Right on the money. Never lift You'd be surprised at how much time you can lop off, usually .3 seconds just shifting.nikivee said:Slip the clutch quickly and ease into the throttle will net you some fairly good 60' ft times. I found that speed shifting at around 6000 netted me my best time, which was 13.3. Speed shifting is the way to go for best times in my opinion, but it takes practice.
I wouldn't try that either. Always shift with the clutch. Never tried without the clutch and probably couldn't do it anyway. That's way to hard on everything.1fastdog said:Folks, DO NOT shift a transmission that uses synchros and non-striaght gears withour the clutch under throttle.
Straight cut gears and and dog rings in palce of synchros are required. Even with a 4 or 5 speed Jerico "dog" equiped tranny you have to lift off throttle for up shift and blip on downshifts.
I seriously doubt you could get a T56 out of gear at WFO much less get it into the next gear without a serious effort and probable mess as a result. At the least you'll bend the shift forks.
Foot on the mat shifting is possible, but you have to use the clutch with a tranny not designed for clutchless operation.
You certainly can match revs to upshift but it isn't fast and has little point.
You got THAT right. I tried it a couple of times, but by the time you hit the "window", you'd be staring at someone's tail lights. Useful for limping the car home after you've already toasted the trans.1fastdog said:You certainly can match revs to upshift but it isn't fast and has little point.
