Edit: For why this "seems" to work and a shortcut to achieve the same effect, see below post.

I've seen some players on this forum complain that it's difficult to get a short EF out after a dash back. I've been doing this quite a lot, and I find the easiest way to perform it is to do a quarter-circle motion after the dash back. Using terminology you might find on the ryu/ken boards, the input for this is 4236: back, followed by a quarter circle from down to forward. This will register as a tilt instead of a smash, and come out instantly after the dash.

Might be common knowledge, but I thought it could help someone.

Update: Through closer examination, it seems there's a threshold from above the diagonal to somewhat below the horizontal where it will produce a tilt sideB even if you smash the stick, no rolling the stick necessary. I'm probably hitting B within this threshold during the quarter-circle input, hence this post.

This tech is very useful and can also help when ledge trapping. Just do the same thing from a standing position.
