You'll have a tough time making it past tech with all that loose stuff in your car. You'd be better to lose it than loosen it.

I believe you answered your own question. Your test drive with a normal SS was close, but the 1LE clicks the whole package up a full notch.

If you're able to downshift prior to braking for the corner, you were in the wrong gear. The rest of #3 is so nonsensical I assumed you wrote it as a joke.
