Paddle Shifters

Does the V6 have paddle shifters? Or only the SS?

good question, I dunno! Has this been discussed before I always assumed it was on ALL AUTO models because they all had the 6 speed transmission but i could be wrong.

Here's my paddle shifter.



In all seriousness, though, I think its a good thing the auto's will come with paddles. Good for those who can't get a stick for one reason or another.

"my lugnuts require more torque than your car makes"
"no replacement for displacement"
"i love twins (picture of twin turbos)"
Etc. lol

Any reviews on the tap shift? The ones on my wifes Lexus SUCK. They work but the delay is too long. Makes them almost worthless.

Oh Ya. I have only driven one vehicle with paddle shift and that's my wifes car. When I pull the paddle forward there is is about a full second delay before it shifts. Same with down shifting. I hope the Camaro is much better.

That's what I'm hoping. But it's really not that fun. Her car you can pull the paddles on the wheel or use the shifter to go up or down kinda similating that your shifting with your right hand. it sure would fool someone racing to see you rev it up and shift. But it has to be alot more responsive.

Don't know if the buttons are why it would be quicker but on the Lexus you can do it either way and there is dealay in both.

They paddles you just pull toward you to shift up or down, and the shifter you put into the bottom groove and push the shifter up or pull it down to shift up and down.

Well, how many people have actually driven this car, honestly?

And of those, how many were automatics? It seems like a lot of the CTF vehicles have been sticks.
