A Z is not a great handling car by any means. And mods don't make much of a difference to a Z car, they don't respond well at all.jumbojet said:other than a few misinformed Z owners(GTO only traps 106mph), most seemed pretty cool and even the thread starter was surprised at the outcome. First off the Z that pulled the LS2 GTO was bolt ons with CAMS! that would/should make things more interesting, especially if the Z owner can out drive the other guy. Maybe the GTO was in heatsoak which we know KILLS an LS2.
Look at veetec. He ran what a 13.3 with stock cams. i'm not sure what cams add to a Z ,but if it's anything like an LS2, it's a significant mod!
For the record I have never lost to a Z in a straight away. They do handle better than the GTo IMO, as I could not keep pace with one on the freeway in corners.
I would gladly run any bolt-on Z local to me...and I promise not to powershift the Goat..If you win free tank of gas on me!! No troll war intended. I do like the Z no doubt!!
