Since the car was new we have had problems with the shifting. At first I thought it was the throwout bearing and I was shifting to fast, especially in 5th gear.

At tje oil change (2000 miles) I had them inspect the shifter linkage--no problems. Finally we could not get into 5th gear at all. After talking to a corvette engineer at a swap meet, he suggested that I have the dealer call the chevy zone rep in to look at it. Result--new trans is being put in this week. It seems that the Z06 has had some problems with the 6 speed and it usually starts with 5th gear. If you are having shifter problems, you should have them check the trans.

While they are working on it I am having them install a Ripper at the same time.

Sorry to hear about your Z. At least it wasn't the motor, which was replaced in mine two weeks ago. I'm sure all will go well.
