I almost forgot, cause I was busy driving my Camaro. Seemed like i was without her forever, but they only had it for 1 1/2 days. Great job replacing the half shaft, cleaned up all the grease for me. I have nothing but great
things to say about Davidson Gebhardt Chevrolet and their service dept, especially Gregg (service advisor) and Ryan (mechanic).
Thanks guys!!!

Launch Control is an approved feature designed and built for use with this vehicle. This is plainly stated in the owner's manual. Your argument should be that you were using the vehicle in exactly the manner outlined by GM in the owner's manual.

See my attached excerpt from the Camaro Owner's Manual.

Look, the owner's manual will put the sleeper hold on them.

Lost a drive line this week using launch control. Covered under warranty and will be repaired in a few days. I can't believe you are having this problem.

Yes, but if you go a few pages forward, you can see that GM gives itself an out printed in the bold "Notice" section:

No out for GM. Launch Control a standard feature, and the driver using the feature as instructed.

Additionally, warning is for transmission damage due to shifting while car has no traction. In the OP's case, he has CV joint issue - not transmission issue.

We are offering new center sections that will be done very soon and be able to handle well over 1000HP along with new shafts that we build as they are ordered. If anyone is interested please call or PM me and I will see what we have. I try to keep them on hand

We are also designing a complete new rear end that will handle over 1500HP all day long. We are rebuilding everything to handle huge power so the rear end will handle all you can give it.

Chris -

PM sent. Please contact me ASAP.
Thank You.

Did your drive shaft break (between transmission and differential) or did you break a cv joint (between differential and wheel hub)?

I dont personally own a camaro, but I detail cars at a dealership. We have had two new camaros come in and both have had a granaded diff. the first one got turned down by warranty do to track slips in the car. We tried to get it warrantied but they sent out someone from GM, and they pulled the warranty. Yesterday the second came in, the guy was at the track and had wheel hop. But didnt finally blow untill he launched on the road, guy went home and cleaned out all the rubber from the track, getting it completly warrantied. I guess what I am saying is make sure there is no tar or rubber in the wheel wells or they probably wont warranty it.

Grenaded diff? Haven't heard that one yet, I think it is more likely the transmission output shaft or the cv joint.

The car is driveable it simply makes a rotational squeaking noise. The dealership said it was a "Drive Line" not sure what part that is exactlly. I will have them save the part and I will let everyone know what part of the "Drive Line" actually caused my problem.

Pure from the dealer and GM.

Don't push it until they fix it, or in my case, don't buy it - unless...

I can damn guarantee I can pull up to the dealer in my 80k Z06 with a broken halfshaft and they wouldn't repair it either if I was doing stuff to my car like that..
I don't want it if it's weak. My stock 1969 Camaro wasn't weak.

Wassup with the broken output shafts and cv joints, GM?

I wonder if it was a bad lot of CV joints, I was in a closed lot with some other folks last week and was dumping the clutch a lot playing around with how the back end slides with the tires burning and learning to turn hard and I am gtg (so far.....lawlz).

Did you have a complete exhaust replacement...with even that what does that have to do with the axle!?

How many miles on the car?

A poor decision by your dealer....BOOOO!

I've owned many mustangs in the past and never had an issue with dropping the clutch at 5-6000 rpms. GM should cover this problem.

The way GM states things are, any aftermarket performance product allows the car to opperate at high higher level than dezigned. You think it is bad with the camaro, I have a 09 cobalt ss, and there are people not getting warranty work when the car is 100 percent stock.

There have been other members with broken cv joints and trans output shafts.

GM is refusing to say what is or was wrong with anything and how they corrected it.

Now, they're measuring tread depth front to back?

I want root cause on the output shafts and cv joints, and the corrective action taken before I buy.

Times a wastin' - do it!

Don't blow this opportunity to gain future sales.

A new generation is deciding to love or hate GM now.

Not if you have anything but stock parts, or ever have had it to the track. Or they can clearly see abuse.
