ZL1 vs ZL1 1LE Drag Racing

I'm in the market for a new ZL1 to keep my 68 company in the garage... I can't decide if I should get the 1LE package or not. I am aware it is more of a road racing suspension over the non-1LE version, but am curious if anyone can speak to its performance out of the hole.

I will not be buying the car to drag race at the track. Its going to be a street car. But I dont want it if its a dog out of the hole as compared to the non-1LE. If they are the same, I will go for the 1LE.

Also, will be getting the a10 trans.

Re: ZL1 vs ZL1 1LE Drag Racing

The ZL1 1LE is a really rough ride. Read some reviews. If you have no plans to track it, don't buy it. ZL1 is an absolute balls machine as it is and is perfect for street use.

Re: ZL1 vs ZL1 1LE Drag Racing

For 2020 it does not look like any difference of trans or rear gearing. Shouldnít be any different out of the hole.

1LE does have different dampers but it also has GoodYear Supercar tires. If I was not going to track the car and/or I didnít like the wing and splitter package I wouldnít get the 1LE.

My 2015 Z/28 rode like a brick and darted left and right following the road until I changed out the Trofeos. Bridgestone RE11s changed the car for sure.

I donít think your getting a luxurious ride with either model.
