CHARMM36 was developed by the core CHARMM developers and I have no reason to
doubt it. If there was ever a group to develop good CHARMM parameters, it's them :)
Simply being "newer" is not a reason to doubt it. Have you read the paper where
the parameters were derived? The reproduction of experimental observables is
quite good. Ultimately, the choice is yours, but be ready to justify that
choice to a skeptical audience (reviewers).
