Ok, so I am new to the 2010 Camaro so bare with me, I am not new to Camaros, not in any sense. I had a 98 Z28 with the LS1 and the T56 6-speed tranny, and I remember those trannys were pretty weak as adding more power to them. I know that GM switched trannys, and they are using a new 6-speed but with all of that power you are putting to it, is the tranny going to hold or do you need to replace some internals? I haven't seen specs yet on the new 6-speeds but I was curious, I haven't seen anyone really touch the internals of the trannys yet. Just curious on everyones thoughts on this.

So far no issues with tranny as axles and driveshafts are the first weak points. I have outlaw racing axles, carbon driveshaft and 35 spline spool in diff. Only time will tell what the limit is, but nobody has had any problems yet.

Thats good to hear, at least they are doing better than the T-56 from before, that tranny would have bent a fork, torn a syncro, or chewed up some gears by now.

What do you mean by top end like? Do you mean like insanely screaming fast, then yes.

Hey Bruce, well I got the bad news from Chris that axles and driveshaft won't be ready in time. Something got screwed up in the final product and they will be at least another week or two. So, I am going to run it as it is and I guess we will find out if the stock stuff will hold or not....LOL I did get my new lower control arms from Spohn and they look great with all the other components as well. This weekend will be the first time I have run the nitrous too on the car. Should make for a very interesting weekend. See you there.

Cool stuff. Just wait until you are in at least 2nd before you touch the N20.
Do you have a progressive controller ? They work excellent.
Your tires should be a good safety valve...
See you in a few days.

I am actually going to change my nitrous system when I get back as I now have the ZEX kit which only comes on at WOT and should be fine but I would like a progressive controller and the option of 2 stages. I will be coming in Friday, see you then.
