Same here!

I had a 2SS and now a 2SS 1lE, and there is a world of difference in daily driving. The two suspensions behave differently not just at 10/10 but at most dynamic situations. It's true...

Almost bought one exactly like that back in the day... with the Corvette hood scoop like the pic and a "6-pack" underneath it, except it was white.

I largely agree, but you have to do your marketing around significant product announcements, which are mostly past for the gen 6.

I had a 2SS A8 with MRC & NPP which I DD'ed... just traded it in for a 2SS 1LE and couldn't be happier! I have no issues using it as daily... but I don't have to commute very far.

5th gen rims fit ok but tires will tub against front suspension.

I think the SS is a chassis with much better potential than the Evo. I have no doubt that the 1LE is heads & shoulders above my moded Evo. I definitely believe my 2SS with the 1LE suspension kit will...
