Clutchless driving



Hey guys I heard that it was possible to drive a car without a clutch and or broken one.

Is this true?

I know that you can get out of gear and upshift without using a clutch, but you can not start rolling without using a clutch. Down shifting is possible but I could never do it.

i can do everythign without a clutch execpt for taking off. its pollible to upshift and downshift. if you learn how do to it it becomes quite easy. when you drive a car long enough you feel the car like its a body part.

I've seen my cousin do it in an F150 when his slave cylinder blew up halfway home to Hamilton from Blue Mountain. Everytime we hit a light he had to shut the truck off. To get going again he would just ram it into first and crank the motor with his foot on the gas. Not the smoothest launches! And you wouldn't be doing your tranny any favours by doing that, especially in a BMW. If I were you I'd find a friend with a truck and rent a trailer. It's like $50 for the day.

Didn't you sell your e30 because you needed extra money for school?

I dont drive a standard car so its been a while since Ive had the oppurtunity to do any of this.

to upshift gears without clutch i think but im not sure if this is true:

you cant switch while pushing the gas.
you cant switch while the RPMS are going UP.
you cant be engine breaking

man i cant remember exactly now its been a while since i did it.
