What I Really Think About My Shelby GT500 After 6,000 Miles!?
My Shelby GT500 is only a month old but already has 6,000 miles on the clock! Driving coast to coast was quite the adventure but now it's time to prepare it for things ahead, including some new tires (too much fun along the way...) and a track alignment at FSE LA.
Having had fun with Line Lock, some donuts and more misbehaviour during the Where's Shmee: US Edition tour, the rear tires had certainly seen better days. No worries though, preparing in advance, the team at FSE LA have a new set ready to be mounted up onto the carbon fibre wheels, along with putting the car through a full alignment to read out how it has been provided from factory and set it up slightly more aggressively for an upcoming trackday.
We're joined at FSE LA by @Joseph Gatt and his modified satin blue GT500, featuring numerous carbon fibre parts and a Borla exhaust system, as well as @Speed Phenom and his new 600LT which replaced his previous GT500.
After getting all the work carried out, let's run over some of the pros and cons of the GT500 now that I've become fairly accustomed to it having spent quite so much time at the wheel including a top speed run, drag races, and using it as a full grand tourer too.
Thanks to FSE LA for all of their help and hospitality looking after my car!
Thanks for watching, Tim
