Looks decent actually.

The improvements listed on the '19 seem perfect for a track rat. Cheaper brake replacements, more negative camber, and additional tru downforce. If I needed one car to do it all under 70k, this would be tempting.

Not crazy about the ZX10R tachometer, but that is a minor thing... The rest looks good to me though.

Loved it. Test drove one back to back with a new ZL today.

Felt surprisingly sharper and lighter than I expected for such a large heavy car. It doesn't rival a pure sports for handling and feel but it was much better than I came in expecting. Steering surprisingly good feedback. Minimal body roll. Direct and predictable suspension feel. Obviously the engine was incredible, power delivery sublime, sound ungodly.
