Do you think just because someone drives a auto they can't drive a manual? I grew up driving manuals but due to bad knees I can't continually push in a clutch.

Not at all. I just said that because he said "most of you can't". Or something similar to that. I'm glad you enjoy your auto.

I don't use launch control. It's been proven that the best times are with all the nannies off and no launch control. Launch control was designed to make driving easier for the "average" manual transmission drivers, therefore enhancing their track times. Oh, and by the way, it is spelled "dinosaur". If you don't have spellcheck on your computer or phone I suggest you get "into the new age" and get one.

No launch control here either. I see we are in the same neighborhood. I would not mind a little fun competition. U up?

You would think this is a mustang Camaro dispute.
You do all realize that all of you bought a ZL1.
Some how our minds connected at one point and said I have to own this amazing car and made it happen.
Coupe, Convertible, Auto, Manual, what color, the options depend on your preference.
I'm glad that Chevy knew enough to give us both trannies in this car.
There are no loser's but only winners in this debate.
And for those that did not buy a ZL1 your on this site and

The correct spelling is grammar. Sorry, couldn't resist. I'm done now.
