Gearing down is easy, with little or no resistance.

NO GRINDING AT ALL.

They have yet to change any part numbers yet. I think they are verifying it has been fixed before the numbers get changed.

Hey , so they came through for you and replaced the whole tranny?

Good job Jerry.......
very cool glad to hear

Well finally got the Clutch Master Cylinder installed. This is a fairly easy mod! I also added a Tick Performance SS clutch line, remote reservoir, and Motul 600 fluid. I used a vacuum bleeder to bleed the system. First off you will notice the clutch pedal grabs a little higher. Easy to get used too. Went out for some spirited driving to make sure everything was well and she performed excellent with no gear grind on several high RPM pulls. Then took the Camaro to Carolina Motorsports Park this past weekend for a Track Day event. Put the Camaro through her paces in 104’ air temps and track temps at 135’. NO Issues! The clutch master performed great with no grinding and smooth shifts. IDEALG did his homework and scored a 100% with this Mod. Thank you! Awesome job!


Later

Yeah i doubt they are going to fix all of ours. They could have done it.. I gotta thank Jerry from IDEALG for fixing mine......

GM Warranty sux, I would not trust those GM techs touch my tranny again.
They will release the new part numbers as soon as our warranty runs out.

since the master cylinder bottoming out is the only thing stopping your pedal now, it's a good add on to protect the master cylinder. My master cylinders should still be used at full travel though for optimum performance

using a pedal stop on mine with no problems at all using the Ideal master cylinder and a separate resevoir for the clutch fluid. I've got it set so the pedal is just over an inch off the floor when depressed.

I posted some pics a couple pages back in this thread
