Yeah, I'm going to go pick her up in about an hour. They just got done replacing the tranny. Service guy says that the output shaft wasn't properly hardened and the new one should be fine.. Hope so!

Good info. So the failing parts were not hardened properly.

Only good thing I can find here is it sounds like they've identified the cause, and should be able to permanently rectify the situation.

There should be a recall on all these tranny problems. Is there a way to alert GM of all these tranny probs, so they could start looking into it?

I would say they already know with several cars being fixed for the same issue!

I know you'll be reluctant to test the launch control again. I also know you'll keep us informed on the status of tranny # deux....Thanks for sharing,sorry your living the nightmare. My car should be done the end of next week. I think when I decide to test the hardened condition of my tremec's tail shaft, it'll be next door to my dealer.

I hope it becomes a recall because i am getting supercharged. And if mine breaks i will be pissed because they would probably blame my supercharger causing it. My Vin is 5363, i havent seen anyone that low with problems, so i might be ok. (knock on wood)

i dont want to start a rumour but i think that all m6 ss since june 30 and later will be going to area 51 or 52 for some time

Don't take this the wrong way orangeinfernoman. I think a good majority of us get a headache reading your posts. I say this knowing your likely French Canadian and English is your second language. (A guess)
I understand your frustration. Rightfully so. Two new cars two failures. You got the bad end of the stick. Kind of like that horse in your avatar.
You very well may be right on the area 51 forecast. Although the numbers of tremec's failing are rising here, it is still likely less then 1% produced that are breaking. So far.

If you are worried about this, then wait until your warranty is up before getting the supercharger..

Techco is doing the r/d for my car. Plus they are warranting the whole powertrain. just dont want it to break cause it would be down for a bit.

I got mine back on monday, and tride it out at the dealer and several times after just to make sure, and had no problems as of yet. since the last time it broke on its first launch, i think they got it right this time! I hope!

Then you have nothing to worry about The Tremec in the Camaro is strong, yet there will be duds..You'll find out if yours is one of them real soon...

Cool man! I got mine back yesterday and it seems ok. I havn't tried launch control yet though. I did notice that it seems better going thru the gears. I think its more to do with linkage feeling better than the original one.
