direct drive powerglide setup help

I have a request from a buddy that circle track races to build a direct drive powerglide. I've build quite a few Powerglides for circle track use but never a direct drive converterless one. He says there are guys running them and they have no clutch pedal or valve to turn off the line pressure. I see TCI sells an internal bleed valve body. Anyone ever use one? I have the book "Powerglide Transmission Handbook" but it doesn't go into too much detail and says to use the manufacturers instructions for setup. Anyone have any experience with these?
