I hear ya. My '10 SS felt like I was driving on ice at 140. ZL1 feels planted. I read somewhere that the SS has something like 200 lbs of negative downforce at that speed. Glad I didn't know that last year.

The first day I had my ss back in june 2010. I opened it up to 148mph. I can say it was floaty. Alignment and the narrow front wheel and lack of down force contributed the that feel. Since then with my 1le suspension and square setup have gone to 130mph and the floatly feel is gone but adding Hood vents you will definitely get that planted feeling.

After another thread talking about the 1LEs being limited. I pulled up hp tuners and look.

My factory stock 1LE is not limited to 155.
