This is what one guy posted about angle of bracket

About the alignment angle of rod/bracket: you want the shifter rod to be perpendicular (90deg) to the bracket in the point you need the most force.

For most of us it's at downshifting when all the backlash has already been pulled out i.e. when the pressure starts to rise on the top of your foot. So the actual angle of the rod should be about 85 degrees with bracket "leaned towards upshifting".

Reason for this is that upshifting requires a lot less force (gears get sucked in when you match the revs i.e. roll off the throttle momentarily) compared to downshifting. Because of the reverse pattern it's easier to apply force to upshifting and you can help downshifting a bit by properly aligning the rod/bracket angle.
