The increased weight gives the shift mechanism more inertia, smoothing out the shift action.

I have the Steeda short-throw in my Focus, and love it. You need to get the combo (bracket + tri-ax) for the best result.

Yes, throws are reduced, yes the shift action is slightly notchier, but I prefer it that way. There's no question as to whether it's in gear or not.
