Driving Manual noob question

My friend asked me what damages if you shift gears without balancing gas with clutch on up shifts (no gas added) , will it save clutch abit ? and low rpm starts where the car shakes a bit

Without rev-matching? Usually not an issue for upshifts. For downshifts, not rev-matching wears the synchros. Has nothing to do with saving the clutch (or not).

If the clutch is fully engaged (foot off the pedal), then it sounds like you're lugging the engine -- not catastrophic, but not really good for the whole thing if it's a habit. There's no reason to start off that way -- it doesn't ease wear on anything.

A stock 4th or 5th gen clutch will easily go 100,000 miles in normal use, so there's no reason to try anything exotic.

Pretty much got flamed for driving like a jackass and was told to slow down. And I'll be damned, slowing down fixed it.
