C4 planetary gears burning up

I am circuit racing my 65 Mustang with a C4 Trans.
The problem is the planetary gears, torrington bearing and washers are getting too hot and wearing the washers.
The planetary gear is the three gear with torrington bearings from Broader Performance.
I have done the oiling mods and use an external trans cooler.
My races are about 8 minutes long and most of the time I am in second gear so the planetary gears are spinning fast most of the time.
My question is has anyone circuit raced with a C4 trans and had no problems with the planetary gears?
