Do you think the Z will continue to be competitive in T3 with the downgrade the 245?
The DE-powered Zs will be competitive, but the 40 mm chokes added to the HRs are going to severely limit power. The biggest problem with the 245 tires, as I see it, is the durability of the rubber will be decreased. R-compound tires will have fewer heat cycles and grip than what we've come to expect from the 275s we were on. Both DE and HR Zs will have to roll over the scales at 3300# AFTER the race. Nothing you can't adjust to coming into the class, however.
