No, that'd be adding load on the tranny and engine mounts for no reason, especially if you have a very inclined driveway. Chalk the wheels, once the car is rested, then clutch in, engage the gear and clutch out so there is no strain on the driveline.
"Driving is like a narcotic, an addiction that can take over lives. It ruins people, breaks families apart, and even kills. It’s habit that needs to be fueled. Time, money, rationality, sweat, knuckle skin, and anyone who disapproves are of little importance to a driver, and are often overlooked. Hi, I’m Nelson, and I’m a drivaholic."
