I hate the skip shift!!!

driving to work this morning I wasn't paying attention and it skipped me into 4 th gear.... I didn't fully shift into gear and let out the clutch and heard a big bang.... could I have broken something or will it take a lot more then that to hurt anything? it shifts find and I don't hear any noise.. am I ok? lol

I've got a skip shift eliminator sitting in my draw at home. PM me if you want it.

After youve had the car a while you'll be able to goose the throttle and get around it.
Like the last guy, I bought an eliminator and its been in my glove box for months even though Ive had my car up in the air several times.

I take off from my downhill street in 2nd gear so skip shift gets skipped. (Or it has worked for me anyhow)

Yep, this is always a good way to be safe downhill.




Just know, if you didn't have skipshift from the factory there would be another gas guzzler or similar tax on your camaro. Don't need another one of those!


A $18 skip shift eliminator is nothing compared to hundreds in taxes on the msrp.

If I was going to get my car tuned, would I still need the skip shift eliminator?

20 bucks and 15 minutes of your time will fix that.

But if I do get a tune, would I still need the skip shift eliminator, or would the tune take care of it?

Tune will remove it as well as long as the tuner does it which they usually do even if you don't ask.
