No. As stated in the OP, dealers won't replace anything unless it's a legitimate warranty claim....which this is not, yet.
So far, this issue seems to have been limited to a small amount of SSs, so chances are your car will be fine. In the event it's not -- that's what a warranty is for. There's no benefit to babying the car out of fear the tranny will break.

There should be NO reason we cant rev to 6000 RPM and dump the clutch. You dont think any owners of those other cars do that?
The tranny isnt the problem, it has to be something specific with a certain batch.
While your point is a good one, Tremec has many
different versions of the TR6060, all with their own sub-designations like "MM6"... and all of them are rated to different power/torque levels. The transmission in the Viper, for instance, is NOT the same one in the Camaro.
