I just installed the Steeda shifter. When I was looking on youtube for install vidios, I saw the Barton brace. It looks cool and stronger being billet aluminum, but I thought.....thats got to be a waist of money!I do not have the Barton Shifter because I had already bought the Steeda unit when I found out about it. And thats OK I'm good with the 20% reduction. I did buy the Barton brace and it makes a world of difference. Doesn't matter what shifter you have, stock, Barton, Steeda, or Brand X you need the Barton Brace. PERIOD.
Unless my understanding is way off, why would it be bad for synchros? As long as you're not jamming it into every gear, it should be fine. The shifter essential just changes the pivot point so that your hand moves less to move the linkage the same amount. You will feel more effort going into gear, but I don't see how that hurts the synchros.I think the wait for MGW is gonna be worth it.
Also read that anything more then a 15-20% reduction in throw over stock is bad for syncros. Dunno how much truth that holds.
I have heard that the 2 available shifters are both an improvement over stock.
I have the Steeda shifter and the Barton bracket, and it does make a significant difference. The shifts are much more solid. There is no movement to the shift at all.I just installed the Steeda shifter. When I was looking on youtube for install vidios, I saw the Barton brace.

But you say its a gotta have. I just dont see how this could make much improvement. Tell me more!
