Re: T5 clutchless shifting

No harm done IF the speeds are exactly matched when you engage the gear. If there is any mismatch, the synchro will try to correct it, which will require that it change the speed of the entire engine. Since synchronizers are basically little clutches, that obviously causes a lot of wear on them.
