Oh it was one of those things to me where the explanation made it sound more complicated than it actually is. Its like on a door, to keep it from slamming, buildings put those things on the top to resist it and slow it down so it doesn't slam. I might take mine off, it sticks (only the first time you step on it) and makes a very annoying squeaking noise and it's a workout on my achilles. I lubed it but it didn't help for some reason.

The dashpot is there for a reason; it's to keep the revs up when you shift so the shift will be smoother. It prevents the throttle from dropping instantly to idle. No other reason for it.
