I haven't seen the first, but from what people post, the 2007 version emphasized what would now be deemed over rotation. If you observe such TI luminaries such as Shinji Takeguchi (???), they rotate to stacked shoulders or nearly stacked shoulders. The new approach emphasizes rotating "just enough" meaning barely exposing the shoulder of the pulling arm. From what I understand, the new approach requires less time between rotations which means that it is capable of generating more speed. Hope this helps.
