it's usually just used to replace the ZS. Weber sidedrafts are supposedly 
difficult to set up (or rather, require an experienced hand) and are 
considered more of a racing option, for motors that have been otherwise 
tweaked. I think this sums up the general attitude, but I'm awaiting 
spirited rejoinders from various partisans...
