never mind, the tubing goes from the filler/catch can? to the air silencer. Could see it better when I zoomed in.

It would still benefit from a catch can between the valley and intake. That is where the majority of the oil ingestion occurs.

Running the fresh air side through the oil filler... looks like they are just providing a place for oil to fall back into the valve cover. Maybe there are some high G, high rev situation where that right valve cover fresh air PCV pipe is getting flooded with oil. Instead of pushing it up to the intake, it can fall back into the oil filler.

High speed left hand sweepers?

Nice! Did anyone else notice that the 0-60 and quarter mile times are a bit quicker than the standard SS and different from what it says in the sales brochure???

I had suspected this with the different gear ratios and slightly shorter tires.

Glad they liked it after a whole week of driving it on the roads as well as a track.

Same engine as the SS, just different trans and rear end gearing.

Yes, i know this. But i was just wondering if GM might have adjusted the tuning parameters. It seems to me that the SS pulls more timing than other cars when IAT temps rise which hurts track perforamce. That is why i am curious if the 1LE differs or not?

Every time i read a new review i get more excited about this car. I cannot wait for those of you that have placed orders to start posting reviews.

I thought this car was to get magnetic ride suspension. I must have been dreaming.

The concept had it along with the ZL1 brakes, but that would have added too much to the price.

Stickier tires could make a bit of a difference in 0 to 60 times... you know, getting out of the hole quicker like when we were in high school.

For the bucks...clearly the best 5th Gen yet. Did anyone see the comparo with the ZL1 against the Beamer 6 series convertibles. Dang....12.7 is the best they could do with the ZL, but they chose the Camaro as the better car.

Not only that but it's a track car and I don't think the mag suspension is race legal. It kinda defeats the purpose of a track car you can't race.
