Thanks.

Phenomenal handling.... I ride a Harley and seek out twisting and turning "motorcycle" roads. These are now 1LE roads!!

Cool. It's exciting to be close to ordering. I'm about one month from being financially ready to order a 1LE. After that I will be waiting to see what the 2014s will bring. Hope I don't have to wait too long for solid info.

You know you dont have to pay till it comes in . I technically didnt have the entire down payment when I ordered mine, but it wasnt a big deal. Most dealers either want 1,000 down or nothing down to order.


TRUST me, waiting for this car to be built was one of the hardest things Ive ever had to live through. Doesnt seem bad looking back at it, but god the 2 months or w/e was an eternity. You never know what delays there may be too in production or shipping. And the 1LE's have to go off site for the hood black out, so thats another 2 days or so.

You could do this mod without taking the bumper off but I was installing my LED reverse lights, so it made it easier. They fit very well.



Check out the connections to the duel mode exhaust.



Question... when my SS 1LE comes in, i plan on getting the ZL1 splash guards like you have, along with the ZL1 diffuser which wraps around the entire bumper. when installing them, does it require me to drill any holes? or does it snap right in with a few clips?

The rears do not need to be modified to fit on our cars. If you get the zl1 diffuser the hole you see in the first picture (top left) will also be used. On the SS with an OEM diffuser these holes go unused.

excellent, so it sounds like the ZL1 diffuser will go on fairly easily. also, did you use plastidip when painting the ledge around your grill on the front bumper? looks great.

yes i used plastidip of the upper facia... i peeled it off (had a few bad spots) and will reapply at some point... that is the best thing about it you can change your mind relatively pain free.

Cool Photos and Video from Drag n Lap

First time on a track. This event was a lot of fun. Drag n Lap. Run a quarter mile and then complete a 1.8 mile lap on the road course. My best results was for the 1/4 13.333 and my best lap time was 71.055 which was 8th best over all!! This car rocks!!! :

Looks like a lot of fun!

Are you putting headers on that you need to get the O2s out?

Yeah my first attempt failed... I heated them up pretty good and could get them to move a little just couldn't get them to spin free. I may have time this weekend to try again.
