Serious upgrade needed on the driveline!

After all the driveline problems mentioned on this forum
ie. transmission, axle shafts,drive shafts,clutches etc.
How the hell do they expect to handle over a hundred
more horsepower without a driveline improvement?
Haven't had any problem with mine, but I am a little gun shy
about pushing it.

It's all covered in the warranty. Which is why I'm going to try to break mine as soon as i get it.

The same way they upgrade other cars, like Z06 and ZR1

2012 will be a mid generation refresh year for the gen 5 Camaro. A lot of things are being improved, with the Z joining the mix I'm sure those things are being addressed. This isn't the first car these guys have built.
