STILL waiting for a 1LE time @ the Ring. The Z28 time is EPIC, especially knowing they think it could run 5-6 seconds faster

Agreed they will likely not run it but hell, the 2010 SS ran it...now the ZL1, ZR1, Z28 have all ran it...why not the 1LE?

The SS was the top tier Camaro when they ran it.

Some one was asking for SS and SS w/1LE package NÜRBURGRING LAP TIME.

From the Brochure just posted to the home page:

CAMARO SS (CONTINUED)
NÜRBURGRING LAP TIME 8:19 (Coupe)

Sorry no 1LE times

CAMARO ZL1
NÜRBURGRING LAP TIME 7:41.27 (Coupe)

With AWD (the future for street HiPo), more nannies, and a little more power the Z28 would be right there with the GTR. Bet the Z28 is more fun to drive the way it is.

Both the Z28 and ZL1 are beating very impressive RWD cars. Very impressive for what is essentially a pirated OZ mid priced sedan.

Still the real HiPo bargain in the Camaro lineup is the 1LE.

My Guess:

CAMARO 1LE
NÜRBURGRING LAP TIME 7:46.69 (Coupe)

Me too. Spirited discussion from very knowledgeable people always makes for interesting conversation no matter what they drive. And even if they step on some toes that's okay too. Makes it even more interesting. But we all need to keep the discussion on track, rather than slinging personal insults.

Fanboy site = boring.

And here I am digressing. To me the Z28 times are very impressive. There is a limit to what you can do with a 3,700 pound RWD front engine sedan with "only" 505 crank HP. Easy enough to uncork another 50 HP though. So this modded Z28 on a dry track could run sub 7:30s IMO. Let's see how it does with shorter tracks.

I don't think that the 1LE made up ~33 seconds on the SS. Sure the suspension is a lot better, but power is the same. A 7:46.69 would put it only 5.42 seconds behind a ZL1. It might do well until the long straight near the end, but the ZL1's sheer power would put some serious distance on the 1LE, IMO.

My wishful thinking maybe, being a 1LE fan boy. I'm sure Chevy has run one there.

So here is what I am wondering about the Z28. Maybe it is possible the Z28 could have more than 505 HP. Why couldn't Chevy supply a real aggressive LS7 tune, a ported and better angled TB if that helps, a lower bumper air scoop, and the best Camaro CAI ever that needs a tune on the Z28? Then if they felt the need to, just supply a limited powertrain warranty. What real Z28 buyer would care?

They did other radical stuff like lighter glass.

I would bet 530+ HP at the crank easy.

Could it be because the SS, ZL1 and the Z/28 are are separate models but the 1LE is just an optional performance package for the SS?
