THAT! ^^^ :curry: :sofa: ...is why your ZT-T feels slow Martin.Ha ha!! I already have fast!!
My Escort is faster than my ZT and it's not even a proper Escort. More power and less weight though. It's as simple as that. The whole ZT power to weight deal really needs addressing though and i've felt this way since 2003. I was considering a 'Q' plate and a Chevrolet crate engine akin to the unit/s specified by Ultima for their GTR, on Holleys and with a cat-less exhaust for mine when I heard of the ludicrous road tax hike last year.
I'm still not sure what i'll do with mine.
We're lucky enough to have two ZTs here, so an aspirated set-up on one and a blower on the other would be great to see and use and is fairly inevitable.
Pie in the sky for now though as i'm still in the poor house and will be for another year and a half or so.
Anyway and more on topic, in spite of my Ford's swifter progress under some circumstances, it doesn't do 2nd gear corners in 4th gear and it doesn't go sideways in second gear in the dry either so I must have done something right in purchasing the green thing.
I am very much looking forward to seeing the development of your Zed Martin. I think the LS is a great idea. Very well done and i'm glad at least one of us has the funds to implement such an interesting plan.
