It's still just a big-*** rigid bracket. Not sure how it's "better" unless they are referring to the install. Install of the old one was a bit tricky ... probably easy with a lift, but to a lowered car on ramps it was a little frustrating just trying to get both my hands in there around the drive shaft.

I have the older one but was wondering if the new one came out is any better also. This would be good info.

I think the stock fluid is already synthetic ... however Ford has put two different weight fluids in the transmission, eventually moving to a lighter weight fluid, I believe.

I have the Barton shifter as well as Barton Bracket 1.0 and I personally like the heavy duty, notchy, mechanical feel of the shifts. The instructions that came with the shifter indicate that is how it's supposed to feel. Comes down to preference, I guess.

I'm at about 10,500 miles. I don't mind some notchiness heck, I had a 1980 Porsche 911SC that had to be double-clutched in gears 1-3 most of the time. It's the hesitancy to engage gears 2 and 3 that are disconcerting.
