Beautiful car that can make a lot of people envious I'm sure. So, if they are going for $15K over MSRP as you said, how did you get your's at MSRP?
Pure luck. I called and called tons of dealerships before the Shelby's started coming in, and most of them were saying they wanted 10-15 over. Well I found one dealership that said they get more Shelbys than most dealerships so they can afford to sell the first one or two at MSRP to improve business. Luckily I was able to reserve the first one from this dealer and got the price in writing.
At this point, I don't think there are many dealerships selling them at MSRP anymore, but in 6-12 months I bet they'll come down just like the Boss did last year.
Right on angryBits, I hear ya. Like all of us always say when we get a car... I'm good with the power. When you get used to it you'll want more, like we all do, haha. I guess the level of modding would depend on what you wanna do with it. As for me, the purpose of my car is to stomp people on a race track. I love going by M3's and GTR's and Vette's and Camaro's with my ancient SRA mustang. Last year the Tiger Racing Boss with its SRA dominated the Pirelli World Challenge.
It sounds like springs and sway bars would be an awesome place to start. Have you noticed any wheel hop yet?
Any Black with no stripes if for sure the best!
Not really. If I spin the tires from a 10-80roll (yep I can spin'em at 80) then its smooth as silk, all you notice is that the tail gets a little slippery but no hop.
However from a standing start, depending on the road surface, compared to my stock 2011 GT it's WAAAY better almost no hop, but I'd say it's not as good as my GT was after I lowered it and put the steeda lower control arms and 3rd link and all that, but pretty close. I'd say lowering this car 1" would really take care of any sloppiness or wheel hop.
If I lower the car 1" though, I think I'm going to have to take off the front lip extension. This car is already pretty close to scraping.
