Built trans eliminate hard shifting?

How much will trac bars and a built trans smooth out hard shifting and rough TC lockup?

Traction bars will help. Typically a built transmission will have firmer shifts, but custom transmission files can alleviate this.

traction bars help but in order to keep your transmission happy, shift firmness has to be bumped up. their aint much you can do. good tuning can help also
