      Wouldn't the transmission need more than just the clutch after an event like that?

      the transmission is the least of his worries in that video. not sure what a new S55 costs, but it's got a replacement one now.

      i money shifted my spec car on track. top of third, into 2nd instead of 4th. engine spun up over 10krpm (based on where i saw the needle), and it seemed fine ... 2 laps later it dropped a valve. failed retainer.

      so, i had the head repaired, sanded the dent in the piston flat, and ran the engine for another season. cost me about 500 bucks total

      Ooof that video is rough. When I shift from 3rd to 4th, I move my hand so that my thumb is down and my pinky is up, palm on the side of the shifter, so when I pull back quickly any mistake will get me 6th instead of 2nd.

      Kind of looks like it was a euro delivery and he wasn't used to the car yet. But yeah I don't really get it either...must have taken some serious force on the shifter there. Oh well, good luck to the driver.

      Yeah the clutch on that car will still be fine, based on the vid he bent more than a few valves at minimum. You can tell he tried to go back in gear and accelerate and the car wasn't having it. Valve float at those speeds will result in piston impacts QUICK. Usually, in these situations the bottom end will be okay, but the head will be trashed.

      Found the old RSX vid

      The transmission isn't the problem when you money shift. The issue is that you can momentarily rev the engine to 9,000-10,000+ rpm's. This usually results in valve damage at the least, and a replacement engine at the worst.

      Hope that guy has the money for a new engine. The S55 we purchased was ~$22K with a 10% discount.

      Got lucky in my GLI once going from 3rd-4th but wound up in 2nd. Something didn't quite feel right so I didn't totally dump the clutch pedal which allowed the clutch to take some force and slow everything down just enough to wind up bouncing off the limiter. scary moment though.

      If anyone can extract the audio of that video clip as WAV, I can run some analysis and find out exactly what RPM it revved to.

      To be totally honest it’s not a big deal. And now it’s so natural I do it in daily driving as well. It’s just second nature.

      Good thread is good.

      Driving my turd truck home this afternoon, I found myself concentrating on shifting with an emphasis on the thumb down thing SoS posted.
      If you are going at a speed that causes you to run off the road before ESC can provide any assistance, you may not experience the benefits of ESC

      On the way home, to make sure I didn't even get close to money shifting, I did the Cross Legged Monkey Foot. Best part of all is that you can't claim I did anything with the clutch since my left foot is no where near it.

      I grenaded my motor on my M3 right after I turbo'd it. I was going through a corner wound out in 4th gear with the motor all torqued up, shifted and hit 3rd instead of 5th. Bent a bunch of valves, screwed up the cylinder wall and a bunch of other fun stuff. Cost me a solid 5k to get it back together. Also, this was a common problem.
