My 1LE does it all day long. No lift shift into any gear, no grinding. If the gears grind, it is because I did not clutch it enough.

So do we need to push the clutch in fully or just dab it?

but hey honda did sell a lot of preludes,but thats was the 90's and everything comes back around...yes Camaro 5 did vote on what they thought about the new 14 rear also and it was voted down by a huge amount like 40-4 and some.....stop counting at the point when it was over sort of like little league but i still say its a ZL1,ugly still the rest of the car makes up for it,go enjoy it if you have it,but i dont understand why this posting is trying to make it like shifting a ZL1 is new,hell the 2013 i purchase instead of the 14 3 weeks ago will do the same thing,and so will the 2012 oh well I guess they just have to write about something..dang I just cant wait to get my 770 package back from fastlane here in H-town ...I post the pics as soon as i get them from them again fastlane I was sent them in a format i cant upload from the email so fastlane is sending them again to me....if you have it drive it like you stole it,lol

Just like you would push it when lifting the accelerator. You can miss a gear or not fully disengage the clutch just like any other time. And it will hit the limiter for a slow or missed shift.

Absolutely! I agree. I really don't like the 2014 tail lights at all. I wouldn't mind having the 2014 front end on my 2012 though.

Car breathes better with the old front clip, so it got to stay. Thank GAWD.

I no-lift-shifted my 2010 5th gen s/c manual Camaro all the time at the track and never had a problem.

You just have to know how to shift fast enough.

**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???
Yes I have this in my 2013 1LE

I've seen 4 in person in different colors: black, blue ray, ashen grey and red. In person the tail lights are actually much nicer than in the photos I've seen and frankly I've come to like them. Also, there are some colors where the license plate area does look a little "Prelude"-ish, but really - not an issue in person. It's not THAT bad, though I do prefer the pre-14 lower fascia. The black looked the best, and would look even better painted body color instead of the flat grey-ish/black. Good opp for that vendor who is selling the painted versions of the pre-14 lower panel.

I had no lift shift in my Evo... the boost wouldn't dip below 14psi between shifts. it was very handy to keep boost on the ready. Not sure how much it would benefit a NA car though.

It's even better in person. When you change gears the exhaust spits out a machine gun "rapapappapapapa" as it hovers at redline. Sounds aggressive.

Love the No-Lift-Shifting! Tried it with my Noweeds Exhaust Diverter Wide Open. My radar detector started to rattle, it was Crazy Loud! One nite I passed my husband on the hiway and he said he saw a flame pop underneath my car! Didn't see it with my own eyes, but I like the thought of flames popping out at redline!
