I wont either. ive had my SS for 4 years and I only have 7900 on it...... drive the shit out of it...just don't do it every day. and if I needed a daily driver, I would pick a Z28. id get something that suited my lifestyle more. id get a z28 as a toy car.

The 1le does not wiegh 300lbs less and come with an ls7! Really just depends on what the car is gonna go for anyway. The 1le or Zl1 just does not make me feel like I would ever want to trade up. This does, buts its a pipe dream if its a 75k car anyway. 50k I can see myself doing on a used one in a few years, but Only time will tell were this is truely gonna go when it hits the street!

I like a lot of people are missing the little important piece of information.


I don't care about the brakes. The biggest concern I have is busting up that splitter as low as it is.

Granted I havent priced the exact brakes, but I have bought tons of car parts in my life time, and 10k for a brake job sounds like the biggest load of bullshit ive ever heard.

I drove the Richard Petty driving experience last summer and they took us a tour of the garage while waiting for rain to pass. They had a Ferrari on the lift doing a brake job. they said it cost $25,000 for that. Maybe you haven't been around many exotic parts like the brakes on the Z/28.

When you buy a car you take into account maintenance costs. If i do buy one you can bet i will drive it like i have every car i have ever owned. Track and street.

Hell, if i do then my SS will be a straight up drag car and nothing more. WIN.

You can find easily complete new rotors/hats at $1,298 each, front pads at $535 and rears for $398 and someone posted yesterday on this forum they have seen rotors as little as $950 each. And the Brembo Carbon/Ceramic discs are projected to last almost indefinetly, at least 100,000 under normal use. This is all based on ZR1 data.

The carbon rotors also last a long long long time.

Brembo has their act together on these things.

My question about the brakes would be, do they need to be heat cycled to work well. I read that some racing type pads need to have heat before they work right.

This wouldn't be good for a DD if that's the case as your stopping distance may not be that good.

I would assume they would be the same pads that are on the carbon Vette brakes. Plenty of OEM's are running carbon brakes that were R&D'd on the Ring, I don't see why there would be an issue, never been one before.
