After all the Z-28 was designed for sports track racing & good torque & acceleration coming out of the turns. Buy 1 size down to a 2.42 to 1 ring & piƱon gears & have it professional set up, backlash is very important! Your top-end will greatly improve, but low-end acceleration will suffer. An overdrive automatic transmittion could be a good mod too?
