I'm at 7800 miles - So should let it go and burn up the clutch?

Flushing the system is best, in that with my method, you never get all of the fluid out, but this has work for me. I'm only at 12k miles so I'll probably consider a flush and refill with higher temp brake fluid at about 30k. I am also considering a split reservoir.

Just got back from the dragstrip and had this happen to me on the 3rd pass/1st round of eliminations....and it scared the sh*t outta me. I thought I was lookin at buyin a new clutch. Thank God this is a common problem. GM needs to have a recall for this if they plan on selling many new SS's, ZL1's and Z28's. I can only imagine the ZL1's and Z28's have their own problems with all the horsepower they are pushing.
