? about 700R4 clutch packs

To the techs and anyone that have used the Raybestos Z-Pak, do you think this clutch pack would handle WOT shifts into 4th gear?

What about the 2-4 band, is the wide carbon fiber band best?

Any suggestions and discussions are welcome.

I'm trying to build the ultimate 700R4 to put in my S10 pro-street truck.

The engine is a 406SBC, 375-400 hp, 425-450 Lb ft torque. 9" ford, 4.56 rear. 31X14X15 Hoosier slicks for the strip and 31X18.5X15 MT Sportsmans for the street.

My ride.

Z-Packs are good & from what I've been reading the Carbon band is the best available.

Do you think they would survive in a drag race environment? Even though the truck is mostly run on the street, we want to race it a few times a year.

the red ALto brand band works well too.

the key here is the drum area the band applies on MUST be flat. Many used drums are cupped some.

I'd suggest a new drum. The remachined drums are flat , but material was removed to make them flat and I think the drum can warp again easier since it is thinner

I will plan on a new drum there. Thanks Crosley. Do you have any experience with the Z-Pak mentioned in my initial post?

That's good to hear. I think I will plan to use the Z-Pak for 3-4 clutch. What do you guys think about me using the blue clutches in the other clutch packs?
