Something still bothering me though. It hasn't been confirmed yet about the wheels. C&D said it's staggered wheels with 285s, MT didn't say, and GM media says 20x10s. Can anyone confirm please? This car is already bad a$$ and I wonder if anyone will be changing the rears to 305s if it does have the rear 20x11s. Would look cool but will it affect performance numbers?

And you mean RESURRECT a LEGENDARY moniker like the 1LE, right? Since it's not new...

I don't mind it, they're just learning from their mistakes I hope.
The 4th gens nearly zero advertisements. Not near as much as the new cars.

This car is already faster than the BOSS 302 and just as fast as the GT500 around this track. Just bump the HP up and make a couple other changes. Theres a pretty solid Gen 5 Z/28.

Keep the suspension. Shove a LS7 in there and call it the Z28. Let's make it happen. I am getting tired of the 1LE to be released. Hurry up GM!

I agree...wait for Gen 6 for the Z28 or wait till the end of Gen 5.
Don't dilute the product too fast...

Nice driving. That Charger should have moved out the way a little sooner. Looks like everybody was having fun. Where is that track? California? Can see why you would want a 1LE now.

Dilute the product? Boy are you DILUTED! LOL Nobody wants a 1LE, they want the Z/28 and the only reason people will buy the 1LE option is because of talk. MANY MANY more people will buy a car that has a Z/28 badge on it.
