You're asking to be spoon-fed instead of putting in few clicks worth of effort to read. At this point you've made your bed.

I'm actually wondering why he's not looking into a Viper ACR, or a Stohr WF1. Something actually quick. Why bother with all this production car stuff?



Hey, he did ask for all advice.

The primary reason is to reduce the heat in the front calipers and rotors during track sessions. Stopping distances don't usually change from the brakes once the brakes are powerful enough; that's...

You don't have enough camber in front, full stop.

Also, cold pressures below 30psi require a delicate but deliberate touch to heat up the tire to get the pressure up mid 30's, or you'll roll over...

My initial hunch is my feedback will be something like they work just as great but don't get as hot. That's really all I'm looking for, an incremental durability improvement.

Oh! So how does it drive?

The ZL1 brakes feel very similar to the SS 1LE in terms of pedal feel, stiffness, and travel. This makes sense in my head as Brembo & GM changed the piston bore sizing...

You mean 14.6" for the SS 1LE front rotor. Everything else is correct. The ZL1 rotors are also slightly thicker, and the front ZL1 rotors are "kangaroo paw" instead of the SS 1LE's directional vane...

I wish these videos would have more than 2 seconds of actual content. Jump to 6:44 to see the actual installed shape. Barely more effective than the factory splitter.

^^^Thank you! That verifies it's one rear spring for all FE3 coupe configurations.

Also, 23382416 has been replaced by 84084729, making it the same rear damper pair as the SS FE3.

Interesting, MrFixxit just posted in the classifieds that same part number as a non-MRC FE3, so perhaps it's used on both dampers. It wouldn't surprise me in the least.

250F is on the low side for the LT1/LT4 in terms of on-track oil temps. Don’t worry about it, synthetic oil works perfectly fine there. The SS 1LE’s with their recommended 5W-40 run about 270F and...
