It will never go away. Every review points it out and it is a compromise one has to make when buying the car. Does that mean that nobody should every buy a ZLE? No, not at all. But when you are comparing the ZLE to a car with similar or better track performance (GT500) and it does not have the same compromises on ergonomics and ride comfort it will be discussed.Conclusion; The ZLE bunker and stiff chassis/suspension argument needs to go away. My sarcastic comment implied that they have absolutely no negative impact on performance.
Especially on a Mustang forum. Many of us have driven the ZLE and passed on the car because of these issues. If I just wanted a track car I would buy a ZLE. I don't. I need daily driver that I can take to the track occasionally. I am guessing most buyers are much more like me (or never go to the track).
Going back to the Throttle House review it's why three of the four people picked the GT500. People buy cars for lots of reasons beyond tenths of a second on a track.
The one thing that keeps drawing me to the ZL1 /ZL1 1LE is the manual transmission. Kudos to GM for still offering that.
