My car makes about 550 to 600 rwhp and have read some builds where a lot of guys are using the stock low/reverse bands in 500hp builds. So when is a kevlar or kelvar blend low/reverse band needed?

The kevlar rear band isn't needed. Its not performing any "performance" task during operation and is already engaged even if you are using a reverse brake VB.
Put your effort/$'s into the intermediate band, its the one doing the work.

Yeah i agree though i don't think the price is any different for kevlar so i use them. Sometimes i buy reco bands too if new isn't available and the reco ones are sometimes kevlar too.
