I had the same issue, been driving stick forever. I had to literally lock my right knee and stand on the pedal to prevent my reflex of lifting. It's a hoot once you get it!

Yes. Launching the automatic is much easier and with all those gears there's an acceleration advantage.

The manual transmission car is a bit more of a challenge to get it to launch but it has its...

I have done so. It was a C7 Grand Sport with the Z07 package, vs my 2017 ZL1 M6.

I found the shift throws on the C7 to be short and precise, maybe a little shorter than the ZL1. I didn't have the...

You need a flex fuel sensor and a tune to "unlock" those maps in the ECU. The sensor I have has a bluetooth connection to a phone app that reports % ethanol in real time.

I'm told that the high side fuel pump in the engine block can't flow enough fuel to support an 85% ethanol mix - 60% E is the most flow rate it can support. Ethanol has a lower energy density than...

No plans for more mods - for now. 660WHP with a 60% Ethanol tune is good enough for now. Pretty cost effective 15% increase in power. I'm using the stock airbox too so there could probably be a...

Dyno Plot: 2 runs with ~95 Octane straight gasoline and one with 58% Ethanol

Quite a big increase in power with ethanol. Only other mod that applies to all the curves is a Soler TB.

I had a minute and a clear road - Launch Control 0-60 Runs

Two runs using launch control and the in-car timer.
The first run was 4.1 seconds and the second was 3.9 seconds.
Enjoy!
