"Gearbox overheated"
Guys, I had not tried a launch-control in a while. Tonight I decided to do one. My car is a DSG. I had been driving the car for half an hour before on the highway.

Manual gearbox mode. Normal procedure. I take off in 1st gear, and as I approach the redline I switch to 2nd gear. I got a "Gearbox overheated" message in red color in the MFD and the engine immediately stalled. After a few seconds, I was able to drive off normally. No further incident. This had not happened before and the 3 tunes that changed since my last launch-control are the KW coilovers, the Wavetrac LSD and the H&R swaybar which I got installed during the Christmas break. Do you guys have any thoughts on this ? I don't particularly worry about it, just wondering what could have triggered this.

I presume this means no more 0-100km/h for me !!!

(outside temperature: 13degrees celcius, if it matters).

Improper LSD install?

I was thinking along this line, but maybe not enough fluid during install
How do you like the LSD
Haven't had a chance to hammer mine temps are too low for traction

My first thought is that the fluid level is low.

Thanks guys, going to the garage on saturday to have a check.

I haven't hammered the car yet so I have no opinion about it yet.

I also am leaning towards low on fluid
