Mod and tuned to the point the cvt couldnt handle anymore.

CVT is fundamentally weaker than a Stick shift. people stilll tune up the boost and race them anyway.

Issue is user error and abuse.

I'm currently FBO + W1 turbo + e85 blend on a custom tune on mine. Making nearly 300whp. I have yet to blow up my rods or my transmission. *knock on wood*.

Brake launching for example.

Why would you think full throttle means abuse?
