Allhienz i kinda understand what your trying to say, but can you fix your typos so we can understand your point completely.
I can list many others that want it done as well.. Trust me I get it. Like I said before he does not have the capacity to be able to get it done in a timely matter as far as I know. He is working on getting every car he has had there for over a month out of the shop. Cars came in that were supposed to be a quick turnaround and ending up needing a lot more. There's plenty of ways it could be resolved but his way is his way. I don't have say on it and others saying how he should do this or that won't change the fact that it is still his shop. Whether or not it puts a soiled look on him or not.Ok so you have had success with LPF building you a strong 10r80 Trans and maybe thats why people are frustrrated with the fact that NOBODY can get hold of them with any consistancy other then fellow buddies that that they deal with....if what they can do for themselves and come on here and boast about like we this and i that and me me me and a guy like me with a virgin trans willing to send and have it built to the same spec unable to get straight answers or just excuses makes no sense really....i can list you 3-4 folks that i personally know that would pallet there 10r80 and ship it to them but after seeing the 11-12 day period between reaponses and aome if the replies in here its also quite difficult to want to even take that plungs...
I disagree with each paragraph of yours.
Here is why:
You keep mentioning the 10r80 needs "stronger parts". Stronger parts means something is breaking due to the raw power of the car and putting the power down. Nothing has snapped or torn itself apart in the 10r80. Valve body's is a normal thing to have issues with due to clutch material getting into the valve and causing them to malfunction. THIS HAPPENS IN ALL TRANSMISSIONS WHEN THERE IS TRASH IN THE FLUID. I have seen it on 6r80's as well. Many of them. Go talk to your local service advisor that actually knows a thing or two at your ford dealership. They should be able to run a log in their system of all the 6r80 valve bodies replaced.
Also to say that the 6r80 has been 7's reliably is hysterical. Have you not noticed that car only runs at one event a year? And at that one event has broken something inside the trans each time? Lets also not forget that trans has almost an entire billet insides. If you haven't seen intermediary shafts break in half or the one way clutch issue, or the planetary issue in the 6r80 then you and your "buddies" aren't pushing these cars very hard at all. Every transmission has problems when you push them over twice what they were built to do. The only issue with the 10r80 right now is the clutches. Which actually happens to be a problem in the 6r80 when you get to 900whp and push the car. Just like the 10r80. The only issue to that is finding ways to add more clutches/steels per clutch pack. Which is exactly what LPF has been able to do with his custom machining of the parts inside the 10r80. That is the reason my transmission has had it "easier" as you said. Secondly the white 18 mustang that LPF did is a complete full weight, full interior car with a 250lbs driver. With the same transmission modifications I have.
Davids trans was spec'd by JPC to be good for 1500whp. Unfortunately it broke, which is normal in the racing world and to be expected. Even the baddest of the bad race cars break parts. Yes, they are proven transmissions but they still break... I don't know why you have this imagination that nothing is going to break or go wrong in the racing world.
Oh and one last thing to battle your little 6r80 vs 10r80. The 10r80 has been 7's with no upgraded billet parts inside. Only machining of the clutch packs to fit more clutches and steels per pack. Mine has been 4 8.0's consistently with nothing done but machining to allow more clutches/steels per clutch pack as well. No broken one way clutches, no broken intermediary shaft, no billet planetary's needed, no completely different hubs to get rid of multiple gears etc. The list goes on.
It seems pretty stupid to me to complain a transmission “sucks” when you are asking it to do something it wasn’t designed for. It handles a 460 hp engine incredibly well- far better than ANY manual transmission. If you put ridiculous power into it then you are at fault, not the design of the transmission. It’s like blaming a driveshaft with a 130 mph limit for breaking when you go 150. The Ford engineers who designed didn’t do it expecting unlimited power to go into it.

There is a procharged car in Dallas that his 10r80. His own personal car his his built 10r80. Also a whipple car on this forum has his built 10r80. I can't remember his @ for the life of me. I'll do some searching and see if I can find him on here and have him put his input. Even back when he wasn't AS backed up as he is now it still did take time due to the custom machining that was needed for it(he did what you want to do, shipped a trans to LPF, built it, send it back). I wish I could help you guys out more and get the ball rolling on 10r80's like mine out there.
Earlier I did see you mention that Lund has the most boosted 8 second cars out there. While this is correct, that does not mean that they aren't going through transmissions (clutches) after every 4-5th pass either. Quality vs Quantity.
The standalone transmission controller available doesn't work well for high HP applications. Lund and a few others tried that out with bad results. Heinz looked into doing it and so did I. They told us, bad idea.Can you swap a built 6r80 into a 18-20 gt and use a stand alone controller to control it? If so, it seems like that would be a viable solution for a reliable high power handling transmission...
