Would a 1SS with BMR springs/sways/trailings arms + bushings/toe rods beat a 1LE?

The title says it all, but I'm wondering if the suspension components mentioned would match/beat a 1LE on a track? This is mainly aimed at those with experience with 1LE's and/or suspension-upgraded SS's. I know the gearing is different between the two models, I'm strictly talking handling here. Thanks!

No. Wheel/tire, monotubes, and upgraded rear sway setup would still spank you.

A few key bushings, FE4 spec sway bar conversion, and a wheel and tire upgrade will take care of the handling portion.

Yup, a lot is driver, I've spanked a few GTR's and boss 302's with nothing more than wheels springs and sways. I know that a good driver behind the wheel of either of those cars and I'd be way behind.... But I'm working on the car and my skills to try and hang!

There are only two options in life. Fight or flight. Most people run. Almost all people run. But not us. The difference between us and everyone else is that we run towards the gunfire. And that makes all the difference.

I'm agreeing with Synner. Both drivers being equal the 1le will put a beat down. Mainly wheels and tires.
