  3. Manual 7 speed shifting issues survey

    General Discussion
    I may be an oddball, but I love the factory setup. I came from a CTS-V that had the TR6060, so am familiar with 1-2 shifts before the transmission fluid warms up. That was a very smooth shifter. My current TR 6070 is very smooth and only takes about 1 mi. to smooth out the 1-2 shift when cold...
  4. Why no BDS Detection Mirrors?

    General Discussion
    I disagree that proper side mirror adjustment doesn’t help. If they are set up correctly, and the rear view mirror, too, a car approaching from the rear will be visible in a side mirror when it leaves the rear view mirror coverage. Situational awareness of traffic is most important, particularly...
  5. Defensive Driving Techniques

    General Discussion
    Yes, I always speed up a bit when changing lanes, after signaling; it helps keep clear of the jerks beside me that speed up when I go around them. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  8. Heads-up Display Information

    General Discussion
    Occasionally, the information mode in the display will change when I start the car. It is certainly no big deal and easy to change back, but has anyone else experienced this? I suspect it is caused by a remote software update. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  10. Heel Pad

    General Discussion
    Came from Custom Corvette Accessories under Performance Petals. Aluminum billet with stainless steel hardware: $99. If you’re putting it on the stock GM mats, you can attach it securely with loop Velcro and don’t have to drill holes in the carpet, which is a giant PITA. I had some trouble with...
  11. Power Stop Brake Pads turns Rotors Brown with Rust - Need Solution to fix.

    General Discussion
    I have a 2019 Stingray Z51 7m with polished aluminum wheels. I don’t have significant brake dust problems. If I’m approaching a red light, I frequently downshift and at least half the time, the light changes and I don’t need the brakes. And no, I’ve never worn out a clutch. My point is that...
  12. Heel Pad

    For all you M7 guys, here is a very OEM-looking accessory that addresses the carpet wear areas below the clutch and accelerator petals. It can be attached using hook Velcro, without having to burn mounting holes in the mat, which is a PITA. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Have at it, and by the way, the stock shifter is just fine, but open your wallet and learn, young man. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Buying Parts: Guys, I learned decades ago that you can’t out-engineer the factory engineers, if you’re looking at a car that spends most of it’s time in normal street use. If you modify for more power, etc., there are always, always trade-offs. You know what they are. If you’re fortunate enough...
  15. Header Install

    Yeah, I went through that in 1980 and realized that I was just buying parts for less performance. You may realize that you can’t out engineer the factory. Enjoy your C7 without all that crap. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
