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.

Hey new to forum have 2017 gt 350 beware of oil filter coming loose.I was at watkins glenn for track day oil filter came loose and 10 quarts of oil leaked out in nothing flat nailed wall wiped car. Please check filter torque every 500 miles this happened at 625 miles since I checked filter torque. Do not want to see anyone hurt. Be safe.

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.

I got to attend the 2017 Runway challenge at the Mojave Air and Space Port for some timed runs up to 1.5 miles.  I had not entered the event, but the event organizers (really cool dudes) said "we don't have any mustang representation," why don't you wheel that Shelby up and we'll give you a number.  Hell yes!!!!!  

 

But, I had this problem:  the hood has an aerodynamic flaw: at speed, it lifts up at the outer edges.  I actually had a photographer come up and show me the pictures - there was clearly a 1-2" gap between the hoods and fenders. This seems like a design flaw.  Any one else experienced this?

 

Here are the runs:

 

Mustang GT350

Ferrari 458 Italia (event organizer let me drive his Ferrari.  First time in a Ferrari and I do 188!

My buddies 2017 GT (he eventually went 203mph)

Wild 1000hp 2005 twin turbo GT

230 MPH? That's insane.

 

Anyways, yes the hood does lift a bit above 100 but I think they mitigated the problem for the MY 2017. The fastest I went with mine was around 140 (on a racetrack) and it was barely noticeable.

I have a issue with my hood too. The drivers side fits almost perfectly ..... the passenger side where it meets the fende over the headlamp is a good 1/2 inch off ... higher ... 

 

I have the same concern if i get up to high speeds if I would have the issue too .

 

I am also afraid of having our body shop touch it for making things worse
