"The converter coil carries a low gauge because the impulse fusework on the entire machine is only rated for a 1000z buildup. My method gets extra speed, but risks shorting out the whole system."
―General Airen Cracken, on his procedure for increasing the speed of turbothrust-enhanced landspeeders[src]

The z was a unit of measurement in use during the Galactic Civil War that described the amount of buildup the impulse fusework of a landspeeder could maintain. A landspeeder capable of turbothrust could safely tolerate a 1000z buildup. The manufacturers would install low gauge turbothrust converter coils to prevent them from exceeding that amount. Rebel General Airen Cracken thought to exchange these for larger gauge versions from more powerful machines, increasing the craft's top speed. However, this procedure would allow the machine to surpass its intended buildup limit, possibly disabling the craft. Cracken himself totaled two speeders this way.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

The z unit was mentioned in Cracken's Rebel Field Guide, a 1991 in-universe supplement to Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game written by Christopher Kubasik.
