2002 Chevy Corvette Z06: Love the Shifter. Hate the Shifter.

April 02, 2010

I have a love/hate/like relationship with the shifter in our long-term 2002 Chevy Corvette Z06.

I love the way it takes a heavy hand to operate and the way it actually feels like a true mechanical connection to the Corvette's drivetrain.

I hate the way it fights back when the light turns green and you need to find first gear quickly. It's not a huge issue but pulling it to the left gate from neutral does take little too much muscle.

I like the Vette's shift knob, which isn't really round, but it also isn't quite square. And I like the shifter's height, but wish it was a little shorter.
