trany questions

if somone allready answered these questions im sorry for being a recockulous individual
but im just tryn to get as many answers as possible before i get my wrx next summer:

- at what rpm is the correct time to shift (from 1st the 2nd etc.)

- is it true that shifting at lower rpms is bad for the tranny?

- would it be more bennifical to get gears that can handle more torque or stonger more durrable gears that can hadle abuse

- is it possible to reduce the amount of force needed to engange the clutch

i would very much appreciate to get as much feed back as possible

(please dont hate just tryn to learn)

No one should hate on you for trying to learn.

1. fuel efficient shifts are around 3k
2. don't think so but not 100%
3. yes it would be beneficial ### you'd be able to slam gears almost without consequence but it costs a good amount of money to do an upgraded tranny, ppg's are the way to go
4. are you talking about loosening the spring load of the clutch? Not good if thats the case

Good answers longshot

Here is what I think

1. I usually shift from 1-2 between 2500-3000rpms
2. No it should not be bad for the tranny, but I always let out the clutch a little slower, just to avoid any wear on the tranny. I would rather buy a clutch, than a tranny.
4. Dont know, but did you know that when you shift gears you dont need to press the clutch to the floor. You can engage it half way, but you have to be able to shift the car smooth, so nothing grinds. Plus I also rev match, it helps the tranny
3. Same answer for both, stronger gears will be more durable. PPG's are expensive, but you can beat the he11 out of them, but if you are to rough the next thing you will be buying drive shafts

***I switched 3 and 4 around so my answers, just match up the numbers. Anything else let us know

you know how you have to push the clutch pedal all the way down, is it possible to reduce the force and distance u need to push it all the way to engage it. like instead of going knee down, you could just do a ankel tap. sorry if this sounds stupid
