1-4 Shift feature?

What is the deal on the 1-4 shift feature on the M6 trans? I was reading the features PDF and saw this hadn't heard of it before. Can you deactivate it?

it's put in place to improve MPG (thus avoiding the gas-guzzler tax)...basically at certain RPMs/speed it forces you to shift from 1st to 4th.

There's an plug made by SLP that disables it...or if you're getting a PCM tune, you can disable it that way.

CAGS. Computer Assisted Gear Selector. Locks you out of 2nd and 3rd gear and forces you into 4th at low RPM. Hate it.

It is in effect only at low speeds. If you're are doing slow starts and just cruising along, there isn't a problem. The technology has been around for awhile I believe. Chevy saves big on MPG, which in return the Camaro doesn't get hit with the dreaded gas guzzler tax!

Yeah my 98 Z28 has it and with over 243,000 miles I have put on it I don't find it an issue.

YES...after my first 100 miles in my car, I have yet to see it activated.
