New ZL1 1LE owner and track guy

Hi guys, I've been a lurker on this forum for a while and finally pulled the trigger yesterday. Had a great purchase experience with Three Way Chevrolet Cadillac. Thanks Dario, Mike and Carlos!

I will be putting the car on track as soon as possible. I already have over 500 miles on it over a two day period lol. The concerns regarding the harshness of the suspension is overblown in my opinion but I'm coming from a 987 Boxster Spyder and 991.1 GT3 so not use to a plush ride anyway.

The information here has been very helpful and looking to give back to the community when I can. I'm really looking forward to see what it can do on track.

Ben

Welcome aboard Ben! You're going to love it! I came over from Porsche and an active Rennlister also. You are lucky to have had a good dealership experience. Mine was and is so horrible that I would not consider a Chevy again but I digress. I hope to hear of your Sonoma,Thunderhill and MRLS experience.

Mike.

Thank you. Sorry to hear that Mike. Bay Area dealer? I had to purchase mine out of the area and got lucky. I'll definitely report back on the track experience with the car.

Man, I can't get over just how much better the stance is on the 1LE versus the normal ZL1. It just sits so much meaner.

Welcome to the club though!

Congratulations! I have the standard strength ZL1 but love it. Ultimately just sold the 2010 977.2 GT3. I wasn’t using it much with 650 HP sitting next to it.

A lot of GT3 owners seem to be converting!

Thanks. Have you put it on track yet? If so what do you think vs. your GT3?

The value proposition vs. a GT3 is too difficult to ignore haha. Hoping I love it on track.

Thought of leaving the brakes as is for the first track day but glad I changed the brake fluid last night. Very noticeable amount of air in the line. Switched to Endless RF-650. Tonight will be differential and engine oil/filter change. Shooting for Thunderhill Raceway Park this Friday.
