It's not just the clutches,
The best clutches in the world wont help without adequate line pressure or tuning to keep them engaged when they need to be.

Successful Build Recipe:

Superior Frictions
More of Them
Higher Pump Pressure
Programming

Leave any of those out and it's still only as strong as the lowest common denominator.

Thin isn't the issue, my Red Eagle frictions are no thicker than stock, might even be slightly thinner.
The surface material and the amount of total surface contact area are more critical than thickness.
(adding more thin frictions can increase holding power by an extra 50% over fewer thick frictions)

More frictions = more contact area is engaged = more holding power
more holding power = less slip.

More line pressure further increases holding power = even less slip.

Less slip = less chance of burning frictions

Seriously, check out the clutch packs and descriptions here:

Thanks BRH.

Looking more at this, the line pressure booster go well with a VB? I plan on doing the Sharadon stage 3 VB and I've always been curious about if the line booster would also compliment that.

Also, since I don't have the ability lift my truck to remove the trans for the TC, I plan on having a shop do that as of right now. If they are dropping the trans for the TC would buying the Red Eagle master kit from the website you posted go along will with that? I'm understanding the stock clutch packs are weak upgrading them is a good idea, but I don't know what all parts I should be upgrading. I don't plan to fully build the trans but if the TC has to come out to be changed anyways and this is something that can go along with it and isn't going to hurt I might do it as well.

Again, I'm understanding the problem but I don't fully know all about the transmissions and how they work so I'm kind of just throwing parts out there that I'm understanding to be weak.

Line Pressure booster is just a resistor,
the PCM will adapt back to stock within a month, so no real benefit
...what do you expect for $49 though,

a Diablo CMR can make a better full time pressure adjustment for you though

I don't know which clutch upgrade options are best for you, sorry, not qualified to comment on that.

There's no need for a lift, This is how I did mine:
(couple ramps and a couple floor jacks)

Hey BRH,
I'm getting a trans built at L&M right now and will be getting him to ship it to the sweet grass border crossing where I'll pick it up. I know you did this as well, I'm wondering what if any paperwork you needed at the border? And what taxes/duty did you have to pay? I want to make sure I have my poop in a group before I show up at the border with $3000 plus in parts (I'm also getting new JBA longtubes and a TC shipped there as well). Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Bring your passport, all your receipts and a high limit debit or credit card LOL

You will have to pay 5% tax on everything.

Mike never cleaned up our cases exterior, no paint
just lots of grease and grime so they looked like a crappy old junk yard cores.

They almost waived us through for nothing
but we ended up paying about $80 each (I'll shoot you a pm why)



We de-greased and painted them once we got them home






BTW, good Call on the JBA LT's!

Got mine last week
