I see why this is a must-have upgrade!
Its one of the 'tricks' to get higher MPG values on the EPA City Cycle test.

Not necessarily the way anyone would choose to drive - going into 4th [1:1 gear @ 20mph will kill any acceleration potential and assure your tail will get run over by someone driving behind you.

GM employed this on the Tremec T-56 6-speed with the mid-90s Camaro/Firebird and IIRC, on the Corvette.

The TR-6060 Tremec (similar to T-56, with updates), also uses this on GM applications as well.

lol. that's crazy... I would have thought they would just put something like that in literature to inform you on how-to do it rather than force you to.

Finally installed mine yesterday while I was installing my exhaust. It only took five minutes to hook it up. But as I was tucking the wires, the whole thing literally fell apart in my hands in three pieces. I think the manufacturer should put some type of heat shrink tubing or something similar around the entire assembly so it can't fall apart.

I bought the skip shift eliminator from SLP. At first install I put it in the rear solenoid position by mistake and all that happened is I could not get it to shift into reverse. I discovered my mistake and reinstalled it in the solenoid on the drivers side of the trans 5 or 6 inches further towards the front from the back one. Now, the skip shift is working but I can't shift into 2nd or 3rd gear when at idle. Plus it is still really hard to shift into reverse. Did I not get the reverse lockout solenoid reattached correctly? Does anyone else have the shifting at idle problem? challengerbliss

Shifting is stiff into 2nd and 3rd when cold but loosens up pretty quickly. Reverse should not be a problem.

Just another counterpoint. First, congratulations for those who love the skip shift eliminator, and by all means enjoy.

As mentioned above, this is just my own opinion. Coming from the perspective of a vintage car collector who happens to like things stock (ok, I'm in the minority), I get some weird, sick, pleasure of learning to overcome or manage quirks or features in my vehicles if it's not something that is broken. So I made the decision to shift the 2010 Challenger as it was made. Like beepah, I drive the car to mostly avoid the skip shift. When it activates on occasion, I have a super smooth shift back to third, and there is very little drama, including on those left turns from a light, which we all know is one of the prime times the skip shift conditions occur. More power to anyone who gets the eliminator, but if you do happen to like things stock, it's good to hear a few counterpoints to help you decide. No doubt that this is one of the most popular mods, with many advocates and happy customers.

Skip shift eliminator since I got it home, did not want to deal with it there is PLENTY enough going on with these double clutch, triple cone 1-3 synchro trannies as is and don't need to "learn" to out drive it, but that's me! I also turned off "hill assist" on day one, but at least that's an "option" that's able to be deactivated and its explained in the manual which isn't so with Skippy!

Just placed my order w/ Speedlogix for a skip shift eliminator. Looking forward to having that annoying little feature turned off.

Should be ordering the 2011 Charger Intake Tube and BT Catch Can very soon!
