I've heard from others that the gas pedal of the C6 and paddle shifters are drive by wire which adds some delay when stomping on the gas or changing gears with the paddle shifters. Is this information accurate?

With the transmission sitting near the rear of the car does that mean that the MN6 is also a drive by wire? Do you get faster shifts with the MN6 when compared to paddle shifting?

Thanks

Basically everything on a C6 is electronic. All throttle bodies are connected to a drive by wire accelerator.

There's only a little delay with the 6AT paddle shift tranny because it's gotta grab the next cog. The 6MT is only as fast as you can slam the shifter into whatever gear.

As far as I know, the manual gearbox still involves mechanical linkages to the shifter, it is not an electronic interface.

The throttle control is fly-by-wire however, any delay in terms of electrical response is only academic and not noticable; what you may notice is computer controlled modification of your inputs however.

Which many owners get a qualified tuner to "fix" for them. :thumbsup:
