My bonne, when I had it, didn't like doing that. My GA for some reason doesn't show the same jerky hesitation to my R to D shifting. Learning to spend a little time in Neutral on the way through is a good idea though, I'd think.

yeah from the limited knowledge I have of how the tranies work on these cars it woudl be hard to break anything. I believe automatics are a bit more forgiving than doing that with a stick.

as long as you dont hit the gas while your still rolling backward and shifting i think it is ok. You hit neutral, and the clutch should be out during the shift?

Toss it in R, mash the throttle down, toss er in 1st and let the tires SCREAM

working in a transmission shop myself, the gears actually fit together under touque going from R To D, but D to R can be VERY damaging, really fast.

The only thing you affect in a manual trans design doing that is the clutch and how much you have to "fan" the clutch to stop the reverse momentum and get the car rolling forward. You get really good at doing it in semi'* after a while, and when you can do it in a semi, a ca is a piece of cake to do it in.

All I know is that the couple of times I have done this I heard some not so sexy sounds coming from under the car...... Trust me when I say I have been very careful since then!!!

Overall it'* not going to show up for a while. However it is best to come to a complete stop.

I noticed Morty used to do it quite a bit before his trans rebuild. And it almost always had a nice THUD when he started on the throttle. Not a good feeling. Since the new trans..it'* a nice shift into D. Keep up the good stuff Morty.

I have never done it. I always come to a complete stop before shifting. When I shift from D to R I have to wait a good 4 secs for it to engage anyways. My reverse is weak but the forward drive gears are good, thankfully.
