I had an '09 ZO6, my third Corvette. Have you ever driven one? 98% of the time, I never look at the tach because I can hear/feel when to shift. It's the 2% of the time when pushing it to the limits and the RPMs shoot to redline very quickly, when one needs to know where the needle is before the limiter kicks in. Someone who has never driven a very fast car would not understand.
