Automatic only? Fuck that.

The new front end looks pre-crashed, which is convenient I guess.

That's a whole lotta air intake grill in the front. In don't think it's that bad looking.

But yea, auto only sucks. I wonder what the final drive ratio is going to be to get it to or over 200? It may not need to be too low with the myriad of gears in the new transmission.

Edit: Looked it up, it looks like the current Shelby has a 3.15

That's in front of my house, those are the neighbors hedges. I don't think you met my buddy Matt - he bought this 17 GT350 after he sold all of his Chevys ( his dad was going to give me the 51 pickup at one point, I just never followed through ). The oil stain underneath the car is from when I let Jose do his own, he says HI. Apparently he already broke 201 MPH.

That thing will be an absolute fucking monster with the 10 speed auto. I wouldn't be surprised if it goes mid 10's stock. I've owned 3 GT500's (7,19,11). And my 18 GT is far faster stock for stock.

Here I go harping on that 10 speed again, that's what we need in a bird.

One of the members here needs to make this happen.

That's not true. The autos are more "consistant"

Oh and an update to the GT350R I posted above - the car was sold, he traded it on another 17 GT350R with the track pack / rear seat delete, lighter wheels, etc .. but the suspension is so much stiffer and with recaro seats its just a bit uncomfortable.


Nobody here is going to put a 10 speed in a Tbird. Ever. LOL

LOL, you got me there. Make that a 21 speed - manual shifting, no clutch.
