  • C8 New Features Guide

    This is a 22 page PDF summarizing a lot of the features of the C8, often in interesting detail, and aimed at service techs. I haven't seen it posted before, even though it's from last year. I did notice a few errors that seem to be boilerplate copied from other models.

    Much of it we already know, but there is some info that's new to me. I found it an interesting read.

    Nice, thanks for posting. I wonder if there's one for the MY21 Corvette.

                  There are so few differences between model years, there probably isn't.

                    Page 19 - Sport Mode, the DCT goes into performance shift feature when spirited driving is detected and exists this feature when spirited is Not detected. Does mean it will shift like it’s in Tour Mode when not spirited driving?

                    I would think it would give you better MPG when in Sport Mode but not driving hard.

                      Well, that was an interesting read. Just hope no one pulls a pop quiz about it, especially the transmission info. Thanks for posting.

                        Except on the highway, I'm almost always in manual mode, so I have no idea. But I think you're halfway correct. It probably shifts at lower rpm in Sport / non performance shift than it does when in performance shift mode, which should save some fuel. But I suspect driving in a more sedate way has more effect on mpg than changing the shifting does.

                          It says that only dealers will get the manual Park release tool but I'll be tow truck operators would like to have them. Is there any alternative for them besides just dragging the car onto a flatbed? Maybe a dolly placed under the rear wheels.
                          Save the wave.

                            I think a dolly under the rear wheels is the recommended method.

                              Dragging the car even a few feet is a very bad idea with the DCT engaged, the eLSD, etc. A jack up in place and then right there placement onto a dolly is all I would personally allow.
