@  PSU Alumm2 : (17 November 2017 - 11:55 AM)

I placed an order and paid for the License plate holder that is listed on this site on the 15th & to date I have not gotten any shipping info. Also sent an email with no response. Any suggestions? It is through registry market place.
They refunded my money, but I really wanted the license plate holder. I will look elsewhere I guess.

Unless you already have, I would post this under racing ..... but I think you will be fine. I am sure your not the first GT350 to run that track.

@  G3012 : (26 October 2017 - 06:54 PM)

I have had my Metallic GT350 for a little over a year now, and love to drive it. The mountains of Northern CA (Napa, Sonoma, Lake and Mendocino counties) are a drivers dream. I also went to Utah for the 2 day school that was way too much fun. I now am planning on some track days out here in the west, but must meet their sound limits. Sonoma and Thunderhill have a max of 103db, while Laguna Seca are as low as 94 some days. How loud is this monster? Has anyone had any issues on track days for noise? Has anyone been to Sonoma or Thunderhill with their GT350 and had any issues? Thanks for the help,

@  smokum : (24 October 2017 - 03:24 PM)

Any current production car its hard to tell if it will be a collectible or not. I honestly don't see that with the GT350. I dont think it will affect value since it was a warrantied item. Its unfortunate that this is happening but you are getting a new engine which is the right thing to do with Ford. I don't think Ford will replace the car. I suggest if you want a better sample of opinion to start a thread in the appropriate section

@  tedstefaniw : (24 October 2017 - 10:17 AM)

Hey members, would like some Opinions. I purchased my 2016 GT350 late march this year from Levittown Ford NY. I was getting some serious engine knocking noise when starting the car. Had it in the dealer three times, first in July to get it checked, they couldn't diagnose. after keeping the car for days. 2 weeks ago car lost almost all the oil, due to the Oil filter backing out! Most likely due to the excessive engine vibration(rods/lifters?). Destroyed my driveway and my Jobs parking lot. Finally this last time they told me I need a new long block! No problem thay will order new engine. My gripe is I want a new car, I didn't pay over sticker for the best Mustang ever built to get a engine replacement after 6 months. Not to mention , if I ever want to sell the car what this would do to it's resell value. Opinions please?

I havent ...... and need a new helmet to do any NASA events ..... but where I live there is a Group that does autocrosses .... its a organized event and held mthly near where i live at a deserted 

air field .... cones ... etc .... timed event and I am thinking of doing that .... safer and I dont think you need a helmet but I would still bring it

 

If and when I do it I will re post and shoot everyone some pictures

Biggest mistake I ever made was to sell a track prepped 90 Taurus SHO and that dog could hunt. Ran it at Autocross events and Nasa events ..... 

 

 

Wife told me to put it on ebay since i hardly ever had time to use it so I came up with some stupid high price and someone bought it ...... I WAS PISSED

I am booked to go to autoX school next weekend. Any suggestions on tire pressures? The advice for tire pressures from the autoX school is to come with 40 lbs. I drove my GT350 on the track last summer and 40lbs was too much. My tires did not have as much grip as 37-38 lbs warm..

they suggest higher pressure and bring a torque wrench ...... after each session re-torque your wheel studs ..... they can back out a tad .... a old racer suggestion

DId my autocross event in Fort Myers and I wasnt as competitive as I wanted to be.

 

Dont think it was the car but more of the driver and the course.

 

Its about a 90 second run through a bunch of cones and after being a spotter on the track for a hour and half of the sun beating down on you it was my turn

 

The sun and not getting enough sleep the past few days didnt bode well for good times. The course crew gives each car 5 runs and I ended up doing two runs

before I called it quits. I was too exhausted and didnt want to hit a cone and potentially damage my low hanging front splitter. Too make matters worse

somewhere on the course i mis took the cones saying X when they should have been saying Y and I was off course both runs which is a DQ

 

Out of 100 cars I finished dead last. I got home and went right to bed with my tail between my legs !

It is fun and I might give it another shot

Its alot of fun for sure ...... A autocross event on a real open tarmac is pretty safe ..... you decide to race the car at a prof track such as Sebring or Road Atlanta one should

seriously consider getting insurance on there car

In my younger years I was really big into the 90-91 SHO's and raced them. They were actually a very good handling car with just a few modifications. 

 

Now this isnt prof racing .... more like going to a NASA event or the local Porsche club get together.

 

But that being said, I have had the privilege of racing at the following tracks.

 

Sebring International Speedway

 

Mid-Ohio

 

Hallett

 

Road Atlanta

 

My favorite .... hands down Mid Ohio
