well thunk about it. if your power shifting with out a clutch your just slamming gears into each other. i wouldnt but, just speed shift it or get a good after market shifter to keep the gears closer together, hurst make a good kit and so does B&M

I am sorry to say I would have to agree with Race,lol what is up bro. When you slam it into the next gear all you are doing is making the trans shift before it needs to or after in this case. The best thing is leave it in drive and stomp on it. Oh by the way get a Mustang and you will be glad, lol. STANG OUT

True...If it is a 3650 you will strip 3rd gear.  Don't do it.  You wouldn't want your old man beating the sh!t out of you cause of your ignorance.
