This has also happened to me haha

Is there any chance at all that you didn't get it solidly into 'M', or that the shifter was able to move out of 'M' somehow?

Either way, it needs to be looked at.

Took way too long to get a good answer. I agree with Norm.

Check fluid. My buddy's began to slip (and rev) as it was a little low on fluid. Now he has it OVERFILLED by a quart (running low 11's with drag radials).

You guys with high stall speed converters may be running into an engine rpm vs road speed condition that's outside what the PCM expects for 1st or possibly 2nd gear (engine revs are too high), and the PCM is getting confused that way. There might be a Pxxxx code for it.

This happened to me a couple of months ago. I was on my way home, decided to accelerate hard and the car didn't move. It just went up to about 5500 rpm before I noticed, as though I was in neutral. I put it into neutral and right back into S and it has been fine since... I'm due for a tranny fluid change, though I wouldn't think that would cause that?

I wish these cars were still drive by throttle cable and not by wire.

I switch off driving my 4th gen LS1 and my 5th gen SS, and there is just a different throttle response feel with the cable that i miss in my 5th gen.

CPU confusion and drive by wire sending messages to the CPU delayed response sucks.
