FYI: This is a pretty good site that has all of the fluids and gives a description and specs for each brake fluid.

I've had my 1LE at 2 track days at NJMP thunderbolt so far. I have braided stainless lines, a separate clutch reservoir, and amsoil 580 degree fluid, otherwise brakes are completely stock. If I start really getting on the brakes late I get fade, but not too bad. As a little background info, I'm over 130 on the straight, and my lap times are consistent 1:40's. I'm going to try adding brake ducts more for preservation of pads/rotors than anything else because honestly, the stock setup is not that bad.

I learned a couple of items specific to the 1LE when adding brake ducts.

The air from the lower grille area is faster and cooler than the air near the fog light openings...(which is listed in a post above also)

The 1LE dust shield (aka rotor backing plates) are the same small ones used on the ZL1. (you can see this if you climb under the car or take a wheel off) This would explain why the ZL1 air duct that enter from the lower grill and dumps/directs air through the fender liners works.

I priced everything out yesterday and will be ordering the parts next week to figure out how to mount them in the SS/1LE front end.

This will require some fab work as the ducts will not match up directly to SS front end.......DIY.project thread in the future...

Use Motul 600 and your track pad of choice. I can't believe e stock pad will hold up to serious track use.

Is a stock Brembo not an upgrade to a truly stock pad?

GM uses Ferodo HP1000 on the 1LE. Not a race pad, but much better than 97% of the stock pads out there

Did you ever install the ducts and did you use 3" or 2.5"?
