Annonced by GM this morning

Searching around for the answer, it looks like some Camaro5 members have broken output shafts when using launch control or dropping the clutch. :emb:

Hope GM gets this ironed out quick so they can keep up the sales momentum on this car.

If it's true, at least they are looking into a potential problem and fix instead of ignoring it as they did with our wimpy ass rear ends. A good reason not go out and buy one of the first cars off of the production line also.

And, no, that's not a contradiction. :)

Plus there are NO guarantees that the 2nd or 3rd model year of a particular vehicle won't come with it's own set of new issues as well.
And that applies to new vehicles from any manufacturer, not just GM.

The output shaft Czar has decided to eliminate the IRS to increase profits. They plan on putting leftover 10 bolts from the 4th Gens into the SS:nod:

I saw it in:google: it has to be true.

im down for kicking the ass of the person who decided to put 10 bolts in the 4th gens. but it looks like they are taking this problem seriously and fixing it so thatas good. they are racing off the lots compared to the stang and esp the challenger.

Fix will be an ECU update IMO.
Increase torque management to reduce the scope for abuse ;)

Seems like they have narrowed down the issue, maybe to a certain batch of output shafts?
