Is it possible to have a C6 valvebody that will allow you to leave in 2nd gear vs/ 1st or even have the option to leave in 2nd or 1st?

In My Opinion if you are geared low enough to launch in second you should change your differential gears.

Sure, you can do iy with a manual VB. A friend with a 514 Mach1 uses 2nd gear for launch when he takes his street machine to the track. Using first gear causes stupid wheelspin.

Haha I got that part... Just wondering if we could have a similar mod for a c6 like they do the turboglides, etc. several folks are running power glides w/ a trans brake that you can leave in low or high gear

This would be nice for trucks that run several different tire sizes, cut and DOT. Different types of mud would change things also. A first or second gear leave on the brake would open up possibilities. A post on YB from a couple years ago said Dynamic could do it. I called and they said the don't anymore. Not enough interest.

Does anybody on this board have the know how to fabricate a valvebody for the c6 that you can leave in 2nd gear on the transbrake?
