Nice review and I like the list shown at the end. Way to go ZL1 and 1LE.

What I find amazing is the 1LE's peak speed compared to all other cars with the same lap times. Seeing that the 1LE's peak speed is much lower shows how capable the 1LE is on the track in order to achieve such a great lap time. The suspension upgrades help tremendously. I am very proud to own such an awesome car, and I'm sure all other 1LE owners will say the same!

Give the 1LE some more NA HP and it would rise in the standings. The chassis is great according to the stats.

i wonder how far below 3 min it would be if those 2 "mistakes" didnt occur. the ZL1 posted a 2:57. it makes you wonder if th 1le could get a 2:59 or 2:58 vs the ZL1's 2:57 an LS7 1LE (Z28) just might OWN the ZL1 on the road course

It will be close. HP is the only thing (according to the top MPH) I see holding the 1LE back. Look how many cars it beat that had higher top MPH.

Just make sure a supercharger is not used to get that extra horsepower. The extra weight would possibly throw off the balance of the car, which is what makes it so fast on the track. Mabye Sukxost could chime in and let us know what he thinks of the car's balance with a supercharger... A 1le that is slightly modded with bolt ons, exhaust, and a good tune would completely own at the track in the hands of the right driver!

CAI, LT's and a tune and I think you have a track day beast. An extra 40-50 Hp to the wheels would move this car up the list considerably.
