In newer versions of code, you can achieve sub-second HSRP failover by using
the msec keyword on your timers...  Dwiddle as desired.

RSTP can be sub-second, both on link loss and sub-second upon restoration.

interface Vlan64
  ip address

  standby 64 ip

  standby 64 timers msec 500 msec 1500

  standby 64 priority 108
