We're learning (the hard way) that the synchros in these transmissions are um... soft. So doing this will almost certainly cause premature wear, which will cause them to seize, and well... shifting can go from noisy to hard, to impossible. Even if you 'think' you got a nice clean shift off without the clutch, even a small variance will be noticed by the hardware...

The 'soft' synchros are not a design or manufacturing problem, they are an 'improved customer experience' thing as it gives a more forgiving nature to the transmission. This is a commuter car, not a race machine. Treat it as such.

That's my view on it... to each their own.
