2007 Mustang GT500 Clutch Slipping

I do not have the TRANSMISSION problem, just the slipping clutch! Local dealer would not cover anything--Another dealer would cover flywheel only,not the clutch. If I have to go with an aftermarket clutch and have to use the old splines on tranny, will doing so affect my clutch issue later on if I develope transmission problems

Not surprised that the dealer wouldn't warranty the clutch. You'd be better served to replace the clutch and flywheel together.

thats what im doing now Im replacing the clutch with a twin disc rst mcleod clutch with a aluminum fly wheel.. there are people saying that if you get to light of a fly wheel you will stall out on lights. supposively its so light that it has no energy to get going so if your coming off a stop light easy then it probably will stall but if your dragging then your gunning it off the line so its all good there. anyways take it into mind if you replace the fly wheel there are problems by getting it too light

Welcome to AFM.
Not sure what you mean by "have to use the old splines on tranny".
Your transmission input shaft splines are what the clutch attaches to and I do not see why that would get replaced.
When a person does a clutch job they, replace the clutch, pressure plate, throw out bearing, pilot bearing and resurface or replace the fly wheel.
Are you under the 3 years or 36k miles since you purchased it or does the GT500 not have that coverage?

If I were you, I'd go with the RXT versus the RST. I ran the RXT in my 2007 KenneBell'd GT500 and I loved it.

Black on Mystic Silver Stripe 07 GT500 Shelby

I too hate the clutch issues on the '07 Shelby. Have had all TSB's done within the last two weeks and still not satisfied with the changes. Stalls from full stop with 1200 rpms but seems to be better above 1500 rpms. This to me seems unacceptable for the 500 hps this car is producing.

I am also focusing on suspension for the car was set up with high performance non-street shocks, lowering springs and struts which produces a very loud metal sounding bang when driving on surface streets with small bumps or indentions.

I bought this car in 12/09 with less than 5000 miles which had some minor modifications to it and still working out little issues that will bring it back to a nice high performance street vehicle.

Any recommendations or stories will be appreciated. Thanks!
