i def would take off springs, hood, cai, lights etc etc but calipers and wheels would be tricky and i still have to talk the wife into it. Right now i have no camaro payments and i would have one if i did this deal so thats the hold up plus i just bought a $45,000 truck.....

Cool

Depends on how much you want or need a track car, I'm fine with my SS, and just add the 1LE stuff as wanted, or needed...................... JRJ

I find it hard to believe they offered you that much for your trade. They definitely wouldn't let you demod if they already made an offer. If they're not lying to you I would take that deal in a heartbeat.

I would say that is a dang good trade allowance they offered you. I know you have stuck alot of $$$ in it with mods, but when doing a dealer trade you can't expect to get any of that money back. I doubt very much if they would alot you to do any de-modding, at least appearancewise.

Your Camaro listed new for around $39k probably, and with only 900 miles on it, it's like brand new. A $6k trade difference sounds like a really good deal to me. What can the loan payment be on $6k ..... $100 a month? If you can swing it, by all means go for it.

After all, it's only money, you can't take it with you, and you only live once.

Why trade now?

You are halfway there on the suspension. Add bushing upgrades next.

There is no difference in power, just different gearing for race tracks.

I am feeling this... Only I am going from a SGM to maybe a 1LE. You think they will still be for sale in March?

why trade in a car you dont drive for a different car you wont drive?
it is obvious that your car has spent more time in the shop than on the road anyway, since you got it. Why would you need a track car? If this means that you will actually drive it then by all means trade in the dust collector for a vehicle.

2011 ss/rs with mods would be a hard sell at 36k retail.

I have all the papers ready to go and signed,if order is put in now i should have it by oct 15th as they arent even being built until sept 3rd, if i do demod im assuming i will get just reg trade in at 32k. Im a ase tech and all the mods i have done myself so i wont lose install money but im still unsure of what to do.

I wouldn't do it unless you plan to take the 1LE to the track.

Yep. $35,800 for yours? That is very hard to believe, even with you paying msrp for the 1LE. Did you miss a $1900 doc fee slipped in somewhere in the deal?

So you gonna answer the question? You gonna use it for the track and drive the car or just spend money to keep collecting dust? I mean my car is a garage queen, doesn't touch snow, avoid bringing it out in rain and I don't drive it to work but I got about 10,000 miles on it over the year from "spirited driving"... Not trying to bash you, just trying to help. It's a lot of cash if you're not gonna use the car.

i would prob take it to the track but im a mechanic days and firefighter/paramedic nights so the use of it is limited. I prob will hold off due to the fact wife is bugging about having a car payment for the same thing i basically have just 2 year newer.

Good call and after awhile you're gonna realize you made the right choice. You have a wonderful car and to lose so much money for a few upgrades isn't really worth it, unless you're a hard core racer... And every year something new comes out and people lose tens of thousands of dollars just to be in with the "new". Enjoy, you got a top of the line ss with a 6.2 v8.
