manual transmission

these are a few questions that I have about driving a manual transmission.

when your driving and you stall does it ruin your transmission or gears? Or if I rev the car at around 2000rpm and release the clutch to the catch point would that ruin it?(I haven't tried it, I'm just wondering) When I'm driving and the car jumps from unsmooth shifting for example driving along and im in first and I don't get the rev high enough or match the gas right and I shift to second and the car jumps does this ruin the transmission or clutch?

The simple answer to your question is as follows. You certainly wont help the longevity of the Transmission by driving like that, but it's all minor issues that shouldn't see you notice much of a change!

I'll move this as par your request, too!

thanks cliff, well luckily I don't do this anymore most of the time anyways. I'm pretty good at shifting now even though I just got my car back. The only problem I still have is a slow take off, not to slow but slow like as in if your the 4th car at a light take off.

It's all to do with practice and experience. It'll get better!

Nah I don't think you're doing toomuch damage to anything. Some trannies can hold up better to more abuse tha others, so maybe you should do some research on yours. I know my tranny has been through countless 5,000+rpm clutch dumps and still drives fine, no clutch chatter, no gear grinding or anything.
