It's very encouraging for me to hear such a good review from a ZL1 owner. I had my doubts about this car, but I'm quickly becoming a believer.

Excellent review. Thanks for the great write up. Still planning on getting an SS, however. We're still thinking about a convertible.

Great read. My 2010 SS will soon be a 1LE copy (albeit heavily modded) when I get those 3.91 installed! Honestly, had I known of the 2013 1LE back in 2010, I don't think I could have waited this long to get my car. But enough coulda-woulda-shoulda.

The "competition's" Track Pac (aka Boss 302) doesn't stack up to the Camaro 1LE (even to the SS). The Mustang's main failing is its brakes. I was at the SCCA NW Regional event this year and talked to a competitor running a brand new, trailered Boss 302. He was fast, no doubt about it (he was running new 315R18 Hoosier A6 slicks all around versus my staggered Toyo R888). He admitted that the greatest failing of the Mustang (even the GT500) are its brakes. You get the same puny rear brakes across the board. He said that he can't get one hot lap around a track without completely loosing his brakes.

Nice write up. OP you are in marketing?

Don't worry about the ride. If you dig the handling it is a small price to pay. You will be driving a shark among the minnows.

Great write up Joe. I especially like hearing your point of view being a ZL1 owner it makes you uniquely qualified to note the differences between the two.

Well Joe, an excellent write up once again. A distinct, clear description of the 1LE package. It's many advantages and few concessions. It also clearly tells me that I made the correct choice when I purchased the ZL1. Although the Z was considerably more money, it is still considerably more car than the 1LE. The 1LE will be a great car for a lot of people but as good as the package is, can you imagine how much better it would be if you could check a option box for: 7.0 LITER, LS7 505HP ENGINE.

Well done, but you have to get me an invitation to these GM Media Events. If nothing else, at least a shirt.
Walk softly, carry a light saber and drive a ZL1!
