When the car is off, you don't have to push in the clutch to shift gears...

Could be a bad tranny. But I have a good one, and can do this. Its called clutchless shifting. Its all about throttle control. If you rev, then when your lettin your foot off the gas, you slip the stick, and it slides out of gear, no popping. You can get back in gear, but you have to match the RPM with the speed in that gear within like 100rpm, you gotta be good. I trained myself to do it, grinded 3 times lightly through the whole training day. I know it was bad, but now i can do it on almost any car NO grinding. I reccomend against this, but once I figured out how to do it safely, its damn fun.

no problem
you can go through the gears in any car without the clutch when the cars off...and any car will stall if you push it in without the clutch when its on, see to go through the gears when the cars on you have to be <U>moving</U>

I dont know if you guys have ever heard of it, but there is a thing called sweet-shifting. EVEN when the car is on and moving, its the point when the flywheel & clutch is in perfet sync, and you can switch gears without disengaging the clutch. I dont recomend that though
