      I've launched the car in stock form several times with no issues but earlier this week I flashed to stage 2 ecu/dsg with UM, I've launched the car roughly 5 times since and 3 out of the 5 launches popped up transmission overheating just briefly and then would go away. I've seen some say it's due to low fluid level but it's strange before tune I never seen it overheating. Any advice is appreciated.

      Def not a tune issue. I was hot lapping my car at the drag strip with UM tune and I had no issues with it overheating or anything with the trans.

      I would probably check your fluid level

      I checked the dsg oil level today and it is fine. Honestly, I didn't think it was tune related. I'll drive it a while longer and see if it shows up again when I do another launch.

      Think its working as intended... Mk6 used to give a warning and prevent LC after repeated launches to protect compomemts from over heating

      did you experience a bunch of wheel spin before it flashed?

      I did notice some wheel spin prior to the warning.
