If you want a drag car that is what the COPO was built for. The Z/28 was built for the less straight track.
The Z/28 is being built for fast drivers, and 300 lbs is not the only advantage. The Z/28 also has less unsprung rotating weight on the axles so it takes less hp to get rolling. It probably has better aerodynamics. But then it's SPECIFICALLY designed and configured for road course so whatever it may do in the 1/4 is a dining table statistic and of no real interest to its intended market.
