    I'm considering buying a Shelby, and I wanted to know what everyone thinks the worst things about the car are.

    Also, from short reading at KB, the only supporting mod needed for a 2.8L is driveshaft.

    Can I really keep bone stock engine, clutch, and tranny and just throw on driveshaft, drag radials, and a KB and have 700rwhp ?

    Thanks, in advance

    What mods? There must be something you don't like about the car... I just want to know what to look out for.

    Thanks!
