Maybe I'm remembering that wrong...I could swear I read all about it being in the first gen.

If that's wrong, can anyone cite any other prior art that's more definitive than the Torque readout on my ScanGauge II?

I would have to see that to believe it. I imagine that was a gimmicky fake readout, the technology to get real-time readouts of the torque being applied to the drivetrain is not something that would have been imagined 40 years ago.

I think I'd like a torque gauge, but tranny temp is definitely way more useful if you have an automatic. OTOH, if you have the manual, tranny temp is pretty useless.
i'm getting the manual & i'd actually like to have a torque gauge (at least over a trans temp) for launching without the electronic assist

going back to the TAPSHIFT, i know it was said that you could shift from M to D at speed but, and this may be a stupid question or may have been answered, but can you go from D- M at speed as well?

dont see why you wouldnt be able to. it would just leave you in whatever gear you were in when you switched to M mode.

Absolutely. You can do whatever you want, the computer will prevent you from breaking stuff. In M, you're still just requesting the computer to shift the automatic transmission. I still wouldn't recommend making any stupid requests.

Going from M to D is just saying "go ahead and take control" and the computer will choose the best direction to go.

My buddy had his 08 corvette with paddles tuned in M mode to shift at redline everytime. It was tuned 2-300 rpms before redline to shift accounting the delay so it actually shifted at redline everygear. Now if you just shifted into m mode it was set to do this but if you touch the paddles it is manual until you shift out of m mode and back into it to reset the redline shifting. So his was nice you just shifted to m mode and raced knowing you would get redline shifting everygear and not even have to touch the paddles unless you just wanted to play with them!!

Call me out dated but thats something for me to know.. I know my sisters G6 you and move it up and down because it slides over to the right .... didn't realize the camaro would be able to shift up/down by using the shifter as well.. assumed from the pictures it didn't have room to toggle and shift.

ok, Outdated, he's talking about his altima, not the camaro

you cant shift up and down via the console shifter in the camaro.

N
D
M

when you go to "M" you then use the paddles.

no the auto doens't do that, you shift all teh way down into "M" and then you use the buttons on the back of the steering wheel to shift up and down.

the camaro does not do this

if these questions have already been answered sorry...

you can go from d-m and m-d as long as its like my 06 vette.

it will shift it for u in the m mode untill you play with the paddles then you are in control of it untill you put it in drive, thats how it is in the vette.

all of this is the same in my friends 05 mazda6 so i dont see why it would be any different in the 2010 camaro, its al lthe same stuff just different cars

1) yes
2) last i heard no it will only stop you from dwnshifting into a lower gear when youre RPM's are too high (over revving)

Camaro Spike please verify

Camaro Spike please verify

it will prevent a downshift that would put it over the redline

and IIRC it will automatically down shift at a stop to keep you from starting off in any gear but 1st or 2nd.
