If you read any serious racing book, or talk to pros, they don't all believe in a short shifter anyway. The 1/10 (or less) of a second it saves you is totally lost if you miss one shift, which gets easier and easier to do as you give yourself less leverage. "Notchy" is bad, and could lead to missed shifts under tense situations.
