I don't get why an SS Camaro would be included in "The World's Greatest Drag Race". A Z06 or ZL1 would be better suited to that I would think.

Somehow felt the Camaro didn't belong in that race.

Yeah, the race is fun to watch, but makes no sense given what the 1LE is purposed to do and the price point it's sitting in. I think it's actually the cheapest car on the field by 18k? With the 350R being the next closest in price (and still not a drag racer either).

Will need to see again with the ZL1 for the Camaro

Last, but did you see what it ran against lol...supercar city.

Cool thing is, even with that crap launch, on a terrible service it still ran the same time as Motor Trends lighter 1SS they tested on an actual drag strip. So I see these cars running 12.2's with a better surface...or better.

More and better rubber and maybe the eLSD helping some? (though don't know how much it assists in wheel spin on takeoff) I'd like to see the front and rear wheel/tire weighed against the 1SS and 1SS 1LE to see what was gained/lost in rotating mass.

Well the SS 1LE weight is about 50 pounds more than a 1SS, so I am thinking it's the wider, stickier, non run flat rubber. The eLSD is more so for pulling out of a corner/turn so I don't really see that helping off the line movement really.

Guess I was thinking about more managed and smarter control over wheel spin/slippage outside of just multi channel brakes and throttle.

The worlds greatest drag race is all the cars from Best Drivers Car. The 1LE was in BDC, so it's part of the race.

Looked like a shitty launch to me.
