Shift problem...

I found out that I could shift without press clutch when the engine is NOT on. Is it normal? I remember I couldn't do that before.

why not...the wheels aren't turning and the crank's not spinning. You can say you know how to rev match and can "...Drive a Standard Without Using the Clutch"...hahahaha. grin You'd impress one person on this board, on his B-day too! rofl

is normal, the only reason why you have a clutch is to pop the gear in while its spinning, so if its not spinning, then why not, some old cars though, when they get real banged up and the trannys gone to shit, then you wont need a clutch when its SPINNING, thats when you know your car is about to puke on you!!
