Thanks! Good eye, wow! You are the first person to notice that. I actually took the fronts off because they were pretty beat up and also so that I could wrap the lower section of the side sills in carbon fiber. I tried to also remove the rear mud flaps/splash guards, but the dealership I got it from painted right over them when they repainted the bumpers so there was no way to remove them without cracking the paint.

So I have been planning to eventually upgrade the rear rotors to the Z1 2pc. units and they are on sale right now, but still pretty pricey at $583 and that is only in the "sprinkle slot" configuration which is not the same as the front 2pc. Z1 rotors I have in the "slotted" set up. I am trying to justify the cost, as they only save 5 lbs/side. I am leaning toward getting another Sparco seat on the passenger side instead.

Anyone have the Z1 2pc. rear rotors? Did you notice much difference? I noticed with the front 2pc. that save twice the weight that it seemed to accelerate just ever so slightly better.

It has remarkably good handling (especially for a sedan) and great steering which are both probably due to it's 370Z chassis and suspension. The issue is power on the straights. There are so many cars with 700-1,000+ hp now that the cars I catch in the corners pass me on the straights. At least this is the issue with Road America due to its number of long straights because it was built back in the 1950's when 100 hp was a lot.
