If your car doesn't already have the CAGS defeat you should get it. It's not a necessity. It's there to override the standard CAGS function of shifting from 1st gear to 4th gear when at less than 2k rpm.
I am glad I have mine.
BTW, this is my first post here. I'm looking forward to more Corvette related discussions.
I normally shift pretty high and didn't normally need the CAGs defeat, but it bit me a few times in parking lots, so I bought the defeat kit from Ecklers for about $20. Installation is a piece of cake. Takes about 20 minutes.
Thanks for the welcomes from everyone. Sounds like I ought to get a CAGS eliminator. Funny, until I did a bit of reading on it, I didn't know the Vette was set up that way. I put it off to not knowing how to efficiently go from first to second!:roll:
Finally, last night, I saw the 1st to 4th light on the dash! Man I'm relieved and the "eliminator" goes to the top of the list of "Mods".
