Post your VIN if your transmission broke!

I think all of us would like to know if there's a pattern between breaking transmissions and a certain VIN range. So far I'm hearing it's the 16000 range but there's only one way to be sure...asking everyone.

Post your VIN if you broke your transmission and let us know if you were using launch control or not.

I check, and its holding about 4200 rpms like it shoud.... Every thing looks fine and dandy... Dump the clutch... BAMMMMMMM!

Now here I am with my neighbor friend, and the first thing he says... " oh shit!, you're done...".... As far as I can tell, the tremec didn't hold up to the dump of the clutch. I can't get the camaro to move in gear now at all.. Leaking trans fluid going everywhere on the ground.... called onstar.. Get everything set up to get it towed back to the dealer right now. I am sure the tremec's tail shaft snapped..

So much for launch control... Maybe if I had slippery tires, it wouldn't of been a problem.. Oh, and while waiting for the Tow truck guy, here comes this ricer into the parking lot doing donuts and just making me feel worse about the whole situation.. I still love the Camaro though.. Now I have to sit and wait while I figure out what the dealer is going to do about it.

Anybody else's M6 transmission broke yet from burnouts/ launch control?

I pulled into the driveway, and the transmission quit shifting. It only will stay in neutral. What do you guys think is the problem?

I'm going to take it to the dealer in the morning...

Bummer. Is this a trend or just neglect?

I'm having trouble w/ mine, but I haven't been to the dealer about it yet (out-of-state registration delay). My clutch stuck about 2-3 inches from the floor and smoked like crazy. Nothing broken that I know of however...

Looks like it is not just confined to the 16000's. BTW, what were you guys doing when it broke? Comp mode? dump clutch at over 4000 rpms?
