Rear wheel on the ls7 vettes is always 460 give or take a couple. That's with a shorter drivetrain and special rear transaxle. The Z28 will have less rwhp because of more shtuff to spin under there plus a longer (little heavier) driveshaft. And, it will be toting around several hundred lbs. I hope it isn't something dismal like 425 rear wheel - have a feeling that's what will be seen.
