Ah. Thanks for clearing it up. :-)

Maybe this will make learning a manual easier for me. I have to learn before I get my ZL1.

At high RPM, my SS won't go into 2nd without grinding even with a lift-shift. I can't imagine what horrors await with a no-lift-shift.

Chevy has claimed it was for aerodynamics.

we have had clutchless full throttle shifts on motorcycles for years not sure why with all the electronics they couldn't do the same for a car.

we put a sensor in the shifter linkage the cuts the ignition for a split second and allows it to slip into the next gear. full throttle the entire time no clutch needed.

**EDIT**
I saw the previous post so I assume this is something specific with the M6 transmission which would mean it will work in the SS model???
It will not. The SS is a LS3 N/A engine, therefore there's no reason to keep the boost(cause it doesn't build any) between shifts. The ZL1 is supercharged and therefore holds the boost between shifts instead of loosing it. My Cobalt SS T/C is the same.

and cooling. with the diff,oil, trans, and intercoolers being up front the '14 and up front isnt the best. They did function before form in 2014...

I used the piss outta that feature(no lift shift) on my Turbo cobalt. I embarassed countless Mustang GTs (pre 5.0) and shocked some GTslows(GTOs)

Bleed the hydraulic clutch, if you still have the same problem you need a new clutch. I'm on my 3rd clutch....when you cant smoothly no lift it is time to replace the clutch.

I've used this feature a lot, it is fun and easy. My friends and wife say, per all my videos, that I am heading to the grocery store, or that's what it looks like because it doesn't take that much effort.....
