Hi,

I recently purchased a 14 GT500. It’s an amazing car! I’m coming from a 700rwhp TVS Terminator and the 14 isn’t much slower. I’ve never driven a GT500, nor have I driven a s197 for that matter and what a difference! The chassis is solid!

Attached is a pic of the ride. She’s barely broke in with only 1050miles.

Awesome find with only 1050 miles!

What part of S.C. do you live? I'm in the Upstate, not many 13/14 Owners in my neck of the woods.

^^^What he said.

I’m in Asheville now was in Greenville, SC.
Thanks guys, I believe I’m the first person to wax the car. One noticeable difference coming from the Terminator is - she’s bigger.

Congrats on the new Shelby. It's pretty easy to get her well over 700whp

Wow, only 1,050 miles on her. That is serious low mileage. Basically a new car. Congrats! Enjoy it, as I know you will. Any modding plans?

Thanks guys! And yes, she is like new. Not one rock chip(knock on wood).

I plan on doing a slightly smaller pulley, exhaust and a shifter.

I know with Terminators the IRS NEEDs a FTBR bushing kit to perform right. Any mods that are NEEDED/necessary for the Trinity’s?

Tires for sure, get rid of those crapyears on the back and you will notice a huge difference in hookup. I run 315 NT05Rs on my stock rim with no issues

Add - LCAs/UCA to attempt to keep it going straight at WOT. Relo brackets and adjustable panhard bar if you lower it.

MGW shifter before you miss second enough times to hurt the synchros.

Congrats on the new ride. These are neat cars for sure.

Welcome.
1) remove clutch spring
2) DRs
3) Lund tune
It's the best start, gears are the next best mod.
Use the search and enjoy.
