Eh, with enough motor you can pull anything down the track. I'd rather have a nice car that can still play on the street than a rail.
The Z/28 could easily be the best of both worlds. Two packages: big brake/wheel/high end road course suspension, or small brake/wheel/drag strip oriented suspension. They could keep both in the same price range but have different setups. I know this wouldn't happen in a million years but it could be easily done. I can't see that taking away from what they are trying to accomplish with the Z/28.
