they are OK for stock rides, if it has one already, but I wouldn't bother for a performance application.

Plus theirs not a whole lot of parts out their for them compaired to a real C6.

I used the FMX for many, many years behind some of my street & strip Cleveland stuff with zero failures due to the trans it's self. But the FMX's small OD input shaft might have a hard time dealing with a 460's bigger torque numbers in a race application.

And unfortunately the FMX's aftermarket support is severely lacking compared to what is available for the C4 & C6.
