this does not screw up the gearbox. Unless you grind it.

Otherwise its perfect timing shifts.

Cain is 100% right. The reason you HAVE a clutch is because most drivers don't know how to/arent good at rev matching. The reason I NEVER grind gears while street driving is because I revmatch every change. Now, when racing and starting in 1st, be careful when grabbing 2nd. This is a common shift to grind. The synchros (double synchros in 1st and 2nd gear) are working real hard because of the large difference in revs between the top of first and second gear.

The Z tranny is synchronized. So, it's near impossible to powershift without the clutch. When driving normally, however, it's quite easy to both up and down shift without the clutch. I do it all the time. 'Course it helps that I have a CDL and have a bit of experience shifting without a clutch. Trucks have dog-boxes, so you pretty much never use the clutch unless stopped.

Is not that he hates shifting but that power shifting is faster so is a common practice for racing. Of course if you are professionally racing at the end of the race the transmission is rebuild / changed.
Bad idea in any other scenario.
even in the racing environment if the transmission is not sequential racers will still apply the clutch.

the only reason why i would apply shifting clutchless if if something happens to the car and i want to drive it to a safe spot/mechanic ext.

or if u wanna impress a chick or a friend lol lol lol.


u guys are right on the coint.
