Default Stopped into trans shop today

Found the 95 on the left, front wheels off, hubs pointing in opposite directions and a sub frame on the ground with a big hole under the hood.
Walked into the office and found no one, walked back into the shop and around the corner to the work bench - two guys going to town re-rebuilding a 4T60E-HD.
Apparrently the the 1-2 sprag gear was bound for catstrophic failure.

I feel bad/embarassed as this is the second trans I have had them rebuild under warranty.
