Hi guys, yes again it's been a while since I've posted here but trust me I plan to make more time on here compared to before.

So a couple years ago I got my 2013 Shelby GT500, car has been great and I enjoy driving it just as much as my Z06.

In the few years since I've done a few things, here is the car basically stock:

At one time I did get an extra set of 2013/14 Shelby base wheels and tires:

I used these wheels and tires to do 2 lapping days at Mosport. Sold the wheels and kept the tires.

I did up the rear suspension to Steeda stuff consisting of:

rear upper arm and mount
panhard bar and brace
billet alum. rear lower control arms.

I am also using 2 Enkei RPF1 18x10" wheels mounted with Hoosier DR's 315/30/18 for drag racing

This past winter the new mods I did consisted of:

Pulled old calipers off and had them powdercoated a copper colour and reinstalled with steel braided brake lines.

Car will be headed down to Daytona this winter for me to do a weekend lapping event on the Rolex course (it will be trailered down).

Looking forward to it.

Started losing some weight out of the front of this car. Added a Steeda lower rad support brace and removed the stock battery and box and replaced with a PC680 Odyssey battery. That so far has dropped about 27 lbs. off the front end of the car.

A switch to a lithium battery in the future will drop even more pounds from this mod.

Next phase is a aftk K member with possible frt lower control arms.................would like to get close to about a 60lbs. weight savings off the front.
