Did I hear about a transmission option for the Z06 (maybe part of a bigger performance option) or was I dreaming? I thought I heard about some shorter lower gears.

Haven't heard that one. Nice dream and I hope it is true. Might be like the C5. Shot peened for strenght or shorter gears. Shorter gears aint out of the range, so you might be right. Just haven't heard. Might be the difference in the ZR1 box compared to the Z06..No reason it wouldn't swap?

I know on my ZR1 there was a choice of two transmissions,while I heard it was offered for the Z06 I could not find any info. Here is from the ZR1
ZR1® High-Performance Package

ZR1® High-Performance Package includes:

■A 6-speed, short-throw manual transmission, with closer gear ratios than the standard ZR1 transmission for smooth shifting and blistering track runs

We just sold the last ZR1, my wife's car, looking to get a coupe and convertible Z06, with the new 8 speed auto it should be sick, it should keep her out on my car, and not having to buy clutches as often for her, so it's a win, win for me, or in my mind.
