Barton shifter snaps in half??!!!??

Ok. I have had the Barton hifter in my 2013 GT for 18 or so months. On the way home from work last night the shifter snapped in half... Like off?? WTF? Anyone ever heard of this. I am going to put stock in tomorrow and order the MGW which i was going to change to eventually i thought. How does this even happen. Like the metal rod running through whole assembly snapped.

Too many muscles. Stay away from the gym for awhile and you should have better luck!

it has happened with Barton in the past, to a few people actually, and Barton will take care of the issue, get it replaced, sell it, use that towards an MGW

That sucks I was wanting the Barton. Did you get it from the Walmart stang store lol :p just busting your chops. Did your shifter shake a lot? My stock shifter with just a ford racing ball vibrates pretty bad.

It does shake, or did is more accurate I guess. It did even more so after I got the BlowFish racing bracket. At least I get to drive the girlfriends mustang while waiting for parts

Sorry for ya ! That sucks! I'm glad no one was injured or killed. You will have a MGW so soon and it will feel better and like your driving a slightly different car. Good Luck!
-OK, Now back to pushing iron. And, please, don't ever get angry with me. Please.

Lol, saw you post that **** on instagram. That is literally insane. I wonder if they just made a batch with the wrong alloy of metal or something. Can't believe it. Def. have them replace it and sell it to get the better one.
