I'd be more than happy to share time in each others drivers seat! In all honesty, it looks like no one loses regardless of which tranny they chose. But, it would be nice to take the manual through a pace or two (with dignity!)...

I'm just not trading titles! LOL...... Anyone who got the 6M deserves to drive the A6 to see what it's like, and vice versa!

After all, to know it is to love it!

In the video he says it's accomplished by 'Steging the oncoming clutch of the next upshifted gear before the driver even requests it.

So is that a mechanical change as well? Does the 6L80E have that ability?

He did say it was implemented in the 2012 Camaro, Corvette, and CTSV. He didn't specify the ZL1 or ZR1.

Any thoughts?

Easy answer. The insecure writers at the car magazines always select the slower manual transmission. You see it all the time when they test the Porsches. They always pick the manual instead of the faster PDK. Sometimes Porche only supplies PDK then they are forced to review that. I guess it makes them feel more like men to drive the manual transmission. Of course most of the readers chose automatics so who are these idiots at the magazines serving when they only review manual equipped cars? When was the last time you saw a mustang with automatic transmision being reviewed?

My SS auto downshifts just fine going hard into a corner, I'm sure the ZL1 will be the same or probably even better.
