where to get the BEST clutchs/Band for 700R4?

ART CARR Has some, but they are high and they only like the stock amount, while others like to stack more(thinners ones) in the clutch pack. What about a Kevlar Band? ART doesn't like it others do. What works the best? Who offers a Good high Performance rebuild kit for it? I don't like TCI stuff or there shift kit. I am going to put a TRANS GO shift kit in it.

We have found that the Borg Warner Hi-Energy clutches ($2.50 each) to be the best for the 3-4 clutch pack. We use 8 BW clutches along with .060 Kolene steels ($3.00 each)or non-Kolene steels ($1.60 each) depending upon application. In the 2-4 band application, we use the Borg Warner Hi-Energy band ($13.00 each). This band contains some Kevlar to resist heat, but has much more holding power. Do not use the Kevlar band. We have used these clutches & band successfully in many 10-11 second cars. The Trans-Go Performance Shift kit is the only way to go. If you have any questions please call me at 800 7763288 Mon-Sat 10-6 PST and I will be glad to answer any questions.
Glad Too Help!!!
