My GT-P gearbox not good!

Yesterday i took the wife and two wipper snappers for a long drive down the coast, this was the first time ive had the thing on the open road since taking delivery because of work commitments and found a strange noise(like a dronning noise) coming from the gearbox only when in fifth gear.The noise only appears when lightly cruising at speeds between 95-120 km/h and you lightly touch the throttle, if you push a little further it goes if you back of it goes. at first it sounded like the diff bearings where stuffed as this is common when testings diff this way BUT it only happens in fifth gear. I heard it mainly because i didnt have the stereo loud because of the kids sleeping. i had it at the dealer today and the service manager is going to look further into it.
I drove the demo GT and it has the same problem has anyone else noticed this dronning noice i have in their GT/GT-P?

My Tremec vibrates badly through the shifter and the clutch pedal all the time. It almost feels like the clutch pressure plate is out of balance. It's bad enough that my feet go to sleep if I keep my foot on the clutch pedal between shifts.

I get the impression that the Tremecs have variable characteristicsas talking to many owners each car seems to have its own little anomolies.

Mine sometimes rattles in 3rd gear under acceleration, and sometimes crunches a little into first on a down change.

Are you meant to get a driving course with a GT/GT-P purchase?

The info and the Owner packs will be making their way out later this month according to my info for those who are in the backlog. Subsequent deliveries will arrive about a month after the car.

Cheers
