The only magazine that comes to mind is "Camaro Performers", which started out heavily oriented toward corner-carving. Lately, though, there has been considerably more drag racing content.

I think you'll find a lot of knowledge right here on Camaro5.com in the various Technical Camaro Topics (toward the bottom of the section list). There's also a "Performance Drivers" social group (that I wish was a little busier).


I don't know if either you or Mr. W is into autocrossing, but word in the FasTrack notice I just got this morning from SCCA is that the 1LE Camaros will run in
F Stock against the non-Boss Mustang GTs.

GM high tech performance is the best mag. They've covered a bunch of aftermarket installs and even the CTS-V/ZL1 brake upgrade.

Nice write up, I really love the 1LE package
...
I'm still deciding to order a 2013 1LE before its too late, or wait for 2014 and see if they will still offer the 1LE package

There will be a 2014 1LE, it just hasn't been shown yet. Open the first PDF shown on this link. It is the preliminary brochure shown to dealers and the 1LE is listed.

Im thinking ill just wait it out, more money to put down I guess
...
Plus, there might be a chance that the flat black hood is canceled. It's ok for the 2013, but I think Chevy could do better. Not to mention I'd love to have those Z/28 seats

It'll definitely be offered in 2014.

What did you have in mind when you say "better"?

I feel that the 2013 1LE hood wrap gave the vehicle a VERY "unfinished" look
...
Instead, maybe adding a better hood extractor. Maybe something similiar to the ZL1, seeing that most (if not all) of the 1LE features come from the ZL1 anyhow. Or even including racing stripes to the package

I see. Thanks for the thoughts.

Contrary to popular belief...most of what makes a 1LE a 1LE didn't come directly off a ZL1, but was developed in tandem with it. As far as the hood vent...it appears that the 2014 cars will feature that.

Don't get me wrong, the hood is still nice. I still have yet to see the 1LE in person. But from the pics, it's bad ass when you see it from the front.
...
Still eager and waiting to see how the 2014 looks with the hood wrap and extractor
