T-350 was shifting firm, now shifts softer?

I've had my 82 GMC Sierra hot rod project for about 3 months now. The transmission is a TH350, it has a shift kit in it.

Here is the weird thing, when I got the truck it was shifting with that "snap" you can feel with a shift kit.

Over the last couple of weeks my truck is now shifting quite smooth, and not having that snap feel that it was having. It runs/performs/shifts great still, just smoother. Trans fluid is clean and full.

Anyone have any idea what could cause a shift kit to start having a smoother feel?

Thanks guys.

My guess is they put a shift kit in a used trans and now the cluches are wearing from the extra stress. Someone else may have a different idea.

Yeah, actually the trans has a full b&m rebuild kit installed as well.

Maybe it could be something to do with the weather lately.
