    Are you taking about shifting without using the clutch? Find the right RPMs so the gears mesh correctly? It was a lot easier to do before the days of sychromesh transmissions......

    I had a 96 tacoma w/ manual transmission and I never had any problems with shifting.

    Why would you want to shift without the clutch? You've gotta match the gears/rpm's almost perfectly and hope it slides right in or else you could chew up some gears and god knows what else.

    The best way to do it? USE THE CLUTCH
