sorry for the downtime today as we moved to a faster server -

@  KT/GT : (10 July 2017 - 10:29 AM)

I'm going to use Motul motor oil for my track use and was looking for suggestions on the oil filter to use. Best I can find is guys are saying to stick with the Ford OEM filter. Any suggestions?

@  KT/GT : (10 July 2017 - 10:28 AM)

I figured out how to disable to default valves in the pipes so the car's exhaust can be in track/sport mode all the time. With the car running and the exhaust in track mode (valves open) just unplug the wire connection at the rear of the car right by the exhaust tips. The valves must be open when you do this as the wires disconnected keeps it in whatever position they are in when you disconnect them. When you start the car it shows you a warning that the exhaust mode is not available but it goes off in 2 to 3 seconds and you do not have to hit "ok" to get rid of it. Much easier than changing it to track/sport mode each time.

@  smokum : (10 July 2017 - 10:08 AM)

Million dollar question ..... I would read the posts under oil consumption and you will get a better idea.

@  pguile131 : (09 July 2017 - 08:11 PM)

What is normal oil consumption

@  JohnCappola : (08 July 2017 - 10:05 AM)

I am new to this forum and would like to learn more about the 2016 Shelby GT-350.

@  KT/GT : (03 July 2017 - 06:08 PM)

I also will be using this car on the track and I have been told to disable the air bags as they have been activating on the rumble strips. Is this as simple as taking out a fuse?

I have a 2017 GT350 (2100 miles) that has developed a clunk / squeak in the passenger side rear suspension. Local ford dealer thought it was the right rear shock.. ordered same, installed it which seamed to have stopped the noise. It has returned again after just a 100 or so miles. Has anyone heard / experienced this problem? I haven't seen a TSB on this. Any insight appreciated.

Not sure but I've noticed a clunk when I pull out of my garage backwards. I think it might be that 'Hill Holder' option sticking...

One of the first things I did was turn off the hill holder.  It would activate even on slight inclines and prevent smooth acceleration before clunking loose.  I've been driving sticks since high school, so I figure I don't need a hill holder at this stage.   :clap:

 

I also get a clunk sometimes when backing out.  I know in my case, it's not the hill holder since it's turned off.  It seems to the brake pads that stick to the rotors.  Usually it happens when the car sits overnight after a wash or enough rain to thoroughly wet the rotors.  It can take a fair amount of throttle to break them loose.  Seems to be less pronounced if I leave the hand brake off.  Had a similar thing occur in my GTI.

Thanks for the responses. But.. It's much more of a squeak type noise. Not fill holder or e brake. My guess is / are suspension bushing or something similar. ..? As the replacement shock wasn't the issue.

the brakes do catch when the car has been sitting for a while .... and I didnt know you had the option of turning off the hill break. I love it on and it helps on those gentle slopes and gives u 

a few seconds to transition from the brake to the gas.

 

Your clunk if its that noticable, have you taken to your Ford store to see if they can find anything loose ?

my service folks told me that even the GT have the same issue- it's mainly due to having the parking brake on after a while. You really have to gas it to break free- almost feel like I am going to crack the axle!

I've read through the GT350 supplement, but don't recall coming across; how to you turn off the hill holder function?

It's in the main Mustang manual, but not the supplement.  It's called "Hill Start Assist" and in the "Brakes" section.
