Help with Shelby NEWBIE re Clutch

Recommended Posts



I am new and gonna pull the on new 09 gt500 and have a few questions for the pros so please help =)


1) Is the clutch really hard and not smooth as so i heard?


2) what should i know about the TSB? dates etc


3) I know that the brand new is around 43k usd but why is pre-owned still around 36-38k? Is the resale value that good?

The clutch isn't all that bad. Some complain that it is a little hard, and mine was easier after the TSB was preformed, however, I still didn't have any problems with the clutch pre-TSB. If anything, it's almost TOO soft now.


If you buy a 2009 you do not need to worry about the clutch TSB, as it has the updated parts in it already.


The resale value I would consider rather poor, considering that many owners who bought the GT500 in the first two years paid sticker, or over sticker.

Yeah man don't sweat the clutch... it's an easy car to drive.


My Roush clutch in my GT chatters like a mother and is a lot less forgiving than my GT500.


Congrats man you're gonna LOVE this car... I mean LOVE it... like maybe want to marry it :)
