I don't know... While I'd agree the weight savings and extra grip would definitely improve ZL1's time, like it looks like you're alluding to, heat could be a problem with at least the SC and shocks. They'd have to recalibrate for those cool new shocks, too. Still, they are saying Z/28 is 300-pounds lighter; that's a lot.

I hope we see some times soon!
