WORLD's 1ST ZR1 Corvette Automatic !! - Redline Motorsports - 9.80 @ 139 MPH - Road Test TV
ag-race-video-redline-motorsports-road-test-tv The crew at Redline
Motorsports has been hard at work developing the World's First ZR1 Corvette
with an automatic transmission. After the "Bad" auto ZR1 put down 723 RWHP
and 692 RWTQ on their Dyno, Howard Tanner, the owner
of Redline decided to take the ZR1 to the track for a few 1/4 mile passes.
In hot, humid 80 plus degree weather with a DA of nearly +2000 feet above
sea level, Redline's ZR1 automatic laid down back to back 9.80 passes at
over 139 mph. For more information about Redline Motorsports - go to
Which is better, manual or automatic transmission? Paddle shift or stick shift? Ending the debate!
http://carlylespicks.com/?p=142 Which is better, manual or automatic
transmission? Paddle shift or stick shift? Ending the debate!
For the true enthusiast, the clutch pedal and gear stick or shifter are a
JOY to use...NOT a burden. Traffic is the one exception but we are talking
about the car enthusiast. We drive fr PLEASURE, NOT to get to work or get
groceries. So traffic is not an issue when it's 7AM on a Saturday or Sunday
and you are headed to your favorite country road.
For the enthusiast, the clutch pedal is a PLUS not a minus. It is a
critical part of what makes driving a stick shift an art. Automatic is
email and manual is a hand written note. A dying art that is much more
involved and personal than email.
Making a perfect shift, makes me smile like NO paddle shift will EVER do!
Manual is a piano played with a live band, automatic is one man with a
Casio keyboard in his basement with automatic accompaniment generated by
the keyboard. The feeling of playing a complex piece correctly dwarfs any
reward of pressing ONE note and having the Casio keyboard play a bunch of
Is a paddle shift a manual transmission?
Being able to request gears manually does NOT make a transmission
automatic. Remember in the automatics from the 80s you had "2" "L" "R"? So
automatics have allowed you to "change gears" since the 80s. This is just
like modern paddle shifters do.
NOTE: A sequential gearbox is NOT the same as the classic automatic
gearbox, but the point is, you could ALWAYS select/request gears in
automatics. So the ability to SELECT gears does not make it manual. You
need the ability to physically disengage the clutch by moving the throw out
bearing and also to physically change the actual gears. This is all
mechanically done, not electronically. It requires focus, finesse,
strength, timing and skill and it's rewarding to do correctly.

180 MPH: 2009 Corvette ZO6 INSIDE AND OUT - Flybys, Acceleration & High Speed Run
Driver's note: A few slow shifts are the result me taking caution as the
Goodyear Eagle F1 tires were not 100% warm. Also, gigantic, uneven
expansion joints on highway bridges and overpasses are the reason for the
random throttle lifts at 0:16 & 2:05. During both 4 - 5 gear shifts at
about 155 MPH, I was approaching expansion joints that warranted a brief
Hear the rockin' LS7, 7.0 Liter V8 roar from inside this Velocity Yellow
Corvette ZO6 and out with several flybys and redline shifts that crackle
and pop as the car preps for the next gear ratio. Quite a few highway and
street pulls including 20-160 MPH and 120-180 MPH. Watch this monster pull
away at full throttle through the gears and then disperse a cloud of brake
dust while converting its speed into heat.
A BMW 335i coupe decided he wanted to try and overtake this beast -- and
