The Beast Broke?
Ok so I have had lots of problems with a monster trans I bought back inNovember and it recently to a crap all together. Some of you help me diagnos it as a broken sunshell and congrates to your tech skills guys cuz you were right.
I took the trans back to monster so they could open it up and find out what the problem was and as I said it was the sun shell but they did not belive me when I told them this and argued with me about it untill they opened the trans up.
I get a call that I can come get my new trans and show up to find the master tech waiting for me and he is laughing. He first says I have never seen this before in my life and he pulls out the sunshell and it is in 2 peices. As I look at it I realize it is not a stock sun shell but The Beast it's self laying in his hands in 2 peices.
It seems the shell broke not at the weak link but on the back side half way between the splines and the side of the shell in a perfect circle.
Has anyone else broken the beast before? Mind you that I run no juice and have a stock LT1 with headers and a catback, lol thats it. This thing broke on a first to second shift on street tires with 3.23 gears.

yeah I've seen stock ones strip out the splines and I've seen stock ones break in two pieces as you described. Probablly just a fluke and won't happen to you again

well it is kind of fitting because if something is going to break or go wrong... it happens to me lol. Yea I hope that was the last time that happens.
