http://www.stingrayforums.com/forum...76a-shifter-alignment-2014-manual-tranny.htmlIt can be difficult going from first to second.
Plus from 5th to 6th the shifter wants to go
to 4th. You better be watching your gear and
not dumping the clutch. My C6 Grand Sport
shifted much better had no problems.
Considering replacing the shifter.
Thanks Vigilance will have dealer check it out.
I agree. They emphasized this point at Spring Mountain. Once you get a feel for true neutral, the entire shifting pattern really falls into place.The problem is and no offence to anyone intended is that most people are never taught how to properly use a shift mechanism. They need to understand what "true nuetral is and how the shift structure works. Your worst enemy is to have a "ham fist" when manipulating the gates. Any shifter requires a gentle hand and becoming aware where the spring loading and detents are and what they mean. For example...1 to 2, all it needs is a slight left pressure as you pull through the gate to avoid the "true nuetral" centering spring. Remember, if the blood leaves your knuckles the "feel" goes away.
As you point out 6&7 are highway gears, and not intended for performance driving. The C7 achieves top speed in 5th gear....anything more than five forward speeds is more trouble than it is worth. I realize that when you get up to sixth and seventh speeds are overdrives and not normally involved in performance driving...
