    Yea, but it was either that or the gas guzzler tax.

    Lets see, $.50 resistor, or $1500 government tax?? I know what I would choose, and thats why GM did it

    The skip shift makes you shift from 1st to 4th gear if you are taking off with 25% throttle or less (I could have the exact number wrong but you get the idea). I found it very annoying and immediately got the eliminator (from RK Sport). The problem that I hated the worst-you are in traffic in a left turn lane. People take off very slowly until they get through the turn, then it's all hell breaking loose as they accelerate away in the straight away. That's right about the time you need to hit 2nd gear-the steering wheel is turned so you can't see the 'skip shift' light on the dash-and you are of course trying to watch traffic. So you go to hit second gear and it's got you locked out! So you are fumbling around trying for 4th which bogs you out a bit because you are trying to accelerate now! The car behind you is wondering what the deal is and gives you a dirty look as he goes by-and there's your powerful sports car looking like a Chevette... I ordered my eliminator about 2 days after buying my car and installed it immediately-it's been 5 years and 34,000 miles with no problems--I highly recommend it.
