Default Transmission Improvements?

Word is Rubbermount Transmissions are near bulletproof.
Any mods that make them even better, maybe smoother?

In 2018 my clutch Spring plate detonated.... the transmission survived.... installed a SE kevlar kit.... in 2019 totalled the engine due to a broken crankpin... probably overrevved it... or it was a factory failure... only survivor... the tranny... it's not bulletproof... but it's not likely it will fail....
