Default Shifting question on 5 speed 04 mustang gt

Is there a way to shift our cars without using the clutch? I was talking to my future father in law and said something about a spot in the revs in each gear where the trans can be shifted without using the clutch. Is this true? I'm not extremely car savvy so it's the first I've heard of this.

Only if you really hate your trans! I could do it from 1-2 with very low rpms and going slow, but I would not be apt to try it going fast. Maybe with the cars of the 60 and 70s were able to do that.

I cant say for the mustang for sure but I always thought it was the old transmitions with out syncros that you could do that with, I never tryed to shift without the clutch on any of my cars but my girlfriend shifts her eclipse with out the clutch all the time and it works fine for her but she isnt racing it either, I had asked my dad about it once and he said you wind it up tight let off the gas just a little bit and and you can feel it sync up, shift and hit the gas agian but all my 5 speed cars were expencive and i didnt want to break them so i never tryed it lol

I did this easily in my mustang. And actually, the higher gears were easier to rev match shift.

Basically you have to find that point in the rpms that would exactly match the speed you are moving for that gear. It's all a feel thing. And to go from a stop, you of course need to use the clutch...

I was just curious if it could be done. The plan isn't to drive without using the clutch regularly

Yes it can be done, very easily as well, shocked me when I learned how years ago when I lost my slave cyl on my civic.

It seems to be much easier in the manual trucks I've driven, my 06 mustang gt doesn't like it at all, so I don't.

You will annihilate your syncros unless someone shows you first honestly. This is NOT something you want to do or try while driving 'spiritedly' either...

There is a clutch for a reason. Back on the day guys would grind off every other tooth to make this easier but I don't see the benefit if your driving around
