Eliminating harsh angles that the shifter is forced to go through during the course of shifting between gears can allow a driver to make smoother, more rapid gear shifts. Racers and serious performance drivers tend to prefer the quickness and reliability provided by short shifters, as even split seconds spent on nonessential maneuvers can make the difference between a winning race and a losing one. Effective short shifters still activate each gear in its entirety when shifting, but transition between gears more rapidly than expected from stock shifts, making this a popular, and useful, upgrade.
