Re: T5 clutchless shifting

[img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] Drive a stick enough and you know at what engine rpm vs. vehicle speed the next gear will slide in at, going up and coming down. In fact you can over drive a gear(long shifting as opposed to short shifting?) then skip a gear or two or three or four. As my wife says, "You wanna see my famous first to fouth shift?" Don't worry hon, I'll catch the rod when it comes flying out the side of the engine. You only need the clutch to start. When you are coming to a stop let it coast a little and slip her in the big "N" position.
