I heard about doing this in a thread a while back and I didn't actually know it was possible. But today on my way home from work, for some reason, I decided to try it, and it worked. I soon discovered that 2500RPM (which is pretty much where I shift anyway for gas economy) is the sweet spot for shifting without using the clutch. Now my question is, is this something that would be good to continue to do? Sure it can save the clutch, but what about the transmission? When I shift without the clutch, there was no grinding, although I had to use just a little bit more force with shifting, but nothing excessive. Thankies.
