If it is on blocks,
drain it, put it on the bench, and tear it down looking for the problems I have described.
Use a good rebuild manual and my post on NastyZ should easily get you through it.

Jake, I respect your knowledge, but this is a "new" tranny built by TCI. It only has about 300 miles on it, all easy driving with a few burnouts. Of the possibilities you mention, which are the most likely? BTW, the tranny is still on warranty, but I hafta pay to ship it to one of TCI's warranty stations.

I would pay the shipping and hope they re-imburse you for it when they find the problem.
My guess is the sun shell rubbing the case. The sun shell is driven by the direct drum. They are engaged together by lugs on the direct drum that catch the sun shells slots.
It is somewhat common for them to be flared outward over time from the direct drum cocking the sun shell during hard acceleration.
This was a common problem on early 700's too.
My next guess is that you may have damaged the intermediate roller clutch doing burnouts and you are getting some noise from that, however when they fail on a Th350, they usually FAIL.
