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

  • The miles have been clocking up fast! My GT500 is now at about 6,000 miles in only a month since picking it up from PPF, but no surprises... the rear tires are gone and need changing. I mean, that's not really a surprise with this car is it?!

    • @Thomas Mackerley Definitely does and because of the fact that Shelbys aren’t popular in Europe would make things complicated especially with Ford Dealerships. No one there is going to know how to fix a Shelby Mustang properly unless they import Shelbys and consistently work on them.

    • @GT Mike91 thats what I was asking about. There should still be a warranty on it. I could see having to pay the shipping costs on parts. But then again after reflection, they have special Shelby technicians at certain dealers. To do something Shelby specific, he would have to ship it back to the US. And probably due to manufacturers these days, everything is Shelby specific. And yea, 6k miles a month is a lot. I once did 15-17k in 3 months and I was in the car basically ALL THE TIME, like 4-5 hrs a day. I’d take one 50 mile trip 2-3X day. It adds up quick

      Thomas MackerleyThomas MackerleyAcum 13 Zile
    • @Thomas Mackerley Because his car isn’t sold in the UK? I’m pretty sure Shelbys aren’t sold globally. Even if they were they aren’t anywhere near regular GT numbers at all.

    • @Cristobal romero 6,000 miles in one month is not low the fuck are you talking about? Most people do roughly 1,000 miles a month and that’s just daily commute. He did 6 times that...

    • Good sir, if you could please explain the warranty situation. Why would it not be covered no matter where you take it? As long as it’s not modified, the warranty should be active. I can understand paying some shipping for parts to the UK, but that shouldn’t change warranty terms

      Thomas MackerleyThomas MackerleyAcum 18 Zile
  • NO warranty once its back in Europe, more reason to modify it :)

  • Toe out on the track is fine but it will wear out your front tires really fast and causes the car to dart around on poor roads.

  • I liked your videos and content untill you forced purchasing your advertising and marketing material via algorithms.... basically you interrupt all your streams and all your work with trying to get people to buy your stuff.... Think things through a little more..... been watching you for 6 months it's been great until the last couple weeks massive advertising and marketing.... You just went from being a cool car guy to just another capitalist....
