    Wow! What an incredible Z-car journey you've had these past 6 years or so. So much knowledge gained and shared. Are there plans for another Z in the future or are you moving on to something else.......

    140 in my Z-car back in the 1977-1982 period when I had a 331ci SBC in it. 140 was about 6250 rpm, about as fast as that small block would comfortably twist, even with the solid cam.

    These look great, and it's good to see 15" versions (instead of the original 14")...but a big problem is that we're running out of high-performance 15" tires. :(
