This new Z/28 in my mind is an awesome build that was put together with a purpose in mind. Outside of my budget, but I surely appreciate what it is.
That is why I said what I a/c. There was not much of anything available except handling and reasonable speed. The Z was made to corner and win the T/A series. The 302 was way under-rated for power, the 290 was more like 350. It was no killer in a straight line but on a road corse it was awesome. The new one will do both.
