Thanks! Perhaps some vids will be made someday with the Z/28...

The problem with that idea is that the Z/28 was built for use at the track. I'm betting that the CC brakes are necessary to avoid overheat/fade on a 3800lb car with 500hp. If you want consistent, fade free brake performance on a heavy car with lots of power, you need the CC brakes. Take a look at the GT500. Overheats at laguna seca after only one lap.

Maybe an R package for the 1LE? R package would include: ZL1 front brakes, diff cooler, Z/28 shocks, splitter & spoiler.

Whats the point in CC brakes being optional? The point is, it can use the weight reduction, lower CG, and RPM advantage to dive into corners, maintain a line, and pull away. The breaks are key there.
