new with stick...

yea i was juss learnin how to drive stick recently and i was wondering if you guys could tell me some info...
1. in a race wen you step on clutch and rev it up and pop clutch does that fawk up ur transmission? does it mess up the clutch?
2. wen you POWERshift will consistant powershifting screw over ur transmission or fuk up ur clutch

are doing these on the same level as neutral dropping an auto or is it less harsh on the car

yea thats pretty much it

1. It wears out the clutch much quicker and puts some wear and tear ont he transmission as well. If you don;t do this very often, you should be ok. Also, when you are peeling out and whatnot, if you keep the RPMS close to redline, or any kind high rpms constantly, that will put some extra wear on the motor.

2. Powershifting will mess up your trans very quickly, as well with your clutch. You can't say its the same as neutral dropping in an auto cause its different, but both will put wear and tear on the trans.

Be gentle with the power shifting, you'll break your shift linkage. The Celica trans. is fragile wink
