Why canít you with some 4Sís. Itís nothing more than a Camaro.

It has the 4s's on it now but I don't want to have to clean the underside of the car if it gets driven in the rain. I have done it once on my 2013 zl1 and it took 8 hours

its bad enough that I wipe it down when its on the four post for winter storage

I commited to the program

I broke down and got the manual 1LE! I picked it up in Northern VA. I survived the ride around the DC beltway and made it back to the Eastern Shore and smoother roads.

If you've ever driven a car with coilovers, the ZL1 1LE is exactly like that.
Swapped all my suspension parts on my prior car a 17 SS 1LE to everything BMR offers and the ride was similar too my ZL1 1LE.
If you can avoid potholes, even the rough roads are very livable in the ZL1 1LE.
I've put nearly 6500 miles on mine in 4 months of ownership and I've loved EVERY mile, including an awesome track day at Nelson's Ledges.

I would agree with this.

Here is how I look at it...

Before I got my SS 1LE, I have a 16' M3 with Ohlin coilovers and when I went to test drive the ZL1 1LE, the ride quality was a bit better than the Ohlins. While the damping was amazing in the M3, there was a big penalty over big bumps, and often would find my butt out of the seat and my head into the headliner, great if you are always alone and don't mind that, but passengers tend to not like that much.

I ended up going with the SS 1LE for cost reasons (tires, gas, insurance) considering I would hardly ever be on a track. Fast forward 1 year of ownership and as a only car, I do not think I would want to endure that penalty any longer. I have test driven 2 ZL1 1LE's since having the SS 1LE and could not imagine doing that on a daily basis anymore. Although, no matter the ride quality , one tends to get used to it and just accepts it over time.

The MRC spoils you and is very much dual purpose, while the DSSV's are one dimensional and very track oriented. Could I still live with it, probably, but I choose not to for a daily driver. My daughter thanks me and any passengers (that are not hard core enthusiasts) thank me.

The ride quality is pretty good IMO. I am glad I made the switch to the ZL1 1LE. I may have felt a few bumps, but the ride and handling is unbelievable. That is a good trade off for me. I spent about 3 hrs getting back from Tyson's Corner Va, and felt fine. I stopped to hit the restroom but the rest was all seat time. I noticed on the smooth roads, it does ride like on rails.

I would save the stock GYer's for the track.

I swapped my tires to the PS4S before taking delivery of the car at the dealer. These tires have helped reduce the 'harshness' of the suspension.

That being said, I brought a world beating sports car not a comfy Cadillac.

Good call. Hopefully in a couple of months I can buy the Michelins and make the swap. That is on thing I wished I had thought of at the dealer.
