    If we order this shifter from your website, do you have them in stock for immediate shipment? White plain ball with black "Barton" flat stick to be exact. Thanks!

    This is the best upgrade I've bought since I got my 2017 GT PP in July. I initially had the springs on medium (4 springs total.) After 1000 miles, I added the two additional springs. I wanted a race car type feel (at least what I think is a race car feel:)) and that's what a Barton feels like - solid and firm shifting. And with me, all the springs in is where it's at.
    I installed it while my car was on rhino ramps. It took me over 5 hours to install. Note: I took my time, I was working in a very tight space and lighting wasn't the best. It was at night too. I was purposely slow and meticulous. I would not recommend having a shop install it for you. It would be a waste of money. Install is easy. There's multiple install videos. If you use Jack stands it'll be quicker.
    I chose to do body mount. I purchased a BOOM MAT 12x12 I think. Just to ensure little NVH.
    I traced the sound proofing material and just stuck the Boom Mat on top of it. Doing that actually made the shifter area quieter than stock. I have zero noise.....I mean ZERO.
    Anyways, the hybrid is nice. For me it was between the Barton, MGW, and Steeda Triax.
    MGS didn't let you keep stock reverse lockout and Steeda reuses stock linkage (if memory serves me right.) Barton was the solid choice. Complete unit.
    Hope this helps someone.

    Regards

    Anyone having issues with theirs? When my car is cold, I get a workout trying to put the car in gear. Even rowing through the gears is a pain. Now when the car heats up, the shifter loosens up and it's great.

    Anyone else having similar issues?

    I drove my car to the dodger game the other day and was stuck in traffic. While it never overheated, it was exposed to hot temps. The next day, I went out to my car and noticed my shifting was really stiff. I called Barton to see if it needs lube, and they said there's a bushing that may have melted a bit. They sent a new high temp (450 degree) bushing to me so I can replace it. Very quick customer service. I will change it out next week. FYI, I absolutely love this shifter!!

    I recently had the Barton Hybrid 3 installed on my 2015 GT PP. Dave on the phone was super helpful answering my questions. I wanted to get the Barton but I was being swayed by the local pony shop toward MGW since he claimed he has never heard of Barton. After speaking with Dave I decided to move forward with Barton and don't regret it a bit. This shifter has made shifting so much more precise and smooth.

    Sorry for getting off the topic. I ended up with the pull up because I wanted to keep the OEM look. Barton provides the billet pull up replacing the plastic one and it looks and works great.

    Hey Dave, I've sent you a PM about a bushing in my Hybrid 3. Can you have a look please? I'd like to get something sorted.

    Thanks!

    Had the same issue with mine as stated above, really hard shifting, spoke with Dave Senior on the phone SUPER helpful, they are sending me the new revised bushings. I'll update everyone as soon as I have them swapped out with the old ones. Purchased shifter April 2017, 1500 miles on it. Love it otherwise...

    UPDATE: Hard Shifting: Spoke with Barton last week, knew of the Hybrid 3 hard shifting immediately, Paul was extremely helpful. Sent out the new bushings (3) due to old ones having a low heat tolerance.

    Had my shop replace them, immediate improvement, just a heads up to anyone having this issue with hard shifting at startup or cold weather then easier shifting throughout use and the car heating up, its 100% the bushings they originally manufactured for this unit.

    They were MORE than helpful with this situation, amazing company and my shifter is exactly what I was hoping for. Like butter.

    Any labor day sale coupon? Also, a few of you who posted had new bushings (3) from Barton, does everyone get the new bushing that are better at heat tolerance?

    Is there NOBODY else that owns an EB and wants a hybrid shifter?? I can't believe I'm the only one.

    If there are any EB owners out there - please communicate your disbelief & frustration that there is no hybrid shifter avail for our cars despite the fact that they have been on the market for four years.
