Clutch is history, looking into a Spec

Can anyone give me an explanation as to why certain clutches are not recommended for the street?

My brother-in-law made me realize that I have a nasty habit of resting my foot on the clutch pedal while I am cruising.

I have been doing this for the past 12,000 miles.

Quick question about suspension

Would an upgrade in my suspension keep my tires from spinning so easily? If so, which parts?

Oil change

It's time for my Shelby to get its first oil change. Do I need to take the synthetic/expensive route? Or can I go as low as the conventional stuff?

I do not want to get hustled today.

Super Snake??

Does anyone know where the closest authorized location is that will convert a Shelby to an SS?

Will this conversion void its warranty?

And most importantly, would it be worth it?
