Sniper,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,if you consider that the 1LE is purely a repackaged SS, reinvented primarily for track purposes, visibility in of itself can't be a negative....that is,so long you're moving forwards, looking forwards and the competition is always behind you. Thats a postive Great review...............

Yes and well worth the effort!! I think a lot of the 1le owners' swag is that we drive these cars not just ride in them.

Swag stands for Stuff We All Got. But it's now used by douchebags and tools to present themselves.

Primarily douches, of course not implying that Tramtwo is one. Because I'm sure he isn't but that's the group that uses it. Same group that uses YOLO.

....also less HP so likely puttin the power to the ground gives the FEEL of better handling and possibly ACTUAL better handling as it responds better/faster/easier.....etc

I agree gotta be the weight difference. I would think the MR on a 1LE would make it even better, but also more $$$$.

Awesome review and what an awesome sound! I really want one in red....or black. Best deal for a new car you can take to the track and still drive it home after.
