The Zaku in episode 1 of 8th MS Team is not a standard issued Zaku II. It's
a Zaku with Rick Dom leg doing data gathering. It won't surprise me that
the Zaku is underpower for using those leg and leg thrusters.

Both GP01-Fb and GP02a are running at maximum engine output level during
their fight. When both received blows that effectively disabled the control
on their engine, they both goes.
