    The only gears that are going to "drop" easily are at the hands of a poor driver or a gross over powering.So , no ,its not true.

    Its all in how you treat it. Any transmission will break if you abuse it hard enough. As far as I know there good transmissions as long as you can drive.

    tranny should be able to take the nitrous. but the stock clutch will be on borrowed time. i dont see how you still have the stock clutch with almost 400hp.

    The stock bottom end is good for 600+ rwhp and the stock M6 tranny can be reliable up to 500(ish) rwhp.....they are far from being the weak links on these cars.

    The stock clutch is crap.....it has a hard enough time holding 320 rwhp, however there are a number of cost-effective alternatives that can handle much more. I've thrown a LOT at my LS7 clutch and it hasn't had the first problem.

    The second weak link is the stock 10 bolt rear end and the small 7.5" ring gear. These are notorious for breaking. The stories are all over the board with these....there are plenty of guys running 10's and 11's on the stock 10 bolt rear, however there are plenty of guys with bone stock M6's tearing them to pieces.

    If you're looking to build a reliable 400 - 500 rwhp car, the stock bottom end and tranny will be just fine. Slap in a good clutch and a 9" rear and you should be good to go!
