It'll definitely be a sight on the road!

I'm holding my thoughts in for now...I don't think we know enough about this, yet.

Besides...I'm starting to go barking-mad, as the brits would say, coming so close to the delivery day!!!

It could be they moved to a more aggressive pad to achieve the numbers...and since the car weighs less and has less power to reign in than a ZL1, it didn't need them? So...save the weight (and cost!!) of big, heavy calipers?

Just a pure, speculative guess.

If they really are targeting the Boss...it'll at the VERY least, match its performance. Of that I have the utmost faith.

Oh yes...that's without a doubt.

Unless....it is all a clever ploy to distract us from a distinct lack of deliveries...

How much do yall think the 0-60 and quarter mile times will improve with the 1LE?

Also, where do yall see where it says it's competing with boss LS?

I think times will improve a little...but it would appear that the 1LE focuses on serious track-skills rather than straight line speed.
