You could sell the shock, but the thing that makes them special is the computer in the car. Without that, they're just a heavier than normal shock with a few wires sticking out.

The MRC struts would have value only as replacement parts for another ZL1. Supercars for the ZL1 are the same price as Supercars for the SS.

+1. And being that the ZL1 and Ferarri 458 Italia (I think?) are the only cars on the planet that currently employ the dual-coil MR system....it makes them particularly low in demand. :(

Hello, old friends!

So we have a "1LE" to play with, soon. "Enhanced FE4"...GREAT! Lower cost...and very mod-able with PEDDERS pieces at the ready.

But we're missin' the extra steam to fully annihilate the BOSS LS...and seriously chase BIG Brother...

GM-massaged LS3? The widely-wished-for LS7? Camaro-introducing LT1?

Pray tell, what is ZEE answer?!

Which RED number will it be?!

MRC as an Option, or Standard?

And, most importantly, WHEN?

MRC On our Z This is a Z/28 When we run into a track wall, we smile because we did t without MRC, traction control, stability control or automatic transmission

Base SS with 1LE option checked.
Heads, cam and tune
CTS-V front calipers and rotors
Forgeline 19x11s with Brdigestone RE-11 305/30/19 all round
Hoop with removable cross bar for twin five point harnesses

Add Supercars, Pedders Z bar upgrades, OEM ZL1 toe links (they may already be in the car) a couple of key bushes and we are tearing up the track!!!!!

What we don't know, but I suspect is part of the 1LE package is if the rear sub-frame is the Z sub-frame with enhanced by GM sub-frame bushes and the special ZL1 toe links.

OOO!!! LT1 Gen V?!!! I LOVE the idea of that for Z28!!! THAT - would make for an especially special Z28, and CAMARO, for that matter. I would go out on a limb and suggest that would be MORE special than our current "Z"-car

If GM were to do something like this - I could seriously challenge my unparallel desire for the other "Z"-car

...and don't need to...

As a nod to the longstanding thoughts contained in this thread, and the fact it has lain dormant for awhile, may I offer this appropriate musical interlude? Tap your toes, now, to the BOSS version...



...and NOW for the Z28 version...
