A short throw shifter will not allow the gears to engage any quicker. It will shorten the distance you have to move your arm, but that is not what controls the speed of a shift. Heavy duty trannys just can't shift as fast as smaller ones. I can bang through the gears in mine pretty quickly, but it grinds on every shift. Not good for the long run. You can play with the shift points until you find the sweet spots.

to Derrick. you can put a southbend clutch (or something) in to help stop the spinning mass quicker but you aint gonna bang gears like a gasser.
