I changed dead battery in 2008 Shelby, now my instrument cluster is not working correctly. No fuel indication , no oil pressure indication,no blinkers or 4 ways(indication). All lights work but don't indicate. Did I blow a fuse, does the computer need reset??

Anybody know if 66 350 H came in white with gold stripes? I always thought they only came in black with gold or white with blue. The one I've got is white with gold. I did a bare metal strip and repaint and if it was a repaint I can't tell.It's also got a Paxton on it. I freshened it up, forged pistons and rods, cam. shaft mounted Jesel roller rockers, etc. It's dynoing about 585, and I love driving it. It's gonna get me in trouble. Thanks, if anybody knows about the paint.

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.

When upgrading to the "R" calipers, do you need to change the rotors as well, or are they the same for all the 350's?  I'm assuming they're the same, but would like to know before I spend the money.

NO ..... the calipers for the R model are identical to your grey calipers and you dont change the rotors ..... only difference is the color which I love. The red calipers stand out so well its a must

 

You use the brake pads from the old calipers and snap and play into the red calipers .... real easy

I got mine at cost plus 10 percent ... employee pricing .... with the caliper bolts and all four calipers I paid around $800 plus tax.

 

On ebay for $1249

 

http://www.ebay.com/...fNXl5S5&vxp=mtr

 

so if you can get your local store to order them for you and have them install them they may give you a reduce cost on the calipers since they are getting the install job

Dang them look SICK!!! I think the Black looks better against my Yellow than the red would. But if the price was right I am sure I would switch to them LOL

Black and Red are probably the top colors to have the R calipers installed.

 

What I would do is search the net and find a Yellow R and see what you think with the Red calipers.  The gray calipers just blend too much with the rotors and wheels and you cant make them out real well
