As another user noted, you bought the ZL1 1LE which was designed to be a track car that can be driven on the street. When you buy a car with actual aero, you should expect...

I want to say some cars are legal in street classes with their factory tires that are below 200 tw. I've never been affected by it, so I can't for sure though.

I can tell you that there is an argument to be made that the turbo 1LE is the best Camaro for Autox. It's hard for the V8s to make up for the extra weight over the front axel.

Though any Camaro...

I'm a fan of square setups, if for nothing else, you can rotate the tires.

My 2.0t has a totally different balance from the SS 1LE, but it is a very well balanced car with square 305s. A couple of...

They're quite new still, so it's likely no one would have much, if any, experience on them. I have the a/s 3+ as my daily wheels and am very happy. The a/s 4 came on the C8, so I can only imagine...

I typically think of the BFGs as being the preferred for hot weather, the Yoks for colder climates, and the RE-71s somewhere in the middle.

Mine seem to be very close, at least within 1 PSI. Close enough for daily driving. I don't have sensors in the autox wheels since I'd be checking those with a gauge anyway.

That may be at cost to them. Looking at the GM Part Center online, the turbo is $864, and at ZZP it's $500 (may be rebuilt). The turbo lag is pretty significant, so I can see where it would make a...
