Stupid question, probably...

Do you have to engage the clutch to shift with a twin/triple disc clutch?

You could have 1000 disk clutch, doesn't change the basic function of the clutch...

You don't HAVE to disengage the clutch to shift gears. Wicked forearm strength and PERFECT rev matching are key. Your transmission might not make it through a night though.

Racers sometimes don't use the clutch, just forcing the gear shifts, but they only plan on their transmissions lasting a few hours.

Think of it as your choice of one legged leg press, or one armed bench press/lat pull.

If anything, the moar discs, the moar werkout.

Well you really can shift it without using the clutch pedal,but seemingly you don't know what you are doing,so use the clutch.
