Maybe ford will drop their truck axle and get a real sports car suspension next go around.

Yes! The 1LE beat an old Boss LS time by 1.3 seconds. Maybe the 1LE will finally grab some more well deserved attention. Very impressive time by the ZL1 as well. Still would like to see a same day track showdown between the Boss LS and the 1LE.

Very impressive how the 1LE was only 0.9 behind the GT500. The Laguna Seca BOSS got beat out too and that thing is NOT cheap!

Anyone else find it hilarious that a Car and Driver segment was posted to the Motor Trend forums?

The Boss ran last year like the SS which will no doubt be the excuse..

ZL1 and 13GT500 were same day..

I'd be interested in seeing how the FE4 suspension changed things for the 2012 Camaro SS lap time compared to the 1LE and ZL1.

Has the Boss LS beat the GT500? Being that the ZL1, GT500 & 1LE ran the same day this would provide a good base

Also wondering how a plain SS would do. Impressive for the 1LE and ZL1!

I also like seeing that Z06 do so well against the higher priced Nissan GTR's.

Actually, there's an SVT site-sponsored boat cruise taking place as we speak...in Egypt. The route? It's on de Nile...

The LS has not beat the 13 GT500. I don't think it really matters. The old GT500 was slightly faster than the 12 Boss, and I don't think there has been enough of a difference between the 12 and 13, if any, to make it any faster. Either way, the 1LE and the ZL1 rocked it. Very impressive times.

Yes, but not the sub 3 minute times for the 1LE as promised. I think a 1LE vs Boss LS rematch is needed. Same track same driver. Is there a comprehensive 1LE vs Boss LS track test? I have only seen 1LE vs standard Boss test and at that not much info on the track test.
