I saw that. Looks like they've addressed the issues with some of their other transmissions - it could be a good one. It'll be interesting to see the real world feedback once people start installing these.

From their website:
  • 600 lb.-ft. of torque capacity; capable of engines speeds of 8,000 RPMs with shifts at 7,500 RPMs.
  • Available in multiple gear ratio configurations (See specifications).
  • Designed for multiple applications with three shifter locations.
  • Compact, end-loaded design provides clearance in most transmission tunnels without floor modifications.
  • Increased case strength with three-piece aluminum housing provides outstanding structural stiffness.
  • Gaskets at all flanges simplifies installation and eliminates fluid leaks.
  • Superior shift-ability through use of multi-cone synchronizers and hybrid synchronizer rings made of sintered bronze and carbon
  • All gears and shafts made from special grade steel (ASTM 4615), providing increased torque carrying capacity.
  • Equipped with a high-performance short-throw billet aluminum shifter that isolates road noise, while providing clean, crisp shifts.
  • Robust design with internal three-rail shift system and steel shift forks.
  • Wide gear width increases gear life and torque capacity.
  • Separate GM and Ford case patterns and input configurations. Integrated GM and Ford transmission mount patterns
