I can't find any info, anywhere, that says the 1LE brakes are anything other than SS brakes. Seems odd for a "track ready" package. I really hope they are somehow beefed up. I find standard SS brakes almost scary just on the street.

What is "scary" about them?

I think you'll find a "more aggressive" brake pad, supplied.

There are some tweaks...

If you really want the ZL1 brakes, we do have a Chevrolet Performance Catalogue with all kinds of 'goodies' to select from.......

This is an affordable car that will shock many and be a pleasant surprise to our Camaro enthusiasts.......
Fair enough. I have never had the chance to play that much with an SS, so I will have to take your word that the SS brakes are sufficient. But I figured you have a better set of brakes suited for track use, why not through them on there. I would think GMs price on the 6pots is not that much more then the 4. Even so, making it a factory option, I think would be a money maker for Chevrolet. I would imagine that anyone checking the boxes for a 1le would not let that box go unchecked.

That all makes sense, however I believe it's being saved for another Camaro. Z**

Hmmm...you have a nice car there, but I would think that if you used a vert for tracking, like the 1LE option would be, wouldn't that be a safety issue with no hardtop?

keep in mind - the SS comes with Brembo Brakes - 6 piston Brembo Brakes!

You can buy the ZL1 brakes thru the Chevrolet Performance Catalog.

We wanted to keep the price reasonable - and further, we must keep build complexity down - it improves quality AND it saves money so that the cost of the car to you is lower.

Is that a typo sir or are the SS's getting upgraded from the 4 piston calipers to 6?

Exciting changes. However, I wish there was some type of HP increase over a stock SS (like the boss 302).

The Boss is less a power increase and more a power shuffle. Investigate!

Does anyone have the price handy for the switch to the 6 piston/2piece rotor fronts?

Thanks

I am becoming very interested in the 1LE. I believe a 1SS + 1LE + Heritage Grill would be my checked options. I don't need all the 2SS, RS, interior luxuries or ground effects kits or anything further. Just style + performance + affordability, and I think Fbodfather and the Camaro team listened to customers like me. I am seriously considering the 1SS 1LE as a potential future purchase, and furthermore, as a second Camaro at that. I still really like my 1LS, and don't think I'd want to part with it as a trade in. Just saving all I can now in advance to have a down payment ready when the time comes.

I really think they should have the black hood delete option.
I think more 2010 guys would upgrade at this point. I would SO sell my 2010 SS for the 1LE. I'm old school, Camaros need rally stripes..
