I have the ratchet style shifter on my Y88....and I don't get that either.  I'm really trying to figure out the advantages of having it.  I'm not being critical.....I'm just trying to understand.

I guess the purpose behind it is so if you are drag racing, you dont run from 1st to drive or neutral by accident. Not really a big deal on a street car but if misshifted while racing it might be. I think the Ratchet shifter and dual gate are more "COOL" options then anything else.
