Skip Shift?

I just thought about something... On my 2000 camaro it had a skip shift. (I do not know if this is the right term or not) It was really annoying. Does anyone know if this will be on the new one or not? Sorry if this has already been asked.

Yes. But apparantly it's really easy to fix. Don't ask me how though.

It is not very intrusive on the Camaro.

I would assume it'll be the same part for the Camaro. There are other manufacturers that make the same thing...

There is a shift gate lockout that forces your shift from 1st to 4th, instead of 2nd, under light acceleration. If you're "punching it", you'll still go from 1st to 2nd like you normally would.

Ummmmm. Yup.

I had the s/s eliminator in my GTO less than a week after I bought the car.

Keeps us out of a 1500-2000 dollar gas tax buddy. Take it or leave it. It's a good deal 25 bucks to remove saving you tons.

My GTO has this, but it cost like $20 and takes about 5 minutes to get rid of it. I didn't like it because in the city with traffic where you have to use light acceleration I almost got rear ended several times before I got rid of it.

I would suggest just buying the skip shift eliminator, it was worth it.

Drive it first. I drove the SS for three days before I noticed it even had it.

It only occurs on light throttle low rpm shifts. Shift over 2000 rpm and you will hardly notice it or accelerate hard and you will never notice it.

Seriously, I've driven a lot of cars with CAGS and this is the least intrusive car I've ever driven with it.

To the best of my knowledge it will NOT void any warranties. All it does is let you shift from 1st to 2nd under any acceleration condition the same way it does under "heavier" acceleration ANYWAYS...

Skip shift is one of the worst things I have ever experienced in a car, other than drum brakes, but $25 and its gone. I drove a test drove 98 WS6 and never heard of it before. I damn near destroyed the shifter trying to get into 2nd gear, The salesman had no clue, said to park it in the service drive when we got back. its unnatural.

Does the new Camaro have a skip shift light? In the Fbody's the light still comes on even with the eliminator unless skip shift is programmed out.........not a big deal but i have heard some bitch about it.

The GTO has a skip-shift "logo" that still lights up even when the eliminator is installed. No big deal ignoring it.

Yep on the GTO i've never noticed it. The Camaro should be the same.

On my 2000 TA it was very annoying.

I had it on my Vette and as mentioned above it eliminates or helps to eliminate the gas guzzler tax so we should all be thankful they have included it on the Camaro.

Second, it is a breeze to defeat and literally takes just a few minutes to install the "override" and it is undetectable. Even if they figure out that you defeated it, they should care less and it would never effect the function of the trans or could be faulted for causing a failure. There are probably hundreds of threads over the years on this at Corvetteforum.
