Well ? There a few that are relatively Quick. Look for one that has a (Micro Switch) like the Biondo .00 Button- Very Quick--- Dedenbear has a similar Button.
I've also used a Button switch made my Carling # 2x894- Extremely Quick but the Spring weakens with Heat as they all do- need to replace 2 times a year /

Good Luck

Always used Honeywell micro switches. They make one that's button is about .09" diameter and only has about .03" travel. Friend put one in his SS car and it's lightning for him.

You don't need those expensive name brand switches.
I found a bunch of surplus micro switches at a local electronics store (Orvac) that were $1.50 a piece. This is the quickest of the bunch, almost too quick and a little hard to feel with gloves. They had a bunch of different buttons and I picked one that suited me the best.
