I am curious to see how the cars stack up in the real world, no magazine numbers just any experience of how the boss holds up against them.
I ran with a ZL1 (briefly) at Brainerd International Raceway in May. He was just learning so it wasn't a fair comparison. I was running about 10-15 seconds faster until my engine wiring harness started shorting out ending my weekend very early. They're really BIG and I think tip the scales at 4100+ lbs so I'm not surprised you don't see many of them on track. I'm guessing you'd be more likely to see the new Z28s once they start shipping later this year.Black_LS said:I am curious to see how the cars stack up in the real world, no magazine numbers just any experience of how the boss holds up against them.
Z20WHAT said:I predict Z28, considering its limited production and price point above the ZL1 (before any dealer markups), will certainly be a unicorn in the DE world...
Z20WHAT said:I haven't seen final production numbers on the first year 1LE yet, but I suspect there were fewer of those built than in either year of 'new' BOSS production, maybe by as much as half!

Stock to stock on most road courses with driver talent being equal, our cars are underdogs to all three. Put a set of sticky set of 285s all around on your BOSS though, and that should be the cure for the 1LE with nothing else required. Might need to dig a little deeper to get around the ZL1 and certainly the Z/28 (if you ever see one). FRPP CJ intake, cams and tune along with some suspension mods should do it. Ford Racing should make a kit as their 'remedy' for the Z/28. We know they can do it (BOSS 302SX or the red '12 BOSS they had at VIR earlier this year)...

I was at Autobahn in my 2013 Boss with MVP for both of their track days this summer and didn't see a single new generation Camaro either. I did enjoy passing M3's....they seem very popular there! I would like to have a z/28 parked in my garage next to my Boss, but I think the $60K price before ADM will keep me away. And when people start comparing the Boss to the new z/28 all I can think of is how would the Boss compare after someone added $15K in mods to get its price comparable to the z/28 (or the ZL1 for that matter).On Monday will be participating in my sixth track day this year at Autobahn CC, Joliet IL. and so far haven't seen any LZ1 or 1LEs'. For that matter typically very few if any Camaros ever show up. The few that have fade quickly in my rear view mirror. Will be interesting to see if that changes when the Z28 comes out and if any owners are willing to track them.
