    Gears Question

    Hey guys i recently purchased a 2013 subaru wrx and I really don't know anything about them since I've been with honda my whole time as a car enthusiast. My question is that when I'm driving and let go of the gas I can slip the gear out of place but if I have the gas pressed in I can't slip the gear out. I was wondering if this is a major issue I should worry about or is it something that, that's how the car is for like in case something happens and you happen to not press the clutch to take the gear out while you're breaking fast or something. Sorry if this is a stupid question but I'm still learning and I haven't been driving standard for a long time so I don't know a lot about Manuel transmission either

    This is totally normal. And actually, if you pull hard enough you should be able to pull it out of gear at any point, now I'm not recommending doing this all the time by any means, or even at all. Zax, or resident physics guru, would be able to weigh in on this as well. But as the force increases on the gears (accelerating) it should, in theory, be more difficult to pull the transmission out of gear and into neutral without the use of a clutch. Confirming your explanation.

    You can actually shift without using the clutch if you match the rpms properly. Haven't done it in the WRX, but it was pretty easy to do in my jeep

    You should be able to yes... but I would not recommend it by any means. A Jeep is, well a Jeep. You can do practically anything with them.
