as far as improper shifting, yes that will do some damage but also i have beaten my syncro's shifting 2 fast. + the shorter shifters have less leverage so its going to take a lil more to slam it into gear as well with a longer shifter giving you more leverage will allow smooth gear shifting.
with the way transmissions work you cant truly shift too fast, well you could, but you would have to move at the speed of the flash to do it because you are talking 100ths of a second. like i said i ran one for 3-4 years with 0 issues. This included me smashing around like a stupid kid, racing, normal driving, everything. I punished the hell out of that car and the tranny never screwed up on me. as long as your timing is right with the clutch then you wont cause damage, with the way that the trannys work (getting the next gear spinning before you engage it) thats the only real thing that will screw you up. i say get it and post pix yesterday
