I'm with 'monkey' on this one... I believe that was even part of the release somewhere, when referring to the new shocks. I don't think that's a bad thing, considering it seems to me the circuit is where 1LE is supposed to be in it's regime. It's hard to get a good blend of both, without getting too expensive.

Regarding MRC III - I'm more starting to believe this is being reserved for a yet announced model. 1LE is the Track Pack for SS, and I believe MRC III is just too valuable and useful to be restricted to one model only, in CAMARO's lineup. Anyways - MRC III is there to make CAMARO is best most reasonable compromise between track car and GT car. There have already been multiple reviewer comments complementing how well it rides off the track in the correct mode while really going around the track at a super-high level.

I think it would've required too many resources and ultimately end up costing too much to make into 1LE, given the way I look at the option. It would've been priced-out of range to keep it competitive (price-wise) and, again - I now subscribe to the theory this may not be the last update to the line that we see. THAT'S where I see MRC III making another appearance.

I understand the MRC being too expensive for a track package, but can I throw a temper tandrum and stomp my foot like a teenage girl that just hit puberty for not getting the ZL1 brakes?

And before someone gets offended. I'm just joking around and being real nit picky. I can't wait to see the 1LE.

Do want. I'll take mine in 1SS trim, non-RS, no sunroof or fancy infotainment please. Make it summit white for me. Hell, the original 1LE didn't even have A/C.

Does anyone know if the 1LE is going to appear at the New York Auto Show in April?

I too would like to know why the 1le didn't receive the ZL1 brakes? Or will they be an option?

I see Fbodfather, you are following this thread, care to comment on this?

MS3DALE mentioned that 1LE brakes are upgraded versions of the stock ss stuff. At least that's what he sees in the system

I've only had my 2012 45th for two months and only 500 miles on it ... but it might be time to trade it for a 2013 WITH a navigation system!

I am just seeing that the brakes are red painted calipers, not necessarily any larger? They better be though, after the clutch, the SS brakes are the weakest component in my opinion. Speaking of the clutch, is that not any different either??

The 1LE shown at SEMA had what appear to be CTS-V / ZL1 brakes.
