well..yeah...I get that. But in locking out 2nd since you're already shifting that way, the normal reaction would be to shift to 4th. My friends GTO locked out 2nd but you could still shift in to 3rd. I guess they changed it?

I don't believe the ZL1 will be using the "Skip Shift" ... It is used with the LS3 to avoid the GG tax.

But for what it's worth the skip is a non issue with the LS3 if you keep the RPM up a bit. I think I've hit it maybe a half dozen times in two years due to traffic. You can also double clutch to avoid it ...

Oh, and it would appear that ZL1 has a huge combination of chassis controls....

You can turn Stabilitrac & Traction Control Off, On, or just Stabilitrac On...

You can select MR Tour or Sport in any of the above modes...

And you can enter PTM, which gives you 5 more tailored settings for the track.


BMW eat your heart out! J.K.


EDIT: No mention of no-lift shift, though....unless I missed it...

Don't forget to save this onto your iPhone or iPad. A digital manual is better than the physical one

ZL1=Auto transmission=many left-out options! For one thing it does not have launch control,next it doesn't have the ability to shift to 1st after the first start and after that it starts out in 2nd. Replace the hard to reach buttons with paddles cause those buttons are harder than hell to find when turning the wheel! I'm surprised the test drivers have not complained about the little buttons when going around a corner!
This auto transmission deal looks like it was taken out of a truck and just slapped in the car just so it could be sold with an auto trans. My opinion Chevy screwed up this option
and needs to reprogram the computer to down shift too 1st in setting 5.

You know there are NO SHIFT BUTTONS on the ZL1 - it has Shift Paddles. And, the transmission (A6) has been tricked out to stay in the torque RPM range automatically when slowing down so there is no delay. I LIKE IT!

And you don't have to remember...it won't let you. It physically locks out 2 & 3rd gears.
same as the manual "ss"...un less you have it tuned (like mine) and it turns that aspect off,

I'm with you Blake. I would love to see some firmware additions. I got a few ideas myself.

Thanks ShnOmac. I'll have this on the night stand. (Maybe even the coffee table-lol) Can't wait to read it through.

So I was curious about cleaning due to the air extractor. And I found This on section 10-98. 'Protecting Exterior Bright Metal Parts
Regularly clean bright metal parts with water or chrome polish on chrome or stainless steel trim,
if necessary.'

Is this just a general statement. Because the only stainless steel part on the car was on the Carbon fiber edition spoiler? With everything I have been reading about gm trying to get more carbon fiber parts main stream on more of their vehicles. I am really hoping the carbon fiber edition comes out.

The exhaust tips are also stainless steel.

I hardly saw mine in the GTO when it was enabled. GM introduced it in the late 80's or early 90's under CAGS or Skip Shift.
