My guess is Longtimer the Brass at GM will set up the C8 so it can not be Drag Race Power shifted by a Street drag racer like me.
All computer control.

The original C3 Mid Engine Prototype the Head Engineers were Busted doing Wheel Stands Wheelies in it in front of the Main Doors parking Lot.
Front wheels off the ground for several hundred feet banging away at the gears WOT.
One Big Reason the C3 Mid engine was cancelled.
The Engineers were all Drag Racers.

The thing about "Computer Control" is that there are no MFG computer controls that I have heard of that have not been "cracked" and modifications offered by the aftermarket. I doubt this transmission will be any different.

Corvette ownership is like owning your own fountain of youth ... and we get a sip from it each time the signal turns green.

clutch replacement

if there are turbos or a supercharger, I would expect that would make the clutch change an even bigger job....regardless, owning one of these cars is gonna be big dinero….maintenance also will definitely not be cheap.
