Hello All! I have a 2017 GT350R chassis HR687. Does anyone have the final breakdown on the 2017 production number totals and production of each specific model and option pkgs yet? Ford SVT told me there were 942 R's made and about 6000 GT's. Also, what is a good street tire to run on an R since no other company makes the R rear tire size? Can I run the front tire size on the rear of the R? I have seen phohot of guys running the 325-30-19 on the rear but it looks too large for the wheel well. I wanted to go with the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S. Thanks!

Thanks guys, I was able to get a New 2018 Black with White Stripes for 5k over

@Biggest for a 2017 anything between 5 and 10 over is a good price but you'll have tough time finding the color you want. Popular color/stripes combo can easily go for 15/20 over. I'm not sure if I would even try to buy a 2018. Being the last production year I'd be surprised to see anything below 20 over sticker. My advice is to be patient and keep calling around all over the country. I got mine at 7 over sticker out of pure luck. Every single dealer that I spoke with before finding mine would not go below 15. All you need is one lucky situation where they are trying to get rid of it

@  panzer69 : (29 January 2018 - 01:15 PM)

yeah i agree with that, my dealer is selling his 60k above

IF YOU FOUND A GT350R AT MSRP ITS PROBABLY ALREADY SOLD TO SOMEONE ELSE .... JUMP ON IT ... DO NOT PAST GO DO NOT COLLECT $200

@  Biggest : (27 January 2018 - 10:10 AM)

Hey Guys, im new to this forum(registered now) Can any of you give me an idea of what a good price for a new 2017 Gt350R is? I have one on hold in New Jersey, Black with white stripe and electronic package, MSRP is $68020, I have not found one at MSRP so my question is whats a good/decient price on a 2017? Thanks

Clutch pedal action feels goofy. Uneven resistance.

 

I was watching a video yesterday where the guy says that he replaced some spring on his clutch pedal with one from Steeda, and the clutch feels right now.

 

Anyone have experience with improving clutch pedal feel?

Some of have done this and I read where one did this and put the old spring back. 

 

After driving my 07GT500 the clutch felt ever so light ..... incredible so. But I have gotten use to and now actually appreciate it

 

Most just take time to get use to the action but most like it.

I did the Steeda spring mod about a month after I owned the car because I hated the progressive pressure change in the clutch travel. The mod takes 5 minutes, the factory system used two springs and that is why half way through the clutch travel there is a change in the pedal feel, I removed both springs and replaced it with the one Steeda spring and it is still light but constant. Best mod for the money I have ever done! Highly recommended.

Agree with Cobra. Really like the clutch feel with the Steeda spring.
Combined with the MGW shifter, it is an entirely upgraded shifting experience.

That is it. When you change it, remove both OEM springs.

I did the Steeda spring swap in my 2017 GT350 and I like it much better then the feel of the goofy OEM dual spring setup.  I changed out the spring a couple of weeks ago and never looked back.  If you like a more linear feel to the clutch pedal then I recommend doing the Steeda spring swap.

I have made a few comments about the spring and thought I was fine with the OEM spring from ford ...... But I still sometimes stall the car or let the clutch out to fast ..... the "linear" comment

hit a nerve ..... thats what I dont have ..... the stock spring is a tad touchee 

 

I hear the spring is a breeze to put in to ... correct ?

Yeah, it's a piece of cake.  It took me a whole three minutes to do the swap.   :)   From your comments above I think you will like the feel of the Steeda spring.

Deed is done.

 

Ordered from Steeda on interweb Sunday. Received yesterday. Put in today.

Almost missed delivery; Steeda shipped with sig required. On a $15 part.

Maybe they've been ripped off too many times.

 

How easy was install? Super easy. I read the instructions, got blurry eyed, and

took it to my mechanic. He put it in for free.

 

How does it feel? I was disappointed at first. It feels like a clutch. Yeah, I know,

that's what I wanted. I'm just not used to anything on my GT350 feeling normal.

 

Haven't driven it much since install, but I can report it is linear, and NORMAL.

Key is low speed driving, in parking lots, etc. No tricks required in managing it;

no special learned skill required. Modulation is like the dozens of other manuals

I have driven.

 

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

smokem, I'm now looking into fog lights.

 

When I bought my Bullitt, I paid dealer $375 to install fogs. A damn driver's car without fogs.

 

Same thing with GT350. A super driver's car that doesn't have fog lights.

 

I'm thinking YELLOW. In keeping with the style of the car.

I'm perfectly content with the stock spring.  Now  the wheels, that's a whole 'nother story!!!  My stock wheels are now nicely nestled in the attack.

I do miss the special feel of the stock spring. Even though it gave me vertigo. I'll never go back. Trying to parallel park with a two-stage trigger is a disaster in the waiting.

I installed the Steeda clutch spring yesterday and while not a night to day difference, it is at least linear now and doesn't have the two-stage feel to it anymore.

I was wondering about the clutch pedal when I purchased it felt kinda funny to me and took some getting use to. But after reading this I am ordering the spring and see I finally I like that better.
