I have realized that the way I have increased the speed of my fingers is mostly just by playing. You play stuff over and over and eventually the muscles begin to develop, strengthen, and work with greater coordination. I later thought that by doing trills for as long as I could stand it as an exercise was helping my finger speed but then I wondered if I was actually faster or just imagining that I was. I do chromatics everyday primarily because I suck at them but also because I think they help with coordination, but not speed. Increasing speed by purely by playing alone is just not cutting it anymore though because I am not making any more progress. What are some good drills that you master shreders do to increase your finger speed? I'd also do drills that don't require a guitar, you know like stuff you could do while driving or sitting in class. But I don't know any good ones.
