The failure of the stock trans was from the 4th clutch shaft splines rounding off. This was inevitable as it sounds from most reports. However, I believe I accelerated it by going WOT while cruizing in 4th gear...

You can save it for a while longer by going into manual 3, then going WOT.

BTW, after the 4th shaft failed and I had to drive it in third for 6,000 miles, this is what the clutch packs looked like:




Yeah, you shouldn't see metal....
