No console gauges?

Can someone explain why the Z/28 will not have the console gauge cluster standard? Seems to me a track ready car needs gauges to keep an close eye on oil pressure and whatnot when you're running really hard, hot, and running through the gears a lot.

because no one on a track would look down there if they had any sense.

all of the data will be in the new colored HUD

Unless I missed it, the HUD seems to be gone as well.

Was wondering the same thing, but i guess its because the z/28 is supposed to represent the no frills race car, and i guess thats an extra frill
