If your ZR1 was a manual do you think you would have sold it? Other than the transmission, you prefer the ZR1 or ZLE?

Congrats!!!

Only difference in our cars is the Camera you have in the shark fin. Really wish I had that for the track.

I just got a second set of OEM wheels and put PS4s on them. If I ever wear them out I'll go back with 3Rs and have extras at the track. I really like the 3Rs and not doing that much street driving anyway. They do take a couple laps to get warmed up which is why not so good on the street but they are damn good after that.

Not sure I would even mess with a ported TB but you're going to like AWE for sure.

Strongly doubt I would have sold it if it was manual. The car is SO damn sexy. I really liked it and would consider buying a manual in the future.

I’m 6’2” 220lbs and the Camaro is more comfortable to me (I had comp seats in the zr1). Also the Camaro just FEELS better. Hard to explain. I’m sure it’s subjective, but I just REALLY like how the alpha feels and handles.

I’d also like to track this car fairly often and I was a little uneasy about that idea with the ZR1. The car is VERY expensive (for me at least).....and was so pretty I was afraid of the wear and tear from track events.

Very nice looking ZR1 and photos. I can understand that feeling of unease racing the ZR1; I wouldn't want to race it either. ZLE looks good too in Crush, not a common color.

All the above plus I'm 6'4 270 pounds, The Zl1 feels just right !

LOL... I'd wager a large sum of money that THIS describes at least HALF of the people on this forum...

LOL, Yeah, I know that one better than most that's for sure.

When it's a nice girl that has marked potential that deep down you really want, you'll find the reason (and the cash) to get in her.

You should know by now, every time you change girls, your wallet empties. So the least we can all do it congratulate you on your new "CRUSH", LOL
