PS it looks awesome!!!
Since they are the same brakes as the 1LE and the ZL1, wouldnt they preform the same other than maybe tire grip helping out some?

SS 1LE has smaller pads and rotors vs the other two.

I was unaware of this. Are you sure? Pretty sure we can all use the same pads available...

Nvm I was wrong. Rotors are bigger, still trying to research pads.

Looks like SS 1le brakes are same as z06 and ats-v though for sure

The front calipers are different (though also 6 piston) and the rear has the same calipers with smaller rotors AFAIK.

Rear calipers have different internal dimensions between J6M (SS 1LE) and J6H (ZL1). Rotors are thicker and larger OD on the ZL1 both front and rear.

How do you like it compared to the SS 1LE? I'm on the fence of trading up later in the year on one but not sure if it's worth the extra $ if it drives pretty much same as the SS 1LE and the only noticeable difference is power.

It's an entirely different animal. I'm in love.

With that said, it's a shitty streetcar and the SS 1LE is worlds better if you plan to drive it on the street much.

Sean,

You wouldn't happen to have the part #'s for OEM ZL1 1LE wheels and TPMS handy would you?

Thanks in advance.

I don't have the part numbers, sorry. TGMPG is where I ordered the stuff though.

Sorry, the Z is a neighbor so I don't have any picture handy.
