I would think with a wider front wheel and tire the Z should be able to enter with and carry more speed through the corner as long as everything is dialed in properly. That being said, he's got a...

Well that is interesting. Hopefully someone will shed some light on it for you. My best guess though is its a fuel economy and emissions factor. Perhaps also tied to catalyst health.
