I will be watching this intently. The last part of my drivetrain to be upgraded will be the tr6060. I was adivsed that if all else is setup properly, and with a centri blower, the tremec is plenty stout to deal with gobs of HP. We will see as my clutch, diff, DS and axles are all being upgraded with GForce Engineering components this month. So, the last parts of the equation will be the tranny and the stroker motor. Lots of very reputable guys/gals on this site said the tr6060 is very stout and doesnt need any attention...we will see...

Not hijacking, but I just had a Tick level 2 build done.... I just installed it and will be installing my 9" kit this week... I will be giving a thorough review of this trans build once I get some miles on it... This should give people a couple reviews of what is out there are far these 6060s go...

I am pretty sure ACOWHERD on here had one.... he has since gone with a 4l80... I also seem to think he broke the output shaft on the level 6... he was leaving on a 2 step though...

Ya we broke the output shaft at Indy leaving of of Two-Step set at 5300 on 20" nittos nt05r. I would suggest going with a slick to give you some sidewall to handle the shock of leaving off of the two- step and 4-10 gears to help get the car moving with less rpm. Yes we are changing to RPM 4L80 tranny and brake and hopefully some slicks to handle the winter power upgrades. Good luck with your build and RPM will be the best tranny you can buy. And thing you can do to to help from shocking the drive train is your best bet. We did cut a 1.60 60 foot time the pass before output failure. I would stay away from drag radials if at all possible.

No we had 3-70 thur a DSS 9 inch. Shift just fine we had the ZR1 clutch set up which after every pass the clutch would go to the floor just like other have gone thur. But street use was no problems. I see you have a whipple supercharger so you make low end power where we are procharged so leaving will not be problem with your set up. But like said before you will need a slick to help will the drivetrain shock. With 20's there is not sideway to flex so the weak spot is the output shaft. Lingenfelter camaro has 4-10 and Rpm level 6 with face plated gear set. Call RPM and talk with them on your plans and they help you out.

I shifted around 6500 mark, and it shifted great most of the time. After around 9-10 moths of track and street driving, second started to grind under WOT. I could granny shift second and still ran 11.6@12x! I was just going to send it in for freshening up over the winter, but broke. Now going with RPM 4L80!

Hey Whipped any updates on your level 6?? I broke the output shaft on my stock tranny at the F-body gathering in Atlanta for memorial day and went with the RPM Level 6. Car is still in Atlanta and should be shipped this week so. I'm sure it'll be fine for my type of driving, I haven't taken it to the track yet and may only do it once or twice but I do my share of spirited street driving which is how the output shaft broke
550 miles and 8.5 hours from home isn't a good feeling.

Yes, i am interested also Blake. The TR6060 is the only thing in my car that has not been worked. Im more of an overall street/road course performance as my goal, well balance etc. Something that can do everything well albeit not great. Looking for a low to mid 10s with my drag wheel/tires setup then running down the Z06s on the road course with my Pedders Camaro wheel and tire setup and Justice/ZL1 sway upgrades.

You guys should look into liberty's gears in Taylor Michigan, they rebuilt my tr6060 with all the same components as the level six, minus the 9310 mainshaft, but with the rear bearing support and cryogenic process for less than half of the level 6 trans. Also they are a tremec elite dealer, and supply a lot of their clutchless transmissions to nhra pro stock teams. Also GM opted not to put the rear bearing support in these transmissions, it was machined for it, just never put in which could be causing output shaft breakage and bad heat treatment on some of the early camaros.

My Tick built level 2 was great.. A little stiff up to 500 or so miles,but was very smooth after the break in..even at 6600 rpm. For $1800 built and shipped, by far the most cost effective 6060 out there...

had it out 3 times in 4000 miles to fix their "build" intial install it leaked fluid and speedo didnt work.

And i am not sure if their customer service is still shitty but when i had the issue with it the day i called. Day before i flew back to korea I called during business hours and was told to call back between 4-5pm for issues with their product.

I called RPM and even though it wasnt their trans they helped me out during regular hours.
