2002 Chevrolet Corvette Z06: Skip Shift
January 26, 2011
Many people mistakenly refer to the Corvette's fuel-saving first gear to fourth gear shift feature as Skip Shift. Even Chevy incorrectly labeled the indicator that appears on the instrument panel as the "One to Four Shift Light" in the Z06's manual. But the correct, official name for it is Dork Shift (look it up). Because if you're shifting from first to second at such a low rpm that this feature takes effect, you just might be a dork.
