    "floating gears"?

    has anyone ever used this technique on their cars? i cant seem to find a thread on this but i heard about it today and i was wondering how is it possible and if its even good for your transmission? apparently its best to do it on e30s and older audis..but i never heard about this type of shifting before..any help?

      Never heard of it, but I can tell you that the best way to shift gears in an e30 is normally.

        clutchless shifting. rev-matching and slipping it into gear. truckers do this, but they also dont have synchros. dont do it, it's bad.

        If you drive your e30 on stairs, you're gonna have a bad time.

          If that is what it is, then its fine to do if you get it perfect every time. Each time you miss, though, it kills your synchros a bit more.

          Why not just use the clutch?

              I dont see the point unless your worring about time in a race... My 260 doesnt like to be shifted with out the cluth but what the 240 in my 85 318i was fine with it..but theres no point unless your in a race and worried about tenths of a second

                i had to clutchless shift for a few days when my MC bracket was bent, not too hard but for me at least it was alot slower shifts than with the clutch, takes a bit of practice to get the revs just right so itll slip right in

                      My dad did this for a few months in the 318i(trying to show off) ;). Soon after we lost 1st, 2nd, and 4th gear. Now we have another tranny which was easily sourced from a junkyard so no problem there, but either way I don't recommend it.
