Funny Skipshift Idea

Ok, LS3 Owners, what RPM is too low to be driving at? Reason being, When I shift (or try to shift) to 2 from 1, or to 3 from 1, the skip shift comes on periodically. This lugs the engine down to around 700. Really lugs. I know the skip shift eliminator will work, but why would GM make a feature that causes you to lug the engine? how many would like skipshift to be 1-3 instead of 1-4?

SYOTOS Dad! Lost, but never forgotten.

so you dont have to pay a gas guzzler tax. and 1-4 is a more natural motion than 1-3 is

yea, the 1-4 shift is a little loophole for GM to add 50HP and avoid the gas guzzler tax.

as long as I shift to 2,000 rpm, it doesn't activate. which even an automatic will shift that high under normal acceleration. Are you regularly shifting at 1,500 rpm???? If I did that, back in the day my dad would yell at me... tell me I'm shifting too early.
