One of my sons has a 2012 Boss 302 LS that he bought as a track car, and so far he's had the gearbox rebuilt twice by Ford. The good news is that Ford has picked up the tab, no questions asked, but apparently there's no fix/mod to the basic design yet. That means they'll need to pick up the tab at least a couple more times before the warranty runs out.

He's looking at a 1LE Camaro as a possible replacement over time, while the M3 remains as a DD - partly because replacement would be a problem if he wadded it up on track, but also because it is clearly slower, both in a straight line and on a road course. There's also the brake problem, of course, but that's easily remedied through track-only pads and rotors.
