Thank you for your service, and may God continue to keep you safe.
Another shift pattern for you to explore is the 1-3-5. Because the Camaro has such high torque, this shift pattern is easy to do without lugging the engine. I use it in residential areas and other times when high acceleration isn't desired. Other members on this site use this shift pattern, too.
