Supercharged 1LE vs. ZL1?

I was really just curious on what the bench racers thought?

I haven't honestly researched all of the suspension differences on the 1LE vs. ZL1. Say you put a comparable supercharger on the 1LE and put it up against the ZL1 on a road course? On the drag strip?

This is a hypothetical question so take it easy on me guys.

The 1LE track times aren't 'too' far off the ZL1 right?

From what I have read, the ZL1 still has a better suspension over a stock 1LE so on a track the ZL1 may have a slight edge. On a drag strip the 1LE may have a slight edge because it is lighter, again assuming ZL1 is stock and the 1LE has a "basic" SC...

If you give both the ZL1 and 1LE some 315 DR's but give the 1LE the same supercharger set up that the ZL1 is using the 1LE with a ZL1 blower and custom tuning would easily beat the ZL1 on a drag strip with equal drivers. The difference in power would come from the compression of the LS3. The power difference would be pretty big in favor of the 1LE with ZL1 blower plus it would still be a little lighter. IDK about the road course that would be a question for someone else.
