Who builds a good C-4?

I am in the market for a built C4 to go behind a 408w, I want it to handle quite a bit of power and have a transbrake, all the bells and whistles etc...5 years ago I ran a PA super comp with good luck but I want to see who else is out there now.

I have read some good things about Redneck and Dynamic, what are your guys opinions?

My C4 was originally a PA Competition version, then I put a trans-king transbrake valve body on it, and now trans king is handling the rebuild. I was having another local guy rebuild it and getting about a year per build, this is the 1st time trans king has done it and so far so good. Probably got 80-100 passes mixed 1/8 and 1/4 mile. I use the brake on every hit launching between 4k and 4400 rpms. 6.50s 1/8 mile, 10.30s 1/4 mile all motor.

I'm using the redneck C4. Only making 320Whp but it works great. I also use a redneck converter and it is spot on. Redneck told me that it will handle 800hp, I'll never be able to test it.
