2014 Mustang locked out of third gear

Has anyone still had issues of being locked out of third gear WITH the Barton shifter and 2 post bracket installed? I'm still occasionally getting locked out of third gear. It happens during normal acceleration as well as heavy acceleration. It doesnt happen often, maybe once or twice a week. It doesnt seem to grind or anything like that and I have never powershifted the car. Any ideas? Is this normal?

If it's intermittent it may be hard to pinpoint
Try several ****s with the motor off and clutch in if it's flawless and it only locks out under a load, then it could be a bad third gear syncro.

Its fine with the motor off and the clutch in. Its also fine with the car just idling. Is there any way of checking for a bad third gear synchro? Are there any other suggestions?
