All i know is that GM had 2 cars built and where testing, one was good but heavy, and one was Wow and i don't know about you, but i have not seen the Wow car.

So i am holding out hope that we we see that car soon.

You forgot the word "almost" before the word perfect.

I didn't debate that. It'll gobble up any track you throw at it...but there are some much more "focused" racers out there...few are OEM, but they're out there.

Anyways...you inferred it didn't really have a "wow" factor that ShnOmac thought it did....I made a "light" disagreement in return!

Well I guess the "wow" factor is completely subjective. Even though It is not for me I still think "wow" every time I see it or watch videos of it in action.

Not sure how a 7:41 at the 'ring is not enough to make anyone say "Wow"......

Camaro look-like and a bigger Engine called LS7
MD? No chance, we do it the hard way :-D :-D :-D

Here is what I see

The regular Boss is more like the 1LE concept, while the SSX is more like the a further stripped down Boss LS.

What is most likely to happen, note this may never happen but what I see as the highest possibility, like in the past the 1LE was an upgrade to the Z28 and will continue that same progression. The 1LE concept will become the Z28 with an LS7 due to the quicker validation and development time then a upgraded LS3, a stripped down version like the SSX but still a streetable car will will become the 1LE also with an LS7. I would expect the 1LE to be limited run cars just as before and both cars would be without MRC.

Again this is all speculation but to me makes the most sense
