I didn't think about cold weather with the clutch - where I live we often get below 0 temps. I've definitely felt the clutch be "slow" in previous cars on extra cold days. I assume leaving the RBF600 would be ok even during winter though?
It's not really about how many times a year you track your car. It you're hotlapping the car, you will boil most DOT4 fluids and your brake pedal will feel "soft" which reduces confidence. I've had soft brake feel with Motul 660 towards the end of a session. I haven't had that issue with Castrol SRF.

Braking demands for your ZL1/1LE are likely a lot greater (heavier car, from faster speeds) than what Silent's V6/1LE can ever see. Just sayin'

Good point - I won't be reaching anywhere near the speeds a ZLE can!

The V6 1LE has mostly the same running gear (rear brakes are different) as the non-1LE SS but is just slower and a bit lighter.

Thanks all for your input!
