    haha, it's not about the fuel economy, it's purely about avoiding having to charge the gas guzzler tax. Would you rather pay an extra $2600 (that's off of a ZL1 camaro invoice) in tax to appease the moonbats or just have to buy a $20 jumper & bypass the skip shift?

    I have skip shift on my Challenger 6 speed manual. If you don't expect it, which you won't, the shift from first to forth results in an unexpected loss of power that can and will prevent you from accelerating from an awkward situation if you need to. I think it is dangerous, so for $15. I bought a skip shift eliminator which solved the problem. The skip shift light will still illuminate but transmission will shift from first to second as normal, not first to forth. It was a simple fix for my Challenger, doubt it would be much more difficult for your C7, took about five minutes to install. Below is a picture of the skip shift on the Challenger.

    2 choices that I'm aware of.
    1) Buy the plug assembly and install it to 'fool' the computer and retain the dash indicator when in skip ship mode.
    2) Get into the tune and change one parameter to eliminate the skip shift which will also eliminate the dash indicator.

    Or like I did on a frost covered hill with the wife on board. Damn thing got me all tangled up with what I was doing and got me sideways. Had I made it into second like I was trying to do it would have been no problem.

    I will undoubtedly be looking into how to over-ride or program it out.

    Skip Shift is more than an irritant, could be a safety issue. Finally warm enough (for a day) to get under the car and install a Skip Shift Eliminator. Works great. Made a How To Install and included how to jack up the Corvette high enough for access for those new to DIY for the Vette.
    Check it out the 8 page report with pics at NetWelding.com/Reports_Vette_Info.htm
