Sure, but at some point, you're just mimicking what the DCT does. Here's an idea - just move the paddle shifters to a stick on the floor, and put in a clutch pedal that just gives your left leg something to do.
Although I have put my deposit in for a new Z06, this is my main concern with the C8...that the engineering is far ahead of the support. Heck, when I took my C6 in for an oil change, the tech seemed puzzled with the dry sump. Imagine a new belt on a C8.
First year production/design issues on the newest model and someone’s surprised? I can’t think of any manufacturer that hasn’t suffered the same. Price some pay to be the first on their block.
And REAL enthusiasts do their own oil changes.
At my age I take comfort in the nostalgic and old technology. And I like both of my 3-pedal cars…one of which I used to autocross. But I don’t rail against them. Geez, the invention of synchros must have really been upsetting to some.
And the term is dual clutch transmissions (DCT), not “flappy paddle” which some repeat like a broken Sinatra record. It’s also anything but boring. I guess the touch-tone phone was boring to some over the ‘good ole’ rotary version too. Or maybe we should’ve stuck with those entertaining carburetors instead of the boring EFI systems.
I also think someone asserted a 3-pedal vehicle is usually valued higher and I think they might be correct…when compared to traditional automatics in older collectibles. None of those relate to a DCT.
But your left leg already has something to do.
A better idea… use a left and right paddle on the steering column to shift up and down in milliseconds of when YOU decide it’s time, and still be able to keep both hands on the wheel, right foot on the accelerator and left foot ready for needed braking. Hopefully with a well-positioned tach and mimicking nothing. 🤙
