So the 1le has the same power plant as the SS LS3. How does it pick up the quicker 0-60 and quarter mile times.? Is it the suspension tuning? What is the rear end ratio is it 3:45:1 ?

Nice video ... Dual mode does sound great.

I'd be willing to bet a big part of the better 0-60 time was the wider rear tires on the 1LE vs stock SS. I'm sure the gearing helps also, but I'd bet mainly the tires

The 3:91 final drive is just as big of a factor

I must say that I'm slightly envious of the 1LE. I had to piece together my SS part my part and i'd wager I'm at best about even with what your cars are capable of. At only $3500 over the price of an SS its definitely the performance bargain of the century.

yea the 3.91's coming stock have a ton to do with the 1/4 mile times. quite a few SS owners have already swapped thier 3.45's out with the OEM 3.91's, or went the route i am going and just swapping the diff's with the 1le diff

Pretty impressive. The engineers did some serious work with these car. I would be interested to see Randy run the ZL1 on that track. The 1LE will be a beast with a LS7 if that ever comes to fruition.

It does. The same launch control the non 1LE SS has. It's most likely calibrated differently.

Alright, that's it. I've watched every other video and read every other article. I'm in - now I just have to figure out a way to make it happen. It is the performance bargain of the century And there's a red 1LE 2SS showing up at a local dealer here shortly - I probably shouldn't take it for a test drive lol
