to the car. Not sure how that was messed up. I plugged my obd2 scanner in and connected no problem. Took it to a different dealer and they could connect but it wouldn't detect the fobs in the cup holder slot. Since the car has an aftermarket stereo setup, I was figuring something was messed up under the console. When I looked closer I noticed there was a hole where it should be. Pulled the console and sure enough, it was just laying down amongst the wires and whatnot. Got it bolted back in place and after another trip to the dealer, I finally have two keys for the car.

And then I decided to take a picture after stopping for lunch.
