I hope it's engine is unique in some way. It gets a little boring seeing them take Mustang GT's, throwing on a whipple, and charging $40-50k more. That's how they made their latest Super Snake. No thank you.

I doubt the powerplant will be different, nothing wrong with the 5.8 TVS Setup, i could see a much more refined suspension though

I think this is most likely what it is. They have been showing pics of the development car for months now.

Since the GT350 has splined front hubs, I'm venturing to guess it will have AWD and even more power than the Hellcat. GTR 2.0 from Ford?
4800 pound AWD mustang. No thanks.

Interesting. But not so sure about that one. No Hertz hastag.

What? hahahaha The 5.8 TVS set up was outdated when it was introduced. Other than the liner coating of the block it was nothing more than a last attempt to make the 5.4 worth while.

That is a major dissapoint. But I don't expect much from Shelby America. Their cars have been ugly, over priced and under performing for years. Just another car in the line up of their crap.

So it's a plain Jane GT with a body kit and exhaust.

The only thing shocking about this is the fact everyone wasted their time with it.

Enticed by the new suspension and Michelin Pilot Super Sports. I don't think I've read any test of the Ford Performance suspension option. Is that something 15-16 owners are buying?

Probably not most of the ford performance suspension I've seen didn't look nearly as nice as bmr stuff but it's about the same price or more than good aftermarket stuff

$1,500 for all of this doesn't seem that bad. Depends on how aggressive it is over the base track pack, I guess.

Handling Pack Includes:

Assembled Front Struts and rear shocks M-18000-F
Track Lowering Springs M-5300-Y
Performance Pack Upper Strut Mounts
Jounce Bumper Kit M-5570-B
Sway Bar Kit M-5490-E
Performance Pack Rear Toe Links
Toe Link to knuckle Bearings M-5A460-M

He said Super Snake so I took it as the Shelby American modded Super Snake. If he meant CJ he sure didn't say that. And yes, the 2015 Shelby built Super Snake did come with a 5.0.

Some guys are buying it but I have not seen any real back to back track data with that kit. Most are buying that kit because it has the only aftermarket option for shocks & struts so far. Koni, Tokico and others say they are close to releasing their offerings soon.

The FRPP kit is probably great for most people out there that want better handling and never hit a road course or autocross. The springs are not very stiff, the shock valving matches the springs well and the sway bars are only two way adjustable. So there isn't much to adjust with the kit either. Want a little better handling than the Performance Pack offers and less of a bouncy ride then this is the kit for you. Want to have a corner carver, that will see track time and offers more adjustability? You will piece a kit together once shocks and struts are released.

I believe @Jeffs FRC has the FRPP kit on his car. But I don't know if he has even put any miles on it since he installed the kit.
