Hey guys,

Is it bad not to put the clutch all the way in (to the floor) when I am shifting gears? Is barely going past the engagement point to change gears sufficient? I'm trying to drive smoother and my thinking is that changing gears closer to the engagement point will keep the rpms from dropping too much.

In addition, I tend to sort of let the clutch out slowly without gas at all on some of my shifts. For instance, I would rev to about 3500 in third and then switch into fourth without any gas at all to coast and save some gas.

Is this bad for the transmission? I figure its sort of like engine braking.

Thanks a lot!
