I thin the spoiler is fine. They've finally got to a point where they need to use them for these cars to handle the crazy amount of HP. The gtr, viper, corvette, gt3-rs, huracan all have them.

Again, everyday I realize more and more how much of a dodge nutswingers ball this site seems to be sometimes. People here can't say enough cool things about the hellcat, yet this car is better and the same price. If there is a hillbilly car, it would certainly be the hellcat, not this. What cool Ford GT and F1 dampers does the hellcat have for the same price?
I swing from the Viper's Spoiler, I love the ACR. No compromise track performance. It is, and always will be a Track car.

I wouldn't enjoy it on the street, but I definitely would enjoy it on the track where it was built to run.

That's a good price for the performance you get , pretty much the same price as 425hp M3

I usually prefer ducktail style spoilers but this works for me to being a track car.

The Z28 used the PZero Trofeo R tires and all the magazine reviewers and journalists went bonkers that the Z28 pretty much has race only tires.

Im surprised too that GM didnt put better tires on the ZL1

It is supposedly a unique compound and pattern for the ZL1 but yeah, I absolutely hated the F1's on my GT500.

These are different tires than what you guys are thinking about.

I'd think that they aren't putting on better tires simply because the 1LE is probably getting pretty close to the Z06.

and supposedly this car will be able to do more than one lap at a time without overheating!

Jeff Gordon approves.

The Standard ZL1 did 7:29 at the Ring, so the 1LE should be in the 7:20 ish range.

Just give me a basic ZL-1. It's more than enough to have a ton of fun in.
