I'm still debating if I should wait until tomorrow to pick it up when it stops raining . On the other hand I really want it at my house and the wife is going out of town tomorrow so she won't be able to see it until Saturday. It's about a 30 mile drive from the dealership. I can take the back roads and just drive carefully and slow.

Just got a call from the dealership. Says my car is near Baltimore, and that's only 100 miles from the shop. I just may get my car by the weekend! Btw, i bought a set of SS wheel and tire combo, complete with sensors, for cold weather, from another Camaro owner on this site. He gave me a sweet deal,so thanks Joe!

1LE Delivery Day First Impressions

Ok she now has just over 40 miles on her and I wanted to give an impression for you guys that are still waiting. I must say it feels weird writing this instead of reading it. For a background to explain where my impressions come from I have owned 2 4th Gens, and infiniti, and just traded in a newer GMC Sierra. So quite a range for comparison.

The first thing that I noticed is NPP exhaust. It sounds absolutely amazing!!! Had the loudest flowmaster they make on my truck so love LOUD exhausts. Wasnt sure if the factory performance exhaust would do the trick, but it is AMAZING!!!! Definately an amazing sound, and I will never replace that with aftermarket.

Second thing I noticed, and was extremely surprised by is the electronic power steering. It is real loose and easy at slow speeds, which makes it an absolute dream in city driving. As soon as the MPH's go up though it tightens up and just like Cornerspeed said, 'It feels like a go kart!'. It feels nimble, light, and small, and all the things it should not feel like.

As far as my impressions on the appearance in person go....ITS BEAUTIFUL!!!! The pics and vids do nothing for this car. When you see it in person you will literally lose your breath. Even the stance, which I myself have said it looks like it rides high, looks better in person. I havent posted pics because she is dirty and the weather is awful but I will as soon as I can I promise.

Oh! I almost forgot to mention that the one fear I had was if the ride comfort would be ok for a DD. My fears were immediately dashed on the test drive. It is direct and firm, but at the same time very smooth and confortable. I love this thing!!!

Glad our group now has troops on the ground! I go to "closing" GM term on Monday. I have a feeling the car hits the dealership tomorrow.

Congratz guys and thanks for sharing.... keeps us going!

Pick it up! This car makes you drive with confidence. Forget the back roads & slow. All this talk about the tires, just drive it!!!

[QUOTE=CrystalRedTintcoat;5880721]Seriously? Is that part of Al Oppenheiser saying they aren't putting too much of the patch down in the rear?

"The reason (we stretched the same sized zl1 front tire on an 11" rear wheel) is that this is a track car. And for track you don't necessarily want to push that tire patch down by having downforce or too much grip in the back. It's contrary to trying to fix the understeer. We wanted to loosen up the slip and allow you to ring this thing out because in competitive mode this thing is a track car."

As a retired superbike racer i know only TOO well about heat in you're tires,i hit the ground a few times cause i was impatient,and it was time to go it's time to share so here is a cool pic,ok so back to the subject.These Goodyears are the bomb,so once the warmth(spring summer) comes back and im on the track i will have all the confidence in the them,just not on the street,but thats not what their made for. I mean that video of the sub 3 min. video at VIR you dont get that superb grip unless the tires rock!

PS, in that pic im at 130mph, just exiting turn# 8(Willow Springs) from 150 mph, knee firmly planted on the ground,thats where my final crash was, never made turn #9 some idiot decided to turn in on me, and take my front out. Anyway the point of this watch out my fellow 1LERS these tires are awesome when heat is in them,but we really cant get the heat in them that we need unless we are on the track and a couple laps under our belt,cant wait.

I just got home and it is finally in my drive-way about to go into the garage after my friend comes over to check it out. I've put about 50 miles on it so far(It had 15 when I picked it up). It is an amazing machine. I'm pretty confident everyone one of us will love their car. You here so much about how the 1LE feels like it's on rails and it does. The only complaint I have is my truck now feels under powered and clumsy. Pics real soon. Either tonight or tomorrow evening.
