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?

Somewhere while browsing the forums, I saw that somebody has come up with foam plugs to insert in the front of the rocker panels where they meet the front fender wheel opening. Stones and dirt always accumulate in this opening during daily driving. I did a search here and found nothing.........
Any help?

JLT Performance is who has them. But remember its sponge and sponge absorbs water. So don't know if being up against the paint could cause paint problems over time if not taken out and checked periodically to make sure they are dry.

I know what the plugs do .... but is the only reason to get them is to keep rocks off the plastic ? To me its not a big deal to wipe that area clean every so often  Or can the rocks come through the opening and hit your paint ???


Curious minds are wandering !!

I think there purpose is to keep little stones and dirt from building up in the little cavity between the rocker plastic and the fender.  I have them on my car and they work great for keeping debris out of the cavity.


I have always wondered why that gap was there in the first place and I read somewhere it is actually there to help with aerodynamic performance at high speeds.  I don't know if its true, but it at least sounds good because otherwise why would you leave that gap there to fill up with debris?

I used some computer monitor packaging black foam. Cut them with an Exacto knife to fit snug. --Price?/  FREE>
