out ran 2 new Shelby's!! One at mid Ohio race track. I was just as fast down the back stretch and way faster in the turns. And one on the highway Rt71. Seems once rolling 70mph the zl1 cars are faster! If you know a guy with a red and black Shelby Gt 500 tell him thank you for the challenge! It was very fun!

So you were at Mid-Ohio? I was there... I didnt see any "other" new Shelbys there. There was one, a 2014... it wasnt red and black... and you didnt beat it. I did see the 08 blue/white convertible. Didn't notice the red one that I can recall but I know there were no other new ones (13+). I didn't stick around for the drive the track.

I was there doing a track day with autointrest last Monday not for the Camaro/mustang thing this past weekend. Planed to be there but had to work. And yes I past this car on more than one occasion that day.

Looked like a new one to me sorry I don't know my mustangs. And the red and black one looked like this as well. Found him on the highway I pulled him by about 2 cars before we both let off at about 135ish

Car has been data logged during normal driving and track driving. It runs a little rich with the mods I have. Nothing that is going to damage the motor. not even a hint of knock retard.

Oh, my mistake!

That is 10-12 GT500... Not one of the 662hp ones. Dead give away is the grille. The "new" ones 13+ have an open grille.

I agree, you'd take the car pictured no problem. . The ZL1 and the new GT500 are pretty even matched. In all out track racing, the Z does still have the edge due to its superior braking and larger tires.

Light to light or a highway run... You'll probably see tail lights but it would still be pretty close, especially with your mods.


As far as a tune... Sounds like you're safe. Rich is better than lean BUT tuning helps power and more so the driveability of the car. A dyno tune will really wake it up.

Tomster has done one and is in the works on another.

I am too busy to chase down the guy that is supposed to be getting me more information on a day for us at mid-ohio. I wish my contact Chris still worked with there

Any Clevelanders going to this show in North Olmsted?

http://www.cleveland.com/north-olmst...hters_set.html

I've never had my car in one of these before, but my friend from work is going with his Mustang and a few other people, so I might check it out.

Hi guys! Been a while since I've posted but I just want to say how glad I am I didn't wait for a 6th gen if it's going to end up looking like the Transformers 4 Bumblebee...

Hope all is well with everyone - cruise on down/over/up to Lofino's in Beavercreek if you're out and about on a Friday night :-)
