LOL.. just saw this one earlier... Tapshift on the back of the steering wheel will always be worthless especially on a road track.

What I did like to see was the firmer shifting and what is sure to be a much tighter tuned transmission than the SS. Makes me go hummmm

I agree, that's why I developed the tapshifter.

That's cool but.. that top speed can't be right.. can it? Only 184? Isn't the ss about 175?

I believe Ferrari placed their paddles on the new 458 Italia in a similar position and received some ridicule but their reasoning was that a driver SHOULD NOT be changing gears during a turn...

I know on roadbikes at the track guys shift in a turn all the time and it makes for quicker lap times so I don't see how that concept wouldn't transfer over to 4 wheels. But who am I to judge, Ferrari has one numerous F1 championships so I'm sure they know more than me about racing cars.

I think this is great news for auto owners. I just couldn't justify the extra $1300 Gas Guzzler tax and the $1200 for the auto...But I would definitely be a happy camper if I ordered one this way!

HAHA!! The "AUTO" is the answer to 650 HP my friends!

Thanks for the post Dragoneye! Good to see some more GM input on this auto. Would like a bit more!

Not to turn this into another one of those threads but this is exactly why I said in another thread that the ZL1 auto will hang with the "other" new car in a 1/4 mile.

But does it blip the the throttle on downshifts? If not then you will upset the car badly on road course events
